Saudi Arabia shut down many VPN programs and VPN Opera is one of them. Can Opera team fix this Problem. They block Opera extensions page too.
Hope someone have solution for this.

@alucard1360 Unfortunately, a censorship agency has the same capability as you or I of downloading and installing a VPN program or a VPN-capable browser like Opera. Then, by analyzing its traffic with a packet-sniffer, they can determine the IPs used to contact the VPN servers and block those at IP/censorship Internet routing servers. Alternatively, they can observe the packet headers associated with VPN protocols and block/interfere that way. Almost as fast as a VPN maker changes and deploys new VPN server IPs to its user VPN programs/modules, a determined censor can also update, analyze, and block the new IPs. In that case, about the best one could hope for would be to obtain short-term relief in the interim between deployment of new IPs and the censors completing their analysis and slamming shut the new doors.
There are ways of covertly tunneling encrypted data between a computer and an otherwise innocuous-appearing IP (ie: one not normally VPN-associated), but it requires the full, advance cooperation of that innocent-appearing IP site, and is well beyond the scope of general-distribution VPN tools.
