How to stay anonymous while using MetaMask

Image description

Bad news: MetaMask, a popular on-chain Ethereum wallet, could share your data with Infura.

Good news: This can be fixed in two minutes with GetBlock.

This actually could be dangerous.

First, exposing your IP address makes it easier for Infura, MetaMask, and ConsenSys to impose geo-restrictions on your account. Additionally, implementing new data tracking practices is inconsistent with the β€œdecentralized” ethos of on-chain wallets.

How can you protect your data?

You can change the RPC at any time: technically it's just a service that simplifies the connection between the blockchain and your wallet.

GetBlock will not share your IP and ETH wallet address with anyone. That's why it might be a wise choice to try our free RPC.
