Keystone is the only hardware wallet that is compatible with both the MetaMask extension and the MetaMask mobile app. It fully supports all EVM chains, as well as the main coins, tokens, and Dapps.
Firmware versions M-5.0 (Multi-Coin) or newer will allow you to use the MetaMask Extension (V10.8.0 or newer) with your Keystone and set the MetaMask extension as a watch-only wallet on your Keystone Essential or Pro.
A wallet generated by MetaMask has its recovery phrase online. This means that this recovery phrase has been connected to the network(internet).
Therefore, even if you import this recovery phrase created by MetaMask into Keystone (or any other hardware wallets) to continue managing your digital assets, this recovery phrase might already be at risk of being attacked by hackers.
In principle, we highly recommend creating a new recovery phrase (new wallet with a 24-word seed phrase) offline on a Keystone hardware wallet and then transferring your assets from your MetaMask wallet to the new one prior to using your Keystone to interact with MetaMask. This is the safest way to protect your assets.
1) If you are running any fork of MetaMask other than the standard production fork, disable it now.
2) Run the “MetaMask Extension”. Click on [Get Started] to begin setting up your MetaMask.
3) Choose to either create a new MetaMask wallet or import one. Here we will create a new Secret Recovery Phrase as a demonstration.
4) Set up your password. Please try to set a strong password to maximize the security of your account.
5) Keep your secret recovery phrase somewhere safe.
6) Now you have successfully set up your MetaMask. Feel free to browse around the MetaMask main page to familiarize yourself with it.
Please note that if your firmware version is M-9.10 or newer, the connection process on the Keystone hardware wallet has been improved.
