Missing NFTs

On occasion, you may open the app and see that your NFTs have disappeared — and are now MIA. Rest assured you still own your NFTs! Below, we’ll chat about some troubleshooting steps that you can take to have those NFTs viewable again 👇

First Step: Delisted Collection(s)


The first step is to determine if a collection has been delisted from a marketplace, such as OpenSea. Delisted collections will render as missing in the app. In order to have those collections viewable again, you’d need to directly connect with the marketplace involved (ex: OpenSea) and have the collection relisted.

Second Step: VPN


The next step is to confirm if you’re using a VPN. If you are using a VPN, you’ll want to de-toggle that and force quit Rainbow before re-opening the app.

Third Step: App Refresh


No VPN? Time for an app refresh!

For iOS:

Step 1: Go to Settings (within Rainbow)

Step 2: Tap Developer Settings

Step 3: Tap Clear Local Storage

Step 4: Force quit and re-open Rainbow

For Android:

Step 1: On your home screen, press your finger down on the Rainbow app until a pop-up appears

Step 2: Tap "ⓘ" for app info.

Step 3: "Force Stop" the Rainbow app.

Step 4: Click “OK”

Step 5: Open the "Storage" tab

Step 6: Select "Clear Cache" to delete all cached information

Always make sure before doing these steps that you have your secret phrase(s) written down and you’ve saved any data/backed up your wallet(s). While both these methods won't affect your wallets (only the temporary data on your phone), it’s recommended that you make these backups just in case!
