Wrong MetaMask add when I copy

Hi I have a problem. When I try to copy my metamask add from the metamask extension and pasted it’s not copying my address but it’s showing someones address. Is my acct hacked or what?

Hello @KlaasxJager, welcome to the community.

That sounds like the behavior of a clipboard hack. But its hard to be certain without more detail:

A clipper might have affected your clipboard and it’s swapping your address. Be careful and pay close attention to the address you have saved in your pc .

I will file a ticket now. Thank you.

The MM I am using in my PC which has no assets because it’s new but my assets from NFT games not yet transferred in my MM yet. Is it still safe?

@KlaasxJager , don’t click any links . Wait for an official member to assist you properly. Ignore @program .

复制粘贴后一定要记得查看粘贴的内容是否有变动,我之前就出现过这样的情况,给电脑杀毒

Auto KMS/KMS pico is a tool used to remove the activation from pirated copies of windows.

I’d start with a install of windows you are certain is clean. If the OS itself is compromised, no anti-virus or malware removal tools will be able to deal with that.
