NFT REVIEW NEWS Metamask Draws Criticism with New Data Collection Policy


Through a rather blasé tweet, Metamask revealed it had updated its T&Cs to clarify its stance on user data. Essentially, announcing to the world that it would begin tracking the personal information of its 21 million active wallets. It ended with an unconvincing disclaimer saying it would ‘do nothing‘ with the user data.

Following the announcement, Metamask has drawn a wave of criticism from the wider Web3 community. Many see it as an unwelcome move away from the decentralized nature of the industry. While others have pointed out that even if Metamask chooses not to use the data, it remains open to future exploitation.

According to further information, however, the data collection will only occur using the default Infura Remote Procedure Call (RPC). Therefore, users can circumvent this update using a private or third-party RPC. Alternatively, to remain anonymous, users can begin using a different wallet altogether.
