  • To ensure the safety of your funds, MetaMask requires you to store your seed phrase securely. This is the only way to recover your funds in case your device crashes or your browser is reset. We advise you to write down your seed phrase and keep it in a safe location that is accessible only to you. The most widely used method is to write your 12-word phrase on a piece of paper and store it in a secure place.

Important: Never share your seed phrase or your private key to anyone or any site, as whoever has the private key have full control over your funds.

Click on “Next”.

Step 6 - Confirm your Seed phrase

Confirm your secret backup phrase by clicking on each word in the order in which the words were presented on the previous screen. Click on “Confirm” to proceed.

Congratulations! Your MetaMask wallet has been set up successfully. You can now access your wallet by clicking on the MetaMask icon at the top-right-end corner of your preferred browser
