How to get the latest version of the MetaMask Chrome extension?

  • Have you recently started facing technical glitches while using your MetaMask wallet on the Chrome web browser? If that is the case, it could happen due to various factors acting upon this. Based on the research that I conducted, I found out that the main reason why you are facing issues with your wallet is that you have not updated the MetaMask Chrome extension for a long now. Apart from that, there are many other responsible factors as well. In case your device is not connected to proper internet connectivity or your web browser is outdated, then you will not be able to use MetaMask properly.

    Though you must have tried some easy resolutions already, I am sure you might have failed in your attempts. So, what do you think you are going to do in that situation? Well, in my opinion, there is one more thing you can try. Yes, the best thing you can do is install the latest version of the MetaMask Chrome extension on your device.

    Method 1- Updating the extension

If you do not know how to update the extension, then you just need to right-click on the "MetaMask" entry in your toolbar and then select the "Manage extensions" option. Right after that, you will see the extension page in your web browser. When you are on the extensions page, enable the developer mode. Once done with that, you can choose the "Update" option present next to the "MetaMask" entry. In just a few minutes, the extension will refresh and the update will be available soon.

    Method 2- Install the latest version from the official website
