NFTs are a great investment opportunity if you’re well versed with how crypto and blockchain work and know what you’re doing. However, even if you’re an absolute novice when it comes to NFTs and crypto, there are a number of NFT marketplaces that make the process rather easy.
Opensea is one of the most popular and oldest NFT marketplaces around at the moment. However, that doesn’t mean it’s free from the occasional bugs and glitches. In this article, we’re taking a look at what to do if you can’t log in to Opensea.
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.
Disable browser extensions
Head over to chrome://extensions and try disabling all your extensions to check if the browser starts functioning again. If it does, enable them one by one until you have the MetaMask extension working correctly again.
If a malfunctioning extension is causing your wallet to misbehave, you will have to run the extension in separate browser sessions or disable the malfunctioning one completely to get Opensea to work.
Clear your browser’s data
Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Opensea to work.
Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.
Step 2: Select the cache and cookies options and make sure the Time range is set to All time. Click on the Clear now button to clear out all the data.
Check for updates
If the issue is in the browser itself, developers might release an update to fix the problem. Regardless, you should always ensure you’ve got the latest version of the browser installed to avoid running into issues that could otherwise be avoided.
Head over to chrome://settings/help and make sure you’re on the latest update. If you’re not, update immediately and try again.
Now restart the browser and try visiting Opensea again. This should fix the issue.
Reset the browser
Resetting your browser can fix all sorts of random bugs and glitches. Here’s how to reset Chrome (or Edge).
Step 1: Head over to chrome://settings/reset. Click on Restore settings to their original defaults.
Step 2: Chrome will show you a warning prompt. Click on Reset Settings, and your browser will reset to default settings.
Now restart the browser and try visiting Opensea again.
