What’s new? On July 6, the MetaMask team presented a version of the crypto wallet v10.33 with an upgraded interface. The upgrade has made the service simpler, more transparent, and intuitive to use. So, the developers took user feedback into account and combined the two top rows in the application, which previously displayed the wallet address, connection status, and network selection. The idea behind this change is to allow users to access the features they need in one go.

What has changed in the wallet? The developers made the connections to the sites more obvious in the top right corner to make it easier for users to manage the decentralized applications (dApps) that the wallet interacts with.

Also, account selection has been separated from the global menu navigation, and the avatar has been placed directly next to the name so that users always have a clear visual association. “This seemingly minor change has profound implications by increasing your awareness and confidence when interacting with dApps,” the MetaMask website says.

The switch between blockchains has moved to the top left corner of the screen, and each network is now associated with the corresponding token. This helps distinguish different networks from each other and keeps users safe.

The decentralized non-custodial software crypto wallet MetaMask was launched by ConsenSys in 2016 and is designed to interact with the Ethereum blockchain, layer 2 (L2) solutions based on it, and networks compatible with the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM).

In April, ConsenSys reported data leaks from more than 7000 customers worldwide. Over the course of a year and a half, third parties were able to obtain the personal data of users who contacted the support service.

In April, MetaMask developers released an app for buying cryptocurrencies for fiat. The service supports Ethereum, Polygon, Optimism, Arbitrum, Binance Smart Chain, Avalanche Contract Chain, Fantom, and Celo blockchains.
