Resolving wallet connection problems for smooth transactions

Updated over a week ago

Welcome to our help center! This article will guide you through troubleshooting steps to resolve wallet connection issues. If you're experiencing difficulties with your wallet not connecting, follow the steps below to ensure a quick and seamless solution.

Troubleshooting steps

If your wallet isn't connecting to your web browser, it's likely they need a quick reset. Follow these steps to resolve the issue:

Keep your browser and wallet updated

Ensure that both your web browser and wallet are running on the latest version. Keeping them updated helps maintain compatibility and fixes potential bugs that could disrupt the connection.

Clear your browser's cache and restart

Clearing your browser's cache can resolve temporary conflicts that may prevent proper communication between your wallet and browser.

Follow these steps:

  • On your browser's toolbar, click on the settings menu (typically represented by three dots).

  • Select "Settings" from the dropdown menu.

  • Locate the "Privacy and Security" section and click on it.

  • Choose the option to clear your browsing data or cache.

Once the cache is cleared, close the browser completely and reopen it.

Use a desktop computer or laptop with supported browsers

For optimal performance, use a desktop computer or laptop to connect your wallet. We recommend using browsers like Chrome or Brave, as they are known to have good compatibility with most wallets.

Check for interference from security software or extensions

Sometimes, security software, adblockers, or other extensions can interfere with the connection between your wallet and browser. Try disabling or temporarily removing these programs/extensions and check if the connection issue is resolved.
