Setup and Use Crypto Wallet in Opera browser

Do you want to sign up and use the Crypto Wallet in the Opera browser? Get started with managing your Crypto Currencies.

The Opera browser offers the feature to store all your cryptos in a secured Crypto Wallet. To sync the cryptos, we can connect our different devices to the same wallet account.

We can share the scannable QR code to receive or transfer the cryptos within the Opera Wallet.

In this guide, we have shared the complete setup to get started with Crypto Wallet in the Opera browser.

Step 1: Sign up for a Crypto Wallet on the Opera App

We can use Opera Mobile or Touch app on smartphones to sign up for the Crypto Wallet. We can use an iPhone or Android phone for registration, as registering for Wallet is unavailable using the computer. In this guide, we have used Android Phone.

  1. Open Opera Touch on your Android device.
  2. Tap the Profile icon in the bottom toolbar and select the Crypto Wallet option.

    It will automatically activate your Crypto wallet.
  5. You will get access to the Crypto Wallet start page.

  7. Validate yourself with the Biometric or Device passcode.

On the start page, you can also see the Crypto balance, dedicated tokens, and collectibles. You can send, receive, swap, and buy the cryptos directly from the Opera Crypto Wallet.

You can also share your QR code to receive cryptocurrency in your wallet. You can also share the Wallet Address to receive coins.

Note: If you ever lose your phone, the backup phrase will help you retrieve the Wallet account. It is also used for syncing the Crypto Wallet across different devices.

Step 2: Syncing Crypto Wallet with Opera on a Computer

After signing up for an account on your phone device, we can use the same credentials (or backup code) to connect with the computer.

However, Crypto Wallet is disabled by default; hence, we must enable it from the Settings page and then sync with the registered Wallet. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Opera browser on your computer.
  2. Click the Gear settings gear icon icon from the left-side toolbar to open the Settings page.
  3. Select the Features tab and scroll to the Crypto Wallet section.
  4. Turn on the toggle for Enable Crypto Wallet option.
    Crypto Wallet Toggle button under Opera Settings menuIt will add a wallet icon in your sidebar.
  5. Click on the Wallet icon in the sidebar and select the Restore Wallet command.

  6. Fill in the 12-word Backup Phrase from the Opera mobile and hit the Restore button.

The Wallet will be synced, and all the coins will be visible from the mobile browser. Your computer lock/password will protect the wallet on the computer browser.

Step 3: Synchronizing Opera Crypto Wallet on iPhone

Similarly, if you want to sync Opera’s Crypto Wallet on an iPhone apart from an Android phone, then you can follow the steps:

  1. Open the Opera app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap the More horizontal 3-bar icon menu and select the Crypto Wallet menu.

  4. Enter the 12-word Backup Phrase from your primary device and hit on the Restore button.

The wallet will be protected with a device passcode or Face ID, whichever is active on your iPhone.

Bottom Line

Crypto Wallet can be accessed on both your phone and computer. It lets you watch your transactions and crypto balance within your browser interface without relying on any trading sites.

The Wallet is highly secure; the wallet key and backup phrase are stored within the browser and not on the cloud. Opera also has a dedicated Crypto browser to manage multiple crypto wallets on a single device.

Note: The Opera browser does not even allow taking a screenshot of the Wallet page as a security feature to avoid misuse. Hence, we had to photograph the steps to add to the guide.
