I got it! I just deactivated my Ad Block and delete my data from My Flow Pc, and deleted and re-installed Opera Touch and it worked

I had this problem after I reinstalled my Opera and erased my user data, I got to connect everything the same way it was before, except Flow. Then I turned off vpn, adblock, nothing worked for me but delete my previous Flow information from my phone and unfortunately I lost many important messages... You have to disconnect both phone and desktop on settings and then delete Flow completely so it'll work I don't know why. When I got my new notebook I had to transfer everything from the old one and I got zero problems with Opera, I've never been so disappointed.
that works my gosh i had delete the stupid app to get it to work i was surprised

after the latest update to Upera 60 on Android, flow was introduced under settings. But it is impossible to connect the PC to opera. Only connecting PC to opera touch works under left menü bar Flow...
EDIT: It works now, after going to Flow on PC, top left 3 dots and doing emergency reset. Then restarted opera on pc 2 times , choose connect on android and opened www.opera.com/connect on pc
after connecting each phone, I restarted opera on pc

Still the same problems, 2.5 years later. Guess "My Flow" is not supported anymore and cancelled.

OK people, after trying every single solution suggested in this thread (including emergency resetting My Flow) without any success, let me share how I solved the problem:
- Backing up My Flow:
- Open My Flow.
- Click somewhere on a text.
- Press Ctrl+A on the keyboard, this will select everything so you can export your precious stuff.
- Open Notepad, Word or any text editor, paste the contents of My Flow and save it.
Now that your content is backed up, proceed with the connecting steps:
- Resetting every device:
And I'm not even sure if this is needed at all (cause I already had emergency reset and didn't have the opportunity to try without this step) so at first you could try to connect without resetting and losing your data:
- Open My Flow.
- Click the three dots and then Emergency reset.
- Reset the other devices too.
Again - I'm not sure this is required.
- Connecting devices:
- Open opera.com/connect
- Click Page information icon in the Address bar.
- Click Site settings.
- Opera Settings page opens and I changed every Block to Allow.
- Now connect your devices. Reload page if needed.
- Revert back to default settings on Opera Settings page by clicking the Reset permissions button.
- Post back the contents of the old My Flow. Time consuming! I have 38 pages of clear format text without space before, after and between lines in Word to put back. Post by post.
I so hope this process works for you too and even without the resetting part.

Click on "my flow" where it appears to scan with the QR code, on the top corner left you will have three dots, click on them and go to "Emergency reset", I think that solves your problem.
