The Synchronization Is Not Working Topic - Opera for Desktops

  • @leocg in my case, when i click "Choose a login method" > "use mail address", the next step is "Let's start with an email" > and "Create account" > and when i add my mail, says "Create account" and "Password" and "retype Password". Is this a new way to log in? It needs to retype my password again?

  • @panosv Nope, that's the original way to login.

    But why are you creating a new account?

  • Opera v73 soes not sync on my computer.
    It does on other computers and even on mobile.
    It all started after formatting my pc.
    Before, it would just sync correctly passwords, tabs, history, etc...
    Now, when logged in, nothing syncs, no folder for my device is created on the bookmarks, and most interesting, when closing the navigator, the session is lost and a login is required to access the account again.
    I'm almost sure I could fix it by deleting my device called PIPOR-PC (main computer) and resync again, but, opera doesn't allow me to delete any device, only the bookmars of each device.

    How can I erase or unregister a device for good, so then I can resync as if it was a brand new device?.

  • Hello,
    You might be facing the Synchronization problem because your Opera might not be an updated one.
    Which Opera version are you using?
    The following thread may also help you:

  • @denniswilson-0 Hello, sorry to reach out again, but I need help with something more.
    Originally, when I realized that the password etc had not saved, I created an Opera account and turned on synchronization, believing that would help in the long run. The didn't help at all, since I never could seem to sync with the Opera servers, and I kept getting the error as seen in the first image.


    I then signed out of the Synchronization option, thinking that would stop that window from popping up, but I still see it incessantly. It's getting to be a major nuisance, and no matter how many times I sign in and sign off, the sync always attempts, and always fails, and this window pops up again.

    If you can, would you please help me turn this off completely? Hoping to hear from you soon.


  • came to this thread looking for an answer - so far, no. i have several computers, opera is updated on all of them (73) and i'm logged in - they all show synced under my account however the laptops do not show the main/desktop computer, they show each other but not the desktop, the desktop shows ALL the computers, including itself. how do i get the other computers to see the desktop?

  • I'm using Opera 62.1.3146.57513 on a Samsung Galaxy S7 running Android 8.0 but 'Sync and backup' has a status of 'Sync is paused'. When I try to log in using my password it appears to work and I even get a 'New sign-in to your Opera account' e-mail but the status remains at 'Sync is paused. Sign in again to resume.'.

    I have reset my password and I can use it to log into my account via the web and into my forum account but I can't get sync to work.

  • @operay Wrong forum, Android is in the Mobile forum.

  • Oops! I took a link from a Google search and didn't notice the forum title in the topic before posting.


  • Syncing between two computers. Both are signed in. Syncing doesn't occur.

  • This is still not fixed? This issue has been going for a year and still no updates
    Can you please then remove sync if it's not working at all?

  • @vrhmason What is not working exactly? Sync works here.
