How do I install a MetaMask Snap?

No more extra components; streamlining deployment.

MetaMask offers a directory of verified Snaps (like an app store) to ensure a safe environment for installing a Snap. The initial launch of the directory requires that all Snaps pass compliance and full auditing procedures.

The process for installing a Snap does not require you to install an additional browser extension; instead, the Snap is added to your existing MetaMask extension. This creates a much safer environment for your crypto adding additional features as your browse web3, DeFi & NFTs.

HOWTO: Update MetaMask to 11.0.0

A prerequisite to using MetaMask Snaps is to be using 11.0.0 or greater. Please follow our extension update guide for more information.

HOWTO: Install a MetaMask Snap
