I have some problems with QGIS base maps like Google Satellite. After inserting them they just disappearing. I can see them only when I drag my map, or when I turn them on or off they just appears for one second and goes away again.

Any suggestion? (I already updated my QGIS, I uninstalled and reinstalled the plugin several times, I controlled the tick box in my installed plugin, and using Windows 10)

You can use the basemaps from the XYZ tiles in QGIS 3.x, installing them with the script by Klas Karlsson: https://twitter.com/klaskarlsson/status/972757121933733889?lang=de

Open Menu Plugins / Python console, then paste this script. In your Browser panel, you can now expand the XYZ tiles. The base maps appearing there can be added to the layer panel by drag and drop.
