I’ve been using MetaMask for a while now and so far haven’t had any issues. However, I’ve recently heard some horror stories about accounts getting hacked and funds being stolen. This got me concerned about the security of my own holdings. While I know that MetaMask guards the seed phrase diligently, it made me ponder – could my MetaMask ever get hacked, even if the hacker didn’t have access to my seed phrase?
I always make sure to keep my computer clean of malware and never share any sensitive information. I also understand that the seed phrase is crucial for the security of my cryptocurrency wallet. However, is there a chance that a hacker could somehow bypass the seed phrase entirely and gain access to my funds? Could there be some sort of software vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited even if they don’t get hold of my seed phrase?
In addition, what are the best practices or protective measures I can take to defend myself in this scenario? I’ve already taken the basic steps like ensuring my computer is secure and not divulging sensitive info. But is there anything else specifically related to MetaMask that I should be cautious about or any additional steps I should take to further fortify my security? I’m eager to hear your thoughts and advice on this matter.
