The Opera VPN App for Android and iOS has been discontinued:
But there is no such announcement for Opera Browser for Windows.
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
My vpn has switched to 4 locations like Americas, Europe, Asia. Though all my vpn addresses seem to be in Norway.
Same here, but Google thinks I'm in Russia or Ukraine or wherever Cyrillic is used (can't read anything)
PS: Yes, Opera built-in VPN is getting worse and worse....
Can you please check build from http://blogs.opera.com/desktop/2017/11/opera-51-0-2791-0-developer-update-renewed-vpn/ to see if this issue reproduces there?
Sorry for late response. It's mainly caused by work on in-house VPN infrastructure.
Unfortunately VPN downloads still abort with the renewed VPN in Opera dev 51.0.2791.0 (tested with location "Europe" / IP "188.8.131.52").
turn on the encryption in the torrent client it does work. vpn is great for hiding the fact that you're downloading a torrent or magnet, and the encryption in your torrent client in most cases will keep your isp from seeing what you are downloading.
But it doesn't prevent all other clients from seeing your IP. It's not your ISP who cares what you do, it's the right owner and his law firm. They pretend to be an ordinary peer but in fact it's a monitoring software which logs every client uploading chunks to them. Depending on the country you reside they go to the criminal justice, prosecutor, court or ISP with the logged IP and resolve them to the internet subscriber and that's the point you are busted.
Opera provides a browser based VPN service, not a system wide VPN which tunnels every traffic of every software installed on your computer through a VPN server. If you are looking for privacy protection for sharing your birthday and holiday videos through bit torrent, Opera can't help you. That's much more the business of SurfEasy paid plans:
No registry entry, no uTorrent setting will help you, because other peers can see your IP address. Only obfuscating your real IP through a system wide VPN (like SurfEasy) will prevent you from being busted.
It's pretty clear to me you downloaded a small torrent file (a few KBytes) through Opera VPNs servers but started it in a torrent client, which down- and uploaded chunks of your shared file to other peers through your unprotected internet connection. You have to understand, that Opera only protects its own browser traffic and not the traffic of any other program.
Opening a new topic shouldn't be enabled on the subcategories page of "Opera for computers":
That's looking like a mess.
Yes, sorry, 12.18 (Build 1872) was meant...
I still use an Opera 12.80 copy (besides Opera stable and Opera developer) with notes. I know Opera initially converted them into an HTML file and saved it on the desktop, when you upgraded to Opera 15+. Is there any way to convert the notes.adr into such an HTML file on demand or was this a one time option just for the upgrade?
Most probably a WebRTC leak as said before. My real IP is not shown on both test sites with Opera VPN enabled. But I use uBlock origin with checked "Prevent WebRTC from leaking local IP addresses" option, which sets Opera to "Disable non-proxied UDP":
So please do the same and repeat the tests.
How can I edit my own postings?
Click the 3 dots at the bottom right of your post and choose "Edit". You have a limited time to do so. After that you're out of luck or you have to ask a mod to do it.
The three dots just say: Bookmark, Share this post: Facebook, Twitter, Google+. No edit option?! The old forum had a 30 minutes deadline to edit ones postings.
Sorry, I thought it might be the DPI setting, because my screen looked the same (blurry) when DPI scale was set to 125 per cent (I use a 1920 x 1080 screen too). If this is not the reason, it might be the graphical driver? I read that Nvidea suffered from problems after W10 1709 upgrade?! I use Intel graphics 620 and Opera looks like it did before the upgrade (nevertheless 1709 is a troublemaker in another place for me).
Please check the DPI scaling of your Windows 10 in Settings | System | Display and set it back to 100%.
Google is working on a solution to block crypto currency miner in Chrome:
So it may find its way into Opera too?!
I generally block webfonts with uBlock origin because of privacy reasons and because they look frayed. But the new forum uses webfonts as icon replacements, which is a bigger problem. Without webfonts it looks like this:

But with webfonts the font is totally frayed and ugly to look at:
