Opera VPN Not Connecting – Temporary Fix Part 2

Opera VPN

A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article about the Opera VPN not connecting. I posted a temporary fix, just turn it on and off, but after a recent  update, it no longer works and the VPN still has problems connecting. That is, until I found another way to make it work again. Here’s what I did:

Turn Off the VPN

  1. Click on the VPN button at the beginning of the URL/Address Bar.
  2. Then click on the Opera Main Menu Icon (top-left corner)
  3. In the drop-down menu, click on History


4. Towards the top-right corner, click on the Clear browsing data… button


5. Then you get a Clear browsing data window. I like to set these options to the beginning of time and check everything else. The choice is yours.

6. Then click on the Clear browsing data button.


7. Now, go back to your VPN options. You may notice the data transfered this month is now reset to 0 B.


This works for now. So is it me? Or Opera?
