What is MetaMask?
When adding MetaMask to your browser, you may ask why you’d have to approve an extension to “read and change all your data on the websites your visit”. Get ready, the answer is technical:
If you are still not convinced, a good way to experiment and manage your browser is to sandbox your MetaMask, i.e. creating, say, a Chrome profile where MetaMask is only installed in browser with that profile. This way, you could browse with or without MetaMask at will.
That said, MetaMask is safe for browsing. Welcome--you're joining over 8 million MetaMask users all over the world!
