VPN: "Authentication credentials required"?

  • Hi Guys, the problem should be solved now. Could you restart Opera and check again. Please report if there are still issues with VPN.

    Hi, just trying using the VPN turned ON and it seems to be fine.....finally!!! 😃
    Until now can't find no issues. Thanks for the fix :happy:

  • I'm in the Philippines and for the last 3 days the VPN has not connected. It stays orange.

  • still (final):
    Authentication credentials required.

  • Have you tried to delete 3rd part data?

  • yes I did - didn't worked - BUT looks like opeara fixed it by now.
    Its working on all machine like desired, with the final and with the developers and beta versions.

    Now I am glad 🙂

  • It happened again. Cannot connect. Same error: "Authentication credentials required."

  • Same problem with newly installed Opera 42 x64.

  • Seems like clearing Third Party Data fixes it.

  • It doesn't, not for me. I can't access any site, and get the same notification over and over again: 'Authentication credentials required.' When are you going to fix this, Opera?

  • Clearing "Third party services data" under "Clear browsing data" fixed the "Authentication credentials required" when using Opera VPN problem for me:

    Menu->More Tools->Clear browsing data

    Uncheck everything except "Third party services data"

    Select "the beginning of time" (I didn't check to see if a more limited date range would work)

    Click "Clear browsing data"

  • It. doesn't. work.

    Click "Clear browsing data"

    @rob05667, Thanks Bro, this procedure worked for me as well, I think most people with this same problem would benefit
    from "Clearing Browsing Data", Specially "Clearing Third party services data".
    I even had another problem, namely I couldn't login to google.com because of an stupid error about not having cookies set and that is over as well, so thank you very much.
