Flow or My Flow is a new feature in the Opera web browser for desktop computers that helps users share links, videos, pictures and more between various devices running the Opera web browser. On the desktop computers, you can have this feature just up updating Opera to the latest version. But on your mobile devices (Android and iOS), you must install a new web browser, Opera Touch, in order to use this feature.
If you are not using My Flow in your desktop computer then you can disable it. This will not remove any of the content shared previously using that device but it will simply disable this feature in the Opera web browser on your computer and can be re-enabled at any later time.
Here is how you can disable My Flow in the desktop version of the Opera web browser:
- Launch Opera web browser in your desktop computer. My Flow feature is present only in the Opera version 52.0.2871.99 and above. Therefore, you should update it, if your version of Opera is older.
- Click on the Opera icon near the top-left corner of the web browser and then select Settings from the menu. Alternatively, you can also press the hotkey Alt+P to open Opera Settings.
- On the settings screen, scroll down to find the My Flow section and uncheck the option Enable My Flow.
This is it. Now My Flow has been disabled in your Opera web browser. It will no longer send or receive the links, pictures, videos and other objects to any of the previously connected devices. You can always enable My Flow later on if you need it, using the exactly the same steps. You won’t even have to reconnect your Opera web browser to any of your mobile devices running Opera Touch.
