Reveal seed phrase


Apparently you can reveal your seed phrase again, if you have forgotten it, or you are not sure about the 12 words…

but when you open this in MetaMask with your computer online,

is this seed phrase not visible to potential hackers,…can anyone else online see those seed words, or only yourself…?

Hello @P1965, welcome to MetaMask community!

Only the person that has access to that respective wallet can view the seedphrase within MetaMask. So keep your Secret Recovery Phrase safe and be careful what websites, dapps and people you interact with.

I would say that if you share your screen while revealing the seed phrase, the one you share your screen with, will also be able to see your seed phrase. I guess it is possible for a hacker to see your screen using malware, RAT or some other tool on your computer.
