I sent avalanche from cryptodotcom account to MetaMask and it’s been almost a week with no luck getting them.

Yes I was just now able to import this address into my MetaMask but it says it is a “watched account” Is there a possibility of this being sent to a different account?

  1. I don’t quite understand the “watched account” you mentioned. Can you take a screenshot? Do not disclose information such as seed phrases, private keys, etc.

  2. If you feel that this account is not safe, you can transfer funds to other addresses or exchanges.
    MetaMask has a lot of articles about wallet security, you can read them all, which is very beneficial.

I was able to import the balance into my MetaMask portfolio but it seems to be a different account or not linked up somehow. It shows it in a watched account and not able to transfer money to anywhere.

I’m wondering if I may have accidentally created a wallet that I don’t know how to access. I had a friend showing me the ropes and once I got home I tried to have MetaMask on my desktop. Since then I have been utterly confused.

I understand. you just added this address on the portfolio page. In fact, you can add any address here, and they all belong to watched account.

Have you backed up the private key for this address?
If yes, import it following the instructions below,you can manage and use this account in the MetaMask extension.

If you don’t know how to export the private key, check this article

Finally, connect this address on the portfolio page, it will become “my account” instead of “watched account”. :wink:
