Installing and setting up MetaMask
MetaMask is available to download and install through the MetaMask website. Keep in mind that you have to check if you are using the official website to be confident you’re downloading the proper MetaMask extension.
Click the “Get Started” button to start on the MetaMask welcome page.
In case you are creating a new wallet, click the “Create a Wallet” button, or the “Import Wallet” button if you want to import an old one.
Choose a safe password to log in to your wallet from your browser.
The homepage will show you your seed phrase. Click the lock to view the words and write them down in the correct order. Keep the phrase in a protected place and never communicate about it with anyone.
You will need to repeat your seed phrase by choosing the words at the bottom of the screen in the proper order. Click the “Confirm” button the moment this is complete.
Your MetaMask wallet will now be ready to use. Click the “All Done” button to check your wallet.
