Import your seed wallet to Metamask

In this section, we'll go through how to import the seed wallet into the Metamask wallet.

Log in to your Metamask wallet

The first step is to open up the Metamask browser extension and to log in. If you're using Chrome you should be able to open Metamask by clicking on the fox icon located to the right of your address bar (see the image below).

If you can't see it, click here. This will open up an interface to your Ethereum wallet.

Click on the circle in the top right.

You should see a black drop down menu appear (see image below).

Click on the Log out button in the top right of this menu.

You'll be taken to a Welcome Back page.

Importing the 12 words phrase will allow you to use Metamask with your wallet.

Click on Import using account seed phrase. Metamask should now open up in a new tab with a heading Restore your account with Seed Phrase. Import the unique phrase you were given when setting up your account.

Note that your mnemonic phrase won't be the same as mine. So make sure you copy yours from your terminal, and not from this blog.

Create a new password

Once you copied the 12 word seed phrase, paste it into the wallet seed text box, and create a new password (see image below).

Click on the Restore button at the bottom of the page.

The imported account will appear in the My account list when clicking on the top right circle.

You've now connected Metamask to an Ethereum account.
