MetaMask update solved the problem with merging accounts

MetaMask developers in the latest update excluded the automatic merging of all accounts when a non-custodial wallet interacts with dapps.

Now, when connecting to decentralized applications, accounts will be separated – they will be maintained in separate browser tabs.

“For example, you will be able to use account #1 as a public account and associated with your ENS, while account #2 will be dedicated to DeFi activity that you want to keep private. Now they will not be connected to each other,” the blog says.

The update provided options to limit the amount of data sent to third-party services, as well as change RPC-provider instead of default Infura. The latter is related to ConsenSys, which also owns MetaMask.

On November 24, 2022, ConsenSys announced an update to the privacy policy, which caused a flurry of criticism from the community. Users indicated a decrease in their privacy and an increase in the risks of identifying individuals for law enforcement actions.

On December 6, in response to community concerns, the company clarified that it will reduce the retention period for collected IP identifiers and wallet addresses to seven days.

In February 2023, ConsenSys added privacy settings for the popular MetaMask non-custodial wallet to a browser extension to ease the process of switching RPC providers.
