Brave browser claims to be “one of the safest browsers on the market today“. Whether this claim is kept true until now or not, let’s dive in to the step-by-step guide on installing Metamask on Brave browser.
STEP 1: DOWNLOAD BRAVE BROWSER
First, go to their official website: https://brave.com/, then click ‘Download Brave’.
Then the BraveBrowserSetup.exe file will be automatically downloaded to your drive.
After the download is complete, run the BraveBrowserSetup.exe file on your computer. You might be asked if you allow this app to make changes on your device, just click ‘Yes’.
Then, it will download and install for a few minutes.
Once installed, you will now see the Brave browser icon on your desktop, click that and your Brave Browser is now ready to use.
Just like Chrome, Firefox, and other browsers we are accustomed to, Brave is just as easy to navigate. (Plus with additional crypto perks! If you want details about this, please comment below.)
Now, on to the next part.
STEP 2: INSTALL METAMASK ON BRAVE
According to decrypt.co, “MetaMask is a browser extension designed to make accessing Ethereum’s Dapp ecosystem easier. It also serves as a wallet for holding ERC-20 tokens allowing users to access services built on the network via the wallet.”
Now, to install Metamask as a plugin/extension on your Brave Browser, let’s head over to their official website: https://metamask.io/
Then scroll down to the bottom and click the Brave icon.
You will be routed to Chrome Web Store’s Extension plugins.
A pop-up will show.
Click add extension
Then it will download the extension and install it automatically to the browser.
Once installed and added, you will then be routed to a new tab which would require you to setup your Metamask account.
STEP 3: INSTALL METAMASK ON BRAVE
To get started, you will be asked to either put in your seed phrase (if you already have one) or set up a new Metamask account.
For those with seed phrases, you will be directed to this page:
For new accounts, create a password first:
You will then be given your secret recovery phrase, then when you click ‘Next’, you will be asked to confirm your recovery phrase.
Then, voilà, your Metamask is now set up and ready to use on your Brave browser! (Oh and don’t forget to transfer/put in some ETH or ERC-20 coins if you want to transact using this.)
