Vpn for opera windows always saying vpn is temporarily unavailable

  • After updating to version 40.,VPN never worked in my system. It always gave the error vpn is temporarily unavailable ,opera is resolving the problem. Please help me with this issue.
    OS:windows 10

  • I'm having the same problem!

  • Same for me :-(

  • same on mac / windows version..

    tried different wireless networks (also connection over LTE). It's definitely a Opera problem.

  • Same problem here, but Opera VPN works in Ubuntu/Linux, just not in the Windows version.

    Is this a new bug or is VPN just overloaded since it went live with the stable release?

  • I don't think the VPN is overloaded, because it works fine in Opera under Ubuntu/Linux.

  • Just loading these forums made the VPN drop and reconnect multiple times and by multiple I mean more than 20 times I sat and watched it turn from blue (connected) to red (connecting) and when you click on the VPN icon it says

    The VPN Location is unavailable at this time. Please select a new one below

    But this has no effect it connects then almost instantly disconnects with the same MSG as above

    @Opera if you going to provide a service like this you need to have enough resources for it to work properly or don't bother offering it

  • Same Problem...Stuck in connecting. Opera is like Samsung....trying to deliver free vpn which doesn't work.

  • Same for me. It's been like it for many weeks. I'm on a mac. Sierra OS. What's the problem?

  • Same problem.Both Vpn add ons does not work my system.If opera team does not solve this problem,I will stop using opera...Never load again

  • Both Vpn add ons does not work my system

    What do you mean by 'Both VPN addons'?

  • I have the same problem - on Windows 7 -and feel that I have been tricked by misleading advertising into downloading Opera and then into opening an account to comment on the first trick - it is as if Opera is phishing for email addresses and other personal info

  • So, wait, because the feature doesn't work for you, which may entirely be because of the ISP you are using and have nothing to do with Opera, that means its a scam? The mental gymnastics required to come to this conclusion boggle my mind.

  • it is as if Opera is phishing for email addresses and other personal info

    If you are going into this kind of discussion then please do it elsewhere.

    Sync apart, what requires an account, nor Opera nor any of its features require an e-mail address to be used. And besides that, Opera doesn't need to collect anyone's email addresses.

    and then into opening an account to comment on the first trick

    A little tip: If a subject has been discussed already since a while and you don't have anything really useful to add to the discussion, then avoid doing comments on it.
    This way you will be preserving yours and others time.

  • Your logic seems to be that it works for everyone who has not posted to say that it does not. I can only repeat that I was tricked into downloading Opera by a false statement and am about to uninstall it.

  • Your logic seems to be that it works for everyone who has not posted to say that it does no

    My logic is that when there's already dozens of reports about the same issue, adding a new one just to say 'hey, it's happening to me too.' is useless and a total waste of time.

    I can only repeat that I was tricked

    Well, I told you to not go into this flame bait line.

  • I've never managed to get the VPN to work on Windows 10 either. I've tried it on 2 PCs with no joy. It does however work on the same wifi network on the android version so that presumably rules out the ISP?

    Very strange...

  • I also have this problem please help. Also it blocks many sites even if I connect to it its extremely slow and some sites load other dont. example this sitedoesnt load on vpn
    another examples are cda.pl wp.pl etc
    i can visit them all without vpn however
    thank you

Looks like your connection to Opera forums was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
