How is Razer Synapse 2.0 an evolution of onboard memory?
Although Razer Synapse 2.0 and an onboard memory both serve the same purpose, which is to provide a storage solution for user settings, Razer Synapse 2.0 is not limited by storage capacity the same way onboard memory is. Unlike an onboard memory which has a physical limitation, Razer Synapse 2.0 is able to save its settings to the cloud and provides virtually unlimited space for users.

Razer Synapse 2.0 only requires an internet connection for the initial setup and installation of the latest drivers; online and offline modes are optional.

Will my Razer products require Razer Synapse 2.0 to function?
All Razer products function as plug and play devices. Razer Synapse 2.0 offers a service above and beyond basic functionality to enhance your Razer product's capabilities. This includes features like configuring, managing, and cloud-syncing device settings. Razer Synapse 2.0 also keeps your devices in optimal condition by automatically updating and downloading driver and firmware updates, as they become available. Razer Synapse 2.0 is not a compulsory software for your Razer peripherals to work - but it is advisable to use Razer Synapse 2.0 if you want to unlock your Razer peripheral’s full potential.
How much does it cost to use the Razer Synapse 2.0 cloud service?
Absolutely nothing. Razer Synapse 2.0 is a core software that supports all Razer peripherals, so it is instantly yours as soon as you purchase a next-generation Razer product. If you are interested in using Razer Synapse 2.0 with your current Razer peripherals, check out the current product compatibility list for PC and for Mac OSX to see if your device is Synapse 2.0 enabled.
Does Razer Synapse 2.0 track any data on my system?
Razer Synapse 2.0 tracks vital system information like Operation System version, Razer device data (hardware and firmware revision), region settings, etc. This helps us maintain and support all current and legacy devices on all relevant platforms. This data is also utilized to improve our future software and hardware products. If you opt-in to Stats & Heatmaps, the gameplay data tracked by that application is also gathered.
Will Razer Synapse be able to see my password and everything else I type?
No. Anything you type will not be visible to Razer.
When I try to login to Synapse 2, I get a "Network Not Available" error or "Error 3802", what is the problem?
This issue is typically due to something blocking Synapse 2 from communicating with our login servers. Check the following if you have this issue:
- If you have a firewall installed, make an exception in the firewall to allow Synapse 2 to communicate.
- Some school or work networks may block our software from communicating and you would need to contact your local system administrator to allow the communication.
- A VPN or Proxy setup on your computer can also cause this type of error.
If you have checked the above and are still getting the same error, it would be best to try and narrow down where the actual problem is occurring.
If possible, you may want to try another internet connection and/or another computer to see if you are having the same issues.
What do I do if I am locked out of my Razer Synapse account?
The lockout “freeze” will only last 5-10 minutes. After that time, you will be able to retry the login.
I downloaded Razer Synapse 2.0 and created an account, but I cannot log in.
Activate your account by clicking on the verification link in the e-mail that was sent to your registered e-mail address. You should be able to log in once your e-mail address has been verified.
I cannot log in and reset my password in Razer Synapse?
This is mostly due to not clicking the link in the activation email if your account was created less than 7 days ago. Double-check your spam or junk folder for the confirmation e-mail.
If the account is more than 7 days, you will need to re-register and, this time, activate the account.
Can I set Razer Synapse 2.0 to switch to a default profile after exiting a game?
Yes, you can. Synapse 2.0 will revert to the last profile used BEFORE you launched your game, upon exiting the game. You can set a “default” profile to ensure it was manually selected before launching any other linked applications.
If I have more than one of the same Razer devices, can Razer Synapse 2.0 configure all of them at the same time?
Unfortunately, Razer Synapse 2.0 currently supports only one of the same types at any one time. This means you can have multiple mice (e.g. one Razer Naga and one Razer Deathadder), but not multiple numbers of the same mouse (e.g. two Razer Naga Epic plugged in at the same time).
How do I use the Razer Synapse 2.0 WoW Add-On Feature?

When I launch a game, my Chroma devices display different effects than I had previously set.
You may be experiencing one of our official Chroma integrations in your game. You can check out the Chroma Workshop for more information on supported games and tier included effects. If you do not wish to experience these effects and would rather use your personal settings, simply navigate to the Chroma Apps tab in Synapse 2.0 and disable the “Chroma Apps” setting.
Are Chroma Apps just for games?
No, there is actually a wide variety of other applications and preset lighting profiles available for use at Razer Chroma Workshop and you can even submit your own creations!
I need help or have feedback for one of the Chroma Apps.
The apps and profiles you can find on the Razer Chroma Workshop are not developed by Razer. These are designed by third parties and we are only able to provide limited feedback and support for these applications. You may consider contacting the game or application’s developer directly with your feedback.
I am a developer and would like to add Chroma integration to my game or application.
More information about the Chroma SDK can be found at Razer Chroma Developer Portal.
