Hello, please do not add tokens of unknown origin. Here is a check tool that you can try. At the same time, please do not authorize unknown programs.

Hello Tksly, thanks for reply!
Okay I will not add those if I don’t know the origin of the token in the future!
But for now, is there any risk ? (as long if I am not connecting to any website or take part in airdrops?)
I tried to remove but this does not work?

Hi @Luk !

If you don’t know where they came from, it is strongly suggested you don’t interact with them at all, including adding or removing. This way you do not interact with the contract which could be malicious.

Hi Oktav, I saw the token on etherscan as one of my assets
So I was curious and I added the token to my MM (token has no value)
Afterwards I realised that it was not such a good idea :sweat_smile:

Hello, as Mentioned by Tksly and KBee, It is never suggested to interact with unknown tokens. Now that you have added the token, you had better to remove it from your wallet. In your MetaMask wallet, under Assets, choose the token you would like to remove and then click on 3 dots (shown on the image) and hide the suspicious token that you have added.

Hi @Maryam1, thnx for this!
I have to tell you that I tried that before but because I added this ‘fake token’ on my Iphone I can not see this 3 dots for hidding these kind of tokens, so I have no idea how to practice this?
At the other hand, in my browser on my laptop I can see the 3 dots and so there I can remove/hide it ! (but there I did not yet put this ‘fake token’ into my MM ;;-)))

Hi Luk,
Thanks for the explanation. Then, be careful NOT to interact with the token and you will be safe.

There is no risk in adding the token itself, but it may be risky if any dapp trades with this token
