Cannot find better category.

The country choices shown for their IPs does not include the UK - why not?

So this app cannot be used in the UK? I am in the UK - is that the reason?

You can use Opera VPN anywhere you want, but have limited number of possible IPs. As far as I’m concerned, Opera offers virtual locations in the USA, Canada and Germany.  For example, choosing the US server, an American IP will be appointed to your device making possible to stream geo-restricted content, such as Netflix or Pandora radio. In such a manner, if you want to have the UK IP address, you need to subscribe for another vpn services (e.g. tunnelbear which has free package for testing https://www.bestvpnrating.com/service/tunnelbear) seeing the fact that Opera VPN will be absolutely useless.

Thank you for responding and for that link - I'll check it out.

 

It is odd that Opera VPN seemingly excludes a UK IP.
