Mac OS Where is the VPN Activator?

  • I am a bit confused. I downloaded Opera 38.0.2220.41 - Opera is up to date
    System: Mac OS X 10.11.4 64-bit

    and I found the instructions to 'activate' the VPN service, but following
    the instructions...

    " Opera menu, select “Preferences” and toggle the feature VPN on"

    there is no such place to do it. wtf. Any help appreciated

    1. enter opera://flags in the address bar, next type "VPN" in search box.
    2. "Opera VPN" set as enabled
    3. restart browser
    4. then toggle the feature VPN on in Preferences
  • Thanks...but its not clear to me where the address bar is...within the application under preferences? The search within the app doesnt find anything at all.

  • OK, wait...something happened. I found an 'enabled' switch, quit the browser, and restarted, and then was prompted to open a 'private window' for browsing...apparently the only time the built-in VPN works? Is that true? Thanks for your help...

  • In Opera Beta and Opera Developer VPN also works in a normal window. You have to wait.

  • Seems to be that Opera 12.16 for Mac has n’t VPN anymore. Is that true?
