We all want to stop it...
Except, well, Opera and their owners!
@redhounds yeah, I'd love to get rid of it, too. Such a waste of time and data.
The VPN connections seems on all the time while on 4G, even when the device has auo-locked itself, while on wifi it always has to reconnect whan waking which takes 5+ seconds. Any way to fix ?
I think that's more an iOS wifi thing. Any time an iphone locks/screen blanks, it puts wifi (mostly) to sleep - unless you're running an app that keeps it going, such as tunein radio. (It's apparently a frequently-detested "feature" to save battery life - wifi is steady drain.)
As I understand it, push notifications come in as a tiny notice via mobile data that will wake wifi up very briefly to allow the bulk of the notification through via wifi. The ones who disable mobile data are the ones who most detest it.
I guess Opera could offer a switch in the vpn app to keep wifi alive in whatever way tunein radio does it (it's the only app I regularly use that keeps wifi alive even when screen locked/blanked).
I just upgraded my iphone to 11.0.3, and Mini updated to 16.0.4 (as reported in the app store) right after.
Mini crashed when I tried to open it. I got a white screen with the red O and the word Opera below it. Then it went away. If I double clicked to go to the app switcher, I got a ghost image of it open, but if I selected it it went poof, again with the white screen and stuff.
This persisted through a reboot, but a deletion and reinstallation cleared it up.
Annoying, but thought folks might want to know...
