What is MetaMask?

MetaMask is a web browser extension and mobile app that allows you to manage your Ethereum private keys.
By doing so, it serves as a wallet for Ether and other tokens, and allows you to interact with decentralized applications, or dapps.
Unlike some wallets, MetaMask keeps no information on you: not your email address, not your password, and not your Secret Recovery Phrase or other private keys.
You retain all power over your crypto-identity.

How to install MetaMask:

  1. 2.
    Hit "Download" in the menu bar.
  2. 3.
    Click “Install MetaMask for Chrome”. You will be directed to the Chrome Web Store.
  3. 4.
    Click “Add to Chrome”.
  4. 5.
    On the pop up, click “Add extension”.
After adding MetaMask Extension, MetaMask will automatically open. You can also make sure it's easily accessible in your toolbar by clicking the jigsaw icon in the top-right of the screen, and hitting the pin icon.
