  • An icon entitled LastCard showed up recently on my sidebar, grouped under "Special Features". It keeps popping up to get me to try it out. I keep clicking "don't ask again" and I hid it from the sidebar, but it keeps reappearing and popping up again. What the heck is this, where did it come from, and how do I get rid of it?

    Thanks.

  • @oper8r can you show me a screen? To tell the truth I'm not sure if this is from the Opera itself. I know in Opera you may see a Tutorial in the sidebar, but this is the first thing I hear about LastCard.

  • @oper8r Might be related to Opera's new e-finance feature Dify, though I haven't seen anything related to that here.

  • Seems to be a feature for specific regions, at least at the moment.

    In LastCard page there is a link to download a build of Opera with it included and LastCard is mentioned in the Opera 76 changelog.

    Thanks for this. Yes, in researching what LastCard was, I noticed the "baked in" version on their home page for download. I'm on version 74.0.3911.218. I'll try "hiding" it again and see if it takes this time, but this kind of auto enabled advertising (with no apparent removal mechanism) is annoying and goes against their much touted ad and popup blocker philosophy. Sacrificing my privacy for the corporate gain is one of the reasons I dumped Google/Chrome. [end grumble mode]

  • This is clearly spam endorsed by Opera - why else are they ignoring it and not removing it?
