Connect your wallet to a website or app

Now that you have an Ethereum wallet, you can login to certain websites using it.

Instead of creating new accounts and passwords for every website you interact with, you'll just connect your wallet instead. This lets you control your identity and take your assets/items with you all around the internet.

In this article, we’ll guide how to connect your wallet via mobile and desktop!

Connecting on mobile:

  1. To login using your wallet on mobile, locate the "Connect Wallet" button on the website you want to use.
  2. Select "WalletConnect" in the list of options that appears.
  3. Choose "Rainbow" from the list of wallet apps.
  4. The Rainbow app will automatically open and a prompt will appear for you to select "Connect".
