Vault Decrypt - Some Tips

So besides not giving anyone access to your passwords or seed phrase, there are several things you should know about Metamask in case you did not keep a copy of your seed phrase.

If you simply created a new wallet with a new pass phrase, the information about your vault data will still be available for a while for the older addresses, just for a while, so better backup that file before closing the session and so on). Just use the Vault Decrypt and the passwords you employed. It is strongly recommended using Vault Decrypt in a local computer not connected to the Internet to be safe.

In some cases, if the Chrome Plugin is uninstalled and you did not save a copy of the folder that contains the logs, you may have lost all hope (unless you have a restore point before the changes and you copy that data of the plugin folder, usually something like this in Windows:

"C:\Users\_xxx_Replace_With_User_Profile_xxx_\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Local Extension Settings\nkbihfbeogaeaoehlefnkodbefgpgknn"

Other browsers, like Brave are, in my opinion less reliable but the folder structure is the same for plugins like Chrome.

Remember to always keep your seed phrase safe or at least the private key of the address you use and care about.

One more thing, don’t trust people who tell you that they can help you, if it is doable you can do it alone most of the time, if you can not do it, it means there are no chances of recovery (and that is the beauty of Cryptography applied to Finances, only the holder of the private keys controls the wealth.

Lost my seed key have password but scared to delete app on iPhone with no seed key cant get in data corruption

Looks like my coins are gone :sob:

If you have access to your address in Metamask in your iPhone or other devices you can “Reveal Secret Recovery Phrase” if it is the main account, if it was imported, just go to “show private key” in Security and Privacy and nothing is lost. Make a good copy of that private key and funds will be safe for ever as long as no one else has access to that private key.

Had a message saying data corruption now will not let me log in with passwords now ask me to download again and use pass key

Do not do anything else. Try to make a copy of the raw data that is inside your iPhone and try with that data in a computer to locate your Vault data (it is a JSON file) and decrypt it with your password. The less you do, the better.
