How to check your Monero balance if it doesn't show up in your wallet

During network updates (forks) or unstable operation of the Monero node, it may be difficult to display the current XMR balance or send coins. This does not affect the safety of your assets and your actual balance in any way, but it is an inconvenience. On average, it takes about 10 days to restore Monero, but if you need to exchange or send XMR urgently, you can export your private keys to the official Monero wallet and temporarily manage your funds there.

Attention! When you import private keys to a third-party app, you take full responsibility for the safety of your funds. Do not share your private keys with third parties or support. Do not enter them into suspicious forms or applications!
