We all know that Metamask is a great extension for Chrome and Firefox, but does it work on Safari too?
I decided to do some research and find out.
Read on to learn what I discovered.
Does Metamask Extension Works On Safari?
As of February 2022, the Metamask Extension does NOT work on Safari. Currently the extension is only supported on Chrome, Firefox, Brave and Edge browsers.
Another way to access your account through an Apple device is to download the iOS version on your mobile device.
How To Add Metamask App To iPhone?
Since you can’t add the Metamask extension to Safari, lets then do it to iPhone.
To link your MetaMask wallet with your iPhone you need to use the “MetaMask Mobile Sync” feature.
Follow this steps to sync your Metamask wallet to iPhone:
- Install the MetaMask app from MetaMask.io.
- Open the MetaMask mobile app on your phone and tap on “Sync or Import”
- Tap on “Scan QR code”.
- Access your MetaMask account
- Find the QR Code on: Settings > Advanced > Sync with Mobile
- Scan the QR Code with the MetaMask app you just installed.
Now you should have synced your information from your Metamask extension to your iPhone. Dont worry, you can use your Metamask wallet in Multiple devices.
Alternatives For Metamask Extension On Safari
The best option you have to use the Metamask Extension while they add support on Safari is to install Chrome on your Apple computer and add the Metamask Chrome Extension to it.
Eventually, if Metamask releases the extension for Safari you can add it there too and delete Chrome.
If you don’t like Google Services or just Chrome then check out the other browsers where the extension works:
The Firefox browser is known for its high level of privacy and it supports extensions. It is available on Apple devices.
So if you install the Metamask extension on Firefox, your accounts will be available to use without problems!
Brave browser is a free and open-source web browser that focuses on simplicity, performance, and privacy.
Brave browser has a built-in adblocker and is available for download on Apple devices.
Edge is the newest Microsoft browser as they decided to move on from Internet Explorer.
The Edge browser is known for its extremely fast loading time and it’s especially recommended for people who like to use extensions.
As you can see, if you are a Safari user wondering, does Metamask Extension works on Safari? The answer is that adding Metamask to it is not an option.
If they eventually release the extension for Safari devices, you will be able to use it there too.
Until then, the best solution will be to install any of the other supported browsers and add the Extension to it.
