Can’t login to Opensea? Here are 6 solutions

Here are some solutions that you can try out. 

Wallet connection issues

If your wallet is experiencing connection issues, you won’t be able to log in to Opensea. Keep in mind that Opensea is just a way to access the NFT assets stored in your wallet and doesn’t store those assets itself. Hence, connection to your wallet is important. So, if the connection between your wallet and Opensea is hindered, you won’t be able to log in or see your assets on Opensea.

Multiple active wallets

If you have multiple active wallets active at the same time, there’s a chance that Opensea might be trying to connect to the wrong wallet. Try disabling the wallet you don’t intend to use and see if that solves your problem.
