We are looking for Senior Mobile Developer!

Starting on December 3rd, 2019 we started rolling out MetaMask version 7.7.0 on the extension. We normally release to a small set of users to first to test the waters and in this case 20% of Chrome users received the update when we were notified of a behavior that was confusing many users.

This change had to do with a MetaMask feature we first described in August as EIP 2255: Web3 Wallet Permissions. …

Web3 Permissions Rolling Out: Sites Now Remember What Account You Connected With

Since the beginning of web3 browsers, there have been issues where there were privacy implications with logging into a site that were not obviously apparent.

Last year we began tackling these issues with EIP 1102 privacy-mode, which means only sites you’ve “Connected” to are able to see your current account, but this still left a problem open, where every site you connected to could see any account you “selected” within MetaMask

First specified in August via EIP 2255, our…

Introducing Web3 Permissions

We believe the blockchain ecosystem needs to fix its consent experience once and for all. The days of repeated confirmations to complete simple tasks in an application are officially numbered. Read our recent detailed article Here.

In short we’ve implemented a new permissions framework for use with a branch of MetaMask that works with a sample dapp using our new permissions API. The prototype we share here is roughly equivalent to a pre-authenticated version of OCAP-LD. It looks something like this:

We have built this permissions system so that new restricted methods can be added easily. In other words…

New Privacy Mode UI

This security feature that was enabled by default a few months ago required websites to ask user to see their Ethereum accounts. Our design team has been cooking up some rather sleek designs on this new improvement. We are proud to keep users safe, informed, and in control at all times.

When interacting with sites that don’t use privacy mode correctly, we’re looking to make it easier to log in, without having to turn off privacy mode across the entire app
