VPN stopped working?

  • Hi Guys!

    Before just a hours I was using opera vpn with the stable version (RED one), and when now I want to use the vpn it says (The VPN Location is unavailable at this time) and its never end, any fix?
    Thanks!

  • The VPN option is now missing on my machine some how :(

    You can enable it by going to Privacy in the browser

  • If you click on the VPN button you will notice that it lists how much data you have sent through the VPN for the month.

    I feel confident asserting that once you pass a certain amount of traffic, your VPN access will go "unavailable" until a certain cooldown passes.

    I have two machines running Opera in front of me right now. The VPN service is functioning on one, but not the other. Same configuration, same IP... but different amounts of VPN data usage and thus (I believe) different rights to VPN access.

    I have no problem with a cooldown system on a free service, but I do think it ought to be made more clear what is going on rather than giving a message that implies a technical glitch.

    Thats make sense, Im with you, they really need to do some notification about the "VPN" thing to the community.

    Why if in the same place it says that you have unlimited VPN traffic?

  • the vpn option is gone.

    It's still there. What version of Opera are using?

    The word "Unlimited" in advertising has little connection to the word "unlimited" as found in a dictionary.

    In advertising, "unlimited" really means that there are non-disclosed limits that, upon being reached, mark the one reaching them as acting in an "abnormal" or "non-intended" fashion.

    I am speculating based on my experiences with the VPN and my knowledge that we live in a world of limits, not a world of magical unicorns and free lunches.

    Someone from Opera is free to come and offer a more plausible explanation of the observed behavior, of course... :P

    I'm using 41.0.2353.46

  • i thinks its overloaded not missing

    OK, but we are not talking about and ad.

    And you can't see the option to enable VPN in Settings > Privacy and Security?
