Note : This option makes XDEFI your default browser wallet when you interact with web applications.

By turning this option ON, XDEFI will take priority over wallet extensions (e.g. MetaMask) you may have installed in your browser when connecting to web applications? This option is easily accessible from the wallet menu in case you change your mind!

I’ve imported my MetaMask seed phrase into XDEFI, but all my balances are at 0; I have no assets in the “Owned” tab and the Ethereum public deposit address(es) generated after the import aren’t the same. What is the problem?

This can occur for two reasons:

1. You have not imported the correct seed phrase (the one of your current MetaMask wallet) but another seed phrase.

2. You have imported the correct seed phrase, but the account(s) you have in your MetaMask wallet have been manually imported via private key(s) and are not linked to your MetaMask wallet’s seed phrase & private key‌‌.
