Create Metamask Wallet

Here's the exact process in creating your Metamask wallet:

Step #1: Install Metamask Extension

First, we start with a fresh and default MetaMask installation from the Chrome store. After downloading, installing, and initializing the extension, follow the Get Started guide. In there, you need to create a wallet, set a password, and store your secret backup phrase (this gives direct access to your funds, so make sure to store these in a secure place).

Step #2: Create a Wallet

After installing MetaMask, the setup will automatically open a new task with a welcome screen. Click Get Started to begin the setup process.

When prompted, you are given the option to import a wallet using a recovery seed phrase. For this exercise, set up a new wallet.

Step #3: Import Account (If you have an existing Metamask Wallet)

Instead of creating an account, you also have the option of importing any account into MetaMask you hold the private keys to. For this example, you'll import a development account.

On the import screen, select Private Key and paste in your keys.

You should end up with an imported Account 2 that looks like this:
