VPN stopped working

  • thanks @opera team! fixed and working.

  • Hi all, it's known issue: "VPN – there are some issues with service availability, so you’ll notice that there is never-ending ‘Connecting’ status displayed. Our developers are already working on it" - the source link.

    Got it, and....it's back! Thanks so much!!

  • 10x opera, it's working now

  • Thanks Opera team - VPN now connects. Unfortunately "unauthorized access" issue remains.

  • Looks like the issue could be back again

    Version: 42.0.2372.0
    Remains at "connecting"

  • Please fix the VPN ....... again.

    Version: 42.0.2372.0
    Update stream: developer
    System: Windows 10 64-bit

  • VPN not working on my Mac with OSX Sierra with version 42.0.2372.0

  • it's not working on

    Version: 42.0.2374.0
    Update stream: developer
    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)

    as well.

    it's constantly connecting/disconnecting and because of that every click takes minutes.

  • When I run Opera, if I go and clear the history (all but saved passwords) - this will switch off the vpn, then I switch the vpn on (it takes some time) and it doesn't drop, it's stable. This is until I close Opera. After I close and run again I need to do the same thing to make it work otherwise it's flashing blue/amber and takes more than a minute to open a page.

    Please fix.

    why you always have to break the vpn with every new build?

  • Same, did a roll back.

  • For all of you who recently have issues with VPN in the developer version: Can you please go to the "Settings / Privacy & security" section, then in the Privacy section, click the button "Clear browsing data" then select only "Third party services data" and clear it? It should fix the issue for you.

  • Confirmed fix. VPN seems to be working again, thanks.

  • The fix works!!! VPN fully funtional

  • Nice fix! Thank you.

    It did not work for me.
    And everytime I clear the browsing data, and them try to connect to VPN the browser crashes.

    Any ideas?

    Version 42.0

  • go to the "Settings / Privacy & security" section, then in the Privacy section, click the button "Clear browsing data"
    I cleared all browsing data and that worked for me.

  • Thanks, nicanor... now works!

  • I cleared my browsing data and it's still not working?

  • I cleared my browsing data and it's still not working?

    Don't know. It isn't? 🙂

  • For me the problem was due to my anti-virus. I did not use Opera for a while but when I tried after a gap the VPN was not connecting. I thought there would be an update and it would be fixed. That did not happen. Then I searched forums for a solution but could not find one - I was almost convinced that this was a bug with Opera which will not go away. I think Leo asked in one of the posts what changed? 👼

    And after reading another post that for him the VPN was working on one laptop but stopped working on a newer one :sherlock:
    I decided to try different options and see. After changing profile names, switching ISPs and turning off the firewall the issue could not be fixed. So, I installed developer and beta versions. That did not change anything. Then I turned off AVG and voila VPN was working. I installed the other most recommended anti-virus and the problem is back again. Luckily I can turn it off from the tray connect to VPN and then turn on the AV to continue using the IP of a different location. Now, can someone suggest how to change IPs without having to turn off AV 😕
