MetaMask says that because of the way the blockchain works, you can’t delete an account on the Ethereum network for good.
Since it doesn’t store your information, there is no account to delete. Your ETH addresses are always on the blockchain, so you can easily forget them or stop using them if you want to.
So, if you’re using MetaMask on your phone, you can just uninstall it. If you want to get rid of MetaMask from your browser, you can do so by following the steps below.
- Right-click on the tab for the browser add-on.
- Choose “Remove from Chrome” or “Remove from any browser.”
- You can now see that MetaMask has been removed from your browser.
- Even though you can’t delete accounts you’ve made, you can still delete accounts you’ve imported with private keys or JSON.
Follow the steps below to learn how to get rid of an imported account;
- Click on the account icon in the top right corner to get to My Accounts.
- If you click or tap on the account that was imported, the account view will appear.
- Now, tap the right menu with three vertical dots.
- Choose “Remove Account” from the menu that drops down.

Is MetaMask safe?
