MetaMask’s newest update on the extension browser and mobile app comes with a new feature. The new 10.18.0 update requires users to grant permission instead of automatically processing it.
For the past few months, many wallets have been drained out of their digital assets because of automatic permission. MetaMask software engineer Alex Donesky shared a step-by-step guide to the new software.
He also talked about the frequent hacks and phishing attacks, he said, “There is some urgency to get something out there since this method is so commonly used.” But MetaMask users will now have the facility to grant permissions before anyone accesses the digital assets.
As the crypto market expands, security concerns have increased too. MetaMask’s initiative will definitely motivate other wallet companies to include this feature to save their users from falling into NFT scams.
