How to Add MetaMask Wallet to iPhone or Android

MetaMask is a popular cryptocurrency wallet that you can download to your phone for free. Once installed, you can connect MetaMask to all kinds of DeFi applications (dApps) to easily send and receive cryptocurrencies.

The MetaMask mobile wallet is most useful with Ethereum blockchain-based tokens and apps. It can be used with NFT marketplaces like OpenSea or Foundation. You can also buy and sell tokens with DEXs like Uniswap. Many other dApps are also compatible with MetaMask.

How to install MetaMask on iPhone or Android?

You can download the MetaMask app on Android or iPhone. We’ll use an iPhone as an example here. If you are using an Android phone, the download and installation steps are very similar. Once installed, MetaMask works the same no matter what phone you have.

To get started, go to the iPhone App Store or Google Play Store, search for MetaMask and install it.

MetaMask download page on App Store.

Once the download is complete, open the MetaMask app from your home screen. Once the application is open, press “Get started”.

The “Get started” button is circled.

After pressing “Get started”, you need to press “Create a Wallet”. If you already have a wallet, select the “Import Wallet” option.

If you have MetaMask installed on your browser, you can select this option to integrate your existing wallet into your smartphone app.

The “Create New Wallet” button is highlighted to begin setup.

The next page will ask you if you want to accept the MetaMask Terms of Service. You can select either option to continue.

MetaMask User Agreement with “I Agree” and “No Thanks” options.

Now you will create a password for your wallet. Make sure you agree to the terms of use. If you use FaceID, you can also enable this option. It is enabled by default.

Create Password page.

Before continuing, watch the video to learn more about the importance of your passphrase recovery.

You will now be able to access your recovery passphrase. Your recovery passphrase is the most important piece of information.

Write down your secret recovery phrase on a piece of paper. Do not store them on your computer. Make sure you always know where your Recovery Passphrase is saved.

Click on the box that says “Show.” Write down your secret recovery phrase.

Now that you have a MetaMask wallet, you can interact with all kinds of dApps, buy NFTs, or send and receive Ethereum.

Use MetaMask on your phone

There are different ways to connect your MetaMask wallet depending on whether you are using a computer or your phone to interact with a platform like Uniswap, OpenSea or Foundation.

Whether you’re using a computer or a phone, you’ll usually see a “Connect Wallet” button or something similar on whatever platform you’re using.

If you’re on a computer, once you click this button, you’ll be prompted to select the wallet you want to connect. Select the MetaMask option. A QR code should appear. Sometimes the “Connect Wallet” button only displays a QR code and does not allow users to select MetaMask. That’s OK. An example of the Foundation’s QR code is shown below.

Sample QR code.

MetaMask has an in-app QR code scanner. Press the square button at the top right and proceed to scan the QR code on your computer screen.

If you use your phone to access a platform like OpenSea, connecting your wallet is even easier. By pressing the “Connect Wallet” option in OpenSea, or any other platform you use, you will be prompted to open your MetaMask wallet. Once opened, a notification will appear to confirm the connection. No QR code is needed. By confirming the notification, your MetaMask wallet will connect to the platform you were on previously. Return to the platform and the wallet should be connected.
