Troubleshooting

My wallet won't give me the option to show the device's camera, what should I do?

Not to worry! All this means is that you already have some crypto inside both of your Exodus wallets that you are trying to sync.

All you need to do is simply send all of your crypto from one wallet to the other, to ensure only one wallet has crypto in it then follow the relevant steps above!


My desktop doesn’t have a camera, what should I do?

This is the procedure to use if your current computer does not have a webcam available.

Please note: Make sure you have absolutely no crypto inside of Exodus on the computer without a webcam you are trying to sync to. This process will overwrite your current Exodus wallet on this computer.
