MetaMask solves privacy concerns related to accounts

Metamask minimum

In the latest update, the developers of MetaMask have ruled out the ability for non-custodial wallets to automatically merge all accounts when interacting with the dapp.

Accounts will now be separated when connecting to decentralized applications – they will be maintained in separate browser tabs.

“For example, you will be able to use account #1 as a public account and linked to your ENS, while account #2 will be dedicated to DeFi activities that you want to keep private. Now they will not be connected to each other,” the blog said.

The update provides options to limit the amount of data sent to third-party services, as well as change the default Infura’s RPC provider. The latter is related to ConsenSys, which also owns MetaMask.

On November 24, 2022, ConsenSys announced an update to its privacy policy, which caused an uproar in the community. Users say they have less privacy and an increased risk of identifying individuals for law enforcement action.

On December 6, in response to community concerns, the company clarified that it would shorten the retention period for collected IP identifiers and wallet addresses to seven days.

Recall that in February 2023, ConsenSys added privacy settings for the popular MetaMask non-custodial wallet to a browser extension to facilitate the process of changing RPC providers.
