please help me all my tokens are gone in metamask i uninstalled the metamask chrome extension so that i can create a new metamask wallet then when i tried to login into my first old metamask wallet it did not recognize my password so i added my seedphrase in metamask and created a new password and all my coins are gone what do i do now
i had different wallets i dont recall the name of the wallets and i think metamask help article is saying you have to know the name of the wallet to readd the account and i dont recall the name of the wallet and some wallet addresses i do have
Hey @Superstar, please make sure that you have typed the correct Secret Recovery Phrase for the correct wallet address you are trying to access. The wallet address you are trying to access could have also been an imported or hardware account.
yes i did type the correct correct Secret Recovery Phrase and some coins came up in the default metamask address but I don’t recall the names of the wallet accounts so how can I get my other wallet accounts to show up when I don’t recall the names of it does that mean if I don’t know the names I named the wallet accounts then coins are gone forever?
i added new accounts i renamed it what i thought the name was and nothing came up I have my wallet address but its not in my metamask account I added 13 new accounts hoping my old accounts start reappearing and only 2 of my old account reappeared the rest did not what should I do
they were not imported accounts they were accounts I created inside metamask that I renamed does that mean if I don’t know the name of the wallet then the coins are lost forever from reading the help article it looks like I need to know the name of the wallet I created inside metamask I don’t recall the name I only have the wallet address what should I do
yes i did and the coins dont show up and its a different wallet address I only remembered one wallet name and when I renamed the wallet then one coin came up that’s why I thought I have to know the wallet name and the help article made it sound you have to know the wallet name I only remembered one wallet name and now I have 13 accounts because I was guessing what the names might be and I cant delete it and the help article said to add it in order what do I do
i dont understand how to use that link I have some of the account wallet addresses they are not showing up in metamask are you sure I don’t need to know the wallet name the help article said different please help
Yes, if the wallet address you are trying to access was an imported account, you will need the private key to import them again. If the Secret Recovery Phrase you have used does not show the wallet address you are trying to access, along with any additional accounts you created, it was likely an imported account.
You can follow the instructions on the page to use the account generator. As stated, it would be best to use it on a safe computer that is not connected to the internet.
