Metamask is rolling out a new update for its mobile app and browser extension that fixes the privacy issues that users encounter when using the popular crypto wallet.
In a statement, Metamask says that the new MetaMask mobile now allows users to choose which account in their wallet should be associated with a decentralized application (DApp).
All accounts in the wallet were previously automatically linked when users connect to a DApp. Metamask says the new user interface, which enabled toggling between wallet and browser in a single tap within the mobile app, gives more control and transparency in choosing which of the accounts should be connected to or disconnected from a particular application.
“Every account and DApp connection is maintained separately in browser tabs, even as new ones are opened. As a result, each account can be conveniently disconnected from its corresponding tab.”
The updated browser extension also enables users to maximize control over their data as well as limit those sent to third-party services. The advanced configuration settings now have the option to disable certain features that send requests to third-party APIs.
“These options are on by default as they are additive to the experience, but can be turned off for any reason: incoming transactions, phishing detection, choosing custom network.”
