No VPN function

  • Hello

    I downloaded Opera for Mac and tried to use the VPN function, however, the option is not present in the settings menu
    Previously I used this version of Opera in China where VPN is not available. How can I make it available again?

  • Try clicking on show advanced settings or go to private mode, you should see the option once there.

    Problem is, my Opera version considers itself to be a Chinese version, even the start menu has Chinese websites for some reason. How do I change my region?

  • Hi @kshar,

    Try moving away your local state file, which saves, amongst other things, your region. Do this:

    • Make sure Opera isn't running

    • Open Terminal.app

    • Enter on the terminal

      mv ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/Local\ State
      ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/Local\ State.backup

    • Start Opera

    Hello, using this command gives a prompt that there is no such directory

  • Yeah, the formatting was messed up. Try again:

    mv ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/Local\ State\
    ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.operasoftware.Opera/Local\ State.backup

    Hello, I tried multiple times and this does nothing, only change is that my quick start menu now shows Chinese websites
