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