ConsenSys Revises Privacy Policies for MetaMask

Share This Post

Now since the crypto community pushed back against the company’s privacy policy last month, ConsenSys has made a few changes and added more details to how it stores user data.

In November, there were claims that MetaMask and Infura, two of the company ‘s most significant products, were collecting users’ wallet and IP addresses. This made the crypto industry very unhappy. ConsenSys was quick to point out in today’s note that these revelations did not alter or go against the company’s current policies. Instead, “aimed to solely provide greater transparency.”

ConsenSys stated “ today that it intends to delete user data after a week and that it never sells data collected through its cryptocurrency wallet MetaMask and infrastructure provider Infura to third parties. Users’ wallets and IP addresses are among the kinds of information that are collected, but only when they make a transaction.

Users of MetaMask will soon be allowed to pick a different Remote Procedure Call (RPC) provider than the default, which is Infura.

“There are many good reasons why users may want to use different RPC configurations, in particular hosting their own nodes, and we have always believed that part of the value we offer is in the user’s right to exit our offerings,” reads today’s announcement.
