- MetaMask is a browser plugin that allows users to exchange crypto currencies in their browser. It also has an android app available. However, it is not available on the iOS store because Apple doesn’t allow apps that facilitate cryptocurrency trading on its platform.
- But now, with Apple Pay, iPhone users can buy cryptocurrencies from the MetaMask website by using the phone’s fingerprint sensor to authenticate a purchase.
- MetaMask is a bridge that allows users to access Ethereum’s distributed applications on their browser. It enables the user to run Ethereum dApps right in their browser without running a full Ethereum node.
- The extension can be installed by visiting the MetaMask website and clicking “add to Chrome” or “add to Firefox”. The extension then has to be enabled for the user, usually by entering an 8-digit code from your phone.
Meta Mask’s Compatibility with Other Wallets
- The compatibility of Meta Mask with other wallets is not an issue. Meta Mask is compatible with any wallet that supports either the TREZOR or Ledger Hardware Wallet.
- The only problem with this compatibility is that it can be difficult for some users to set up their hardware wallet, which might make them want to use other options like MyEtherWallet instead of MetaMask.
- MetaMask includes a secure identity vault, providing a user interface to manage your identities on different sites and sign blockchain transactions.
