Hi, i have 5 metamask account, i’m using chrome extension. when i’m trying to export my accounts it only shows the same mnemonic, i already tried changing one account to another but it only shows the same mnemonic. To clarify Account 1 - 5, account number 2-5 shows the same mnemonic from account number 1.

Hi bharmon,

Good morning. Hope you are doing well and had a nice Easter holiday.
I have a question about how to restore my Metamask account,
I accidentally did not see a Metamask login page had been moved onto a scroll bar.
I then thought I had to import my account via seed phrase to a new account.
I did that but apparently I did not do it correctly as I did not or add a private key phrase which is I am not sure how to identify on the Metamask account.
I thought I restored the account with the tokens but the new account does not show the tokens.
Have I lost these tokens or coins permanently?.

I would love to recoup my tokens or coins if possible.

Thank you for your consideration.

Morning everyone,

I trust that everyone is well. I am also having a similar issue. I have my seed phrase which I always use and have been trying to log in to my account but the extension keeps rejecting my seed phrase as an invalid seed phrase when I have been using the same seed for months. I don’t have the private key and I only have the account address. Is there a way I can use my account address to retrieve the account or the tokens in that account since the seed I use has appeared to be invalid. I would like to know if this can be resolved.

Hello everyone,

I m facing actually the same problem. After an attempt of hack i delete my wallet before attempting to generate a new one with my seed phrase.
The app told my unvalid seed phrase. But that s exactly my seed phrase.
I don t know how to do éventually. I have all my incomes and assets in this wallet and know i m thinking about suicide.

Sorry, for this message i hope you ll all be good

You’ll have the same seed phrase for all of your MetaMask accounts/addresses, but different private keys for each one.

You can find steps on how to locate your private keys here.

When you import an account, you will need to add the RPC network and custom tokens that were on your previous wallet. Your balance has not changed, just your wallet settings, which you’ll need to reconfigure.

Dear bharmon,

Thanks for your thoughtfulness,
How do I reconfigure my wallet??

Thanks again.

Can you please clarify what you mean by “lost coins?”

Be sure you’ve added the custom tokens to your wallet.

Hi there

Thanks for getting back to me

I bought some tokens end of match and vested them in my MM wallet this was on RSK mainnet.

1 week later i bought a different token on Eth mainnet and used MM

Where i went wrong i think instead of downloading a new MM wallet for i used impoert wallet with seedphrase and kept doing that for other tokens

Now i cannot find the address with the RSK address

I have the public address if that would help you to help me recover the tokens

this is my wallet address 0x7FD733A5e4B4F0Cd51E85d53199594c057fD2d46

Many thanks

Also to add im very to MM so please forgive me for this mess



I have Meta ask set up in my android phone. I have the seed phrase I used in my phone set up. Now I downloaded Meta Mask to my Laptop and set up an account. How do I enter my seed phrase so I can see my tokens that I can see in my phone set up.
