Opera GX / Opera Touch - My Flow stopped working, can't reconnect

  • Hi, I recently tried to send a link to My Flow as usual, but my laptop's browser won't let me do that anymore.
    I use Opera Touch on a Samsung Galaxy J3, which worked perfectly too until a few days ago.
    I've never been able to scan the QR Code, but since I could type in the connection code, it didn't matter. But now Opera GX won't display the connection code at all, and I still can't scan the QR Code with my phone.

    I've tried using the "re-install" function of Opera GX, and deleting local files on Opera Touch, but none of this helped.

    What are my options ? I rely on this specific feature a lot.

  • the issue's same

  • Hey there, I guess I am not that late in answering this problem, but I figured it out... this is the same thing that happened with me. When you click on my flow in the sidebar, you will be able to see 3 dots in the top left corner. Click on that and then click on emergency reset, my flow will reset and then you can easily connect your mobile device. The browser may tell you that there is no need of an emergency reset, trust me there is and click "ok".

  • @UditDaftary Thank you, I've been losing my mind over this for ages and THIS finally worked. ♥

  • @uditdaftary Does the flow emergency reset option only reset flow or does it reset the whole opera browser to their original defaults? I wanted to ask before I try since I don't want it to reset the whole browser completely. I am just trying to get flow to sync.

  • @lancealot It should reset only Flow.

  • @leocg I tried this and you are correct it seems to have only reset flow. Unfortunately it didn't fix my issue.

    Do you know if flow is available for Opera for Android connected to Opera for Desktop that is already setup with sync using a passcode? I could never get this to work. The only way I could get it to work is to use the quick connect to device sync option, which creates a random account for all your sync data. When I tried this in the past I got flow working, but I want to use my existing sync account with a passcode, and this I could never get working.

  • @lancealot I would have to check, but I guess Flow only works in Opera for Android through sync.
