    Dear Opera,

    For about 2 months now, when I try to sign in to my Opera account on the Android app, I get this error message:

    "Temporary server error. Please try again later."

    Please help.

          Yes, I also have this issue on the latest version of Opera Mini on Android on A Samsung J3 - which has worked perfectly with Opera Mini until the last week or so. I am in Australia. I can only sign into my Opera account to sync my bookmarks etc, if I am on mobile (cell phone) internet not my internet connection at home.

          I have done a clear data and cache and to no avail.

          And also, Opera Mini works well at home via Wifi on my home network but its impossibly slow when used via cell phone data connection.

          This has not been the case for me for most of this year but its now unusable. Very sad. :(

                I have some delay to access HTTPS site if I'm logged in with Chrome Browser, on the other hand I can access HTTPS site prior signing process with Opera 37 for Android.

                      Something blocking cookies, perhaps? Some Android "privacy" programs can do that.I have the same problem Opera version 37.0.2192.105088

                        Have you tested renaming "com.opera.app" (or something like this) folder, Opera and try to login?
                        Root explorer may needed. (ES File Explorer) ?

                          Same problem for long time (maybe 1 year already), for every time I downloaded the app update, I always check whether it can synchronize the browser data or not, but each time, it disappointed me.

                          And if cannot synchronize, I will only use it for very very few occasions, almost won't use it.

                            Lazy-ass opera, if your service is dead take it out already from the browsers and close the website!

                            Stop making the customer lose time.

                                Sign in fails in Opera for android: "Temporary server error..." On the same Opera browser, I can browse to opera.com and sign in in the webpage.

                                So far 2 years without a fix, likely no fix will ever be available, but one can never lose hope, :)

                                      It's late August 2017 and I haven't seen anyone from Opera support addressing this issue. WHAT THE FUCK?! If it's not resolved quickly and stuff cannot be synced between PCs / phones then I don't see a reason in using Opera altogether, I'm running low on patience.

                                          I got this problem after doing a factory reset on my phone and reinstalling the apps. Forced me to change my password. did that and now I can sign in to Opera PC but get a temporary server error when trying to sign in on Opera mobile. Interestingly I can sign in on Opera mobile Beta

                                            So I just tried to test the sync feature on a number of devices. I have tried Both my Wi-Fi Access points and my cellular network on the G2. The error message I receive when I try to log in or create an account on an android device is the one previously mentioned: "Temporary server error. Please try again later." I'm in Sweden.

                                              I seam to have better luck with Opera mini(28.0.2254.119213). The sync feature seams to work on Opera mini with the LG G2 and Galaxy Tab S at least. Minis sync didn't work with the Galaxy Tab. I have not tried the other devices yet.

                                                WTF, can't believe it's the end of August 2017 and still no answer because they can't find the problem? Hey Opera staff, we're here, our problem is that we can't sign in to our opera on our Android devices, is it so hard to see the problem? Take a phone or 100 of them and try to sign in with different accounts, it's not that hard! Seems like after every update Opera looses one by one the functions that I like since November last year. It's not stable anymore when I open 100 tabs from the bookmarks, on android, youtube doesn't run on background anymore, crashes every now and then on both devices, freezes. Dudes, bring back the last year opera and stop there, don't update until Opera doesn't have a qualified team o developers, fire the young infants that can't solve some simple codes!

                                                  I experienced this too. I installed Opera in my windows laptop and android phone and I couldn't log in from my phone. I wanted to try out Opera. I just uninstalled it and went back to my previous browser.

                                                    I can't believe this is a problem that is still running after all those years! I too run in to this and have no way to sync between my mobile and desktop, therefore, due to lack of fixing, I will change browser.

                                                      Using an IPad 4 and Opera mini and I can't seem to sign in, while I can sign in with my android phone. The message it shows is "connection error. Can't sync data. Try again later". What to do?

                                                      Read the forums rules would be a good start.

                                                      Take special attention to numbers 1 and 2.

                                                        I hate to add another similar reply to this thread, but I am also having the same issue, unable to log in to my Opera account. I'm using a fairly new, top-shelf android mobile phone - the Vivo Xplay5S. I just recently switched from Firefox and downloaded Opera for Android - version 47.7 something, if that helps. Fyi, I am in China, which I thought might be the problem, but based on the other comments above, maybe not. Anyway, logging in is not a deal breaker since the Opera browser is otherwise wonderful in every way. Fast, great design and page rendering, fast video, everything you'd want in a mobile browser. So, thank you for offering this great browser for free - and good luck to you with this little bug! I am confident you can solve it.

                                                          The "Can't sign in, Temporary server error" has been fixed & now I can login through opera browser on android. But here's the problem, although the browser is signed in, it doesn't sync anything with my other devices signed in to that account. I can't access their tabs, bookmarks etc. Also, on my Windows PC, under Bookmarks > Other Speed dials, the android device is not listed. So this implies that Opera fixed the sync sign in error superficially. Its a fake "Successful Sign-in". The Sync service just doesn't work AT ALL. Tried reinstalling the app/logging out & logging back in. DOESN'T WORK.

                                                          But here's the problem, although the browser is signed in, it doesn't sync anything with my other devices signed in to that account

                                                          It belongs to another topic.

                                                            Some good news to report, possibly helpful to others who are having difficulty logging in. First, some background: I live in China, behind the 'great firewall', so Google websites are all blocked. Now the good news: Using a VPN, I went to Playstore and downloaded the latest version of Opera for Android, version 4.3, not the Beta, fyi. I was then able to successfully log in to Opera AND sync my bookmarks by using the Google log in option. In other words, problem solved. Not sure if that helps anyone, but if you're having problems logging in to Opera, try logging in through Google. For whatever reason, it worked.
