Metamask Private Key

Is there any chance to retrieve my account private keys? i reformat my pc without saving my private keys.

Are you looking to retrieve the 12 words secret recovery phrase or the 64 character private key?

if you have a back up of the browser with the working MetaMask, you can try the methods in this article.
This will help in recovering the secret recovery phrase.

If you’re looking for the private key to an account that was imported, the above methods won’t help, you will need to first recover the account where the private key came from using that secret recovery phrase.

What if the word seed is opening a different account? how to recover the previous account? the words seeds are correct, but it looks like a bug deleted the metamask wallet account! I’ve seen several identical reports and it looks like metamask is ignoring this issue!

It is highly unlikely that the same secret recovery phrase recovers a different wallet. If you can help to provide technical proof on this, we do have a bounty worth 10 ETH.

Cases like these are often wallets from a different set of secret recovery phrase or it was originally imported.


It’s amazing the ability you have to help the community the only thing you know how to talk around here is this, of course there is a problem in your wallet but you don’t accept it, but the community will come together and overthrow this empire that you think you have it! look for the problem and stop blaming everyone.


This problem hasn’t been around for months now and because of the answers you’ve been talking about here, you didn’t even consider analyzing the reports! just close the topic and that’s it.

My seed restored a different account and you simply closed the topic with the greatest view you had!

Hi, I have in my Wallet 2 accounts, or 2 public addresses, the first one is the one it gave by default and the second one I created to use in the BSC network. Yesterday I had problems on my cell phone and needed to reinstall the app. I entered the 12 words, and as usual, it showed me only the default address, I registered the Binance Network, and following the recommendations, I gave it create, so I could recover the second public address, I did it 1, 2, 3 up to 26 times and it still does not show me the Public Address that I had originally. IT IS NOT AN IMPORTED ACCOUNT. It is original from the same wallet. I am entering the seed in the correct order and form, I check to avoid possible errors, and still nothing. I can’t get the second account to appear, I check Bscscan and there I can see my public address, with its balance, but I can’t see it in Metamask. It is the account I have to enter PlanVsUndead. I wrote to metamask support, but they claim it is impossible for this to happen, but it is happening to me!!!, and I read that I am not the only person with this situation, but metamask does not respond and does not seem to take reports seriously. Can you help me?


Metamask does not respond, because they claim, they are lies, or it is false what we say, apparently their algorithms are INFALLIBLE, they think so, because there are many of us with the same problem and still nothing, I have already generated more than 60 accounts, trying to show me the old one, where I have the funds, crazy.
I have already tried this:

The account you are missing was a secondary account created under the Secret Recovery Phrase you currently have.
To check if that is the case, use https:// danfinlay. github. io/ mnemonic-account-generator/ to generate 10 to 100 accounts and check if the missing accounts are in that list.

I generated up to 10000 accounts and still the account I am looking for is not showing up, no one responds on Metamask, what I have done is because other members of this community have posted suggesting, but Metamask DOES NOT RESPOND.
