No VPN option in Opera browser in Linux

  • Hello,
    I have installed Opera browser in my Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. However there is no VPN option in the -> Privacy & Security tab. Does VPN work for Opera in Linux? Or is there something I am missing? Please see the attached file.

  • The vpn settings are right here


    Although I do not use it, I enabled it just to check and It does work (= I get a different ip when I am using it).

  • Dear all, I download and install opera version 58.0.3135.107 on Linux OS, but when I try to enable VPN I did not get any option in the settings/privacy and security path as well as in settings/VPN at all.

    Please tell me what is wri=ong with it?

    with best regards,

  • Where in the world are you? VPN may not be available in some places.

    I have the latest version of Linux Mint installed and it is there just fine. You have to go to Settings > Advanced > Features and you will see VPN right at the top.

    To be honest I have found the VPN feature to be a bit buggy, in that, I will often loose my internet connection. After I manually turn off VPN, the internet comes back again, and I then manually turn the VPN on again. It will work for a given period but at some point it will go again and I have to do the same thing.
