#CryptoSecurityAlert: See Fake Metamask on GoogleChrome Store – Avoid It!

February 5, 2018 News Scam Alerts Security 0

As crypto becomes lucrative daily it is also attracting back eggs and unethical hackers doing everything possible to rob others of their crypto money by all illegal means.

On Bitcointalk, there surfaced a post with link to a suspected fake version of the popular secured Ethereum wallet extention. Thus, we decided to dig deep and research further to confirm the genuinety of the post and its indeed turn out to be a fake version (our screenshots of the app live in Google chrome store explains things better below). That is while this is been published to our MyCDApp users and crypto community at large to stay on alert and check well before downloading or installing any App or Extention that will directly handle your cryptocurrencies and essential information like private key and seed words.

See the link to the detected fake Metamask: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/metamask/ajhghapnjiaimhegcipdpehnihdkljdj?utm_source=chrome-ntp-icon

Screenshots taken by MYCDApp team after thorough examination of the extension below:

Before you check the screenshots, not that we did circled our metamask extenstion already installed which exposed the fake one even more with things like the logo, logo colour, no rating, developer not official metamask account,the overall extention theme colour does not tally with the real Metamask yet it takes careful study and even a bit crypto awareness and observation to spot it and hope Metamask team will read this article and work on bringing that fake extension down to prevent their prospective users from falling victim.

Always download from the official Metalmask website at https://Metamask.io

We also acknowledge that most of our App users are new to crypto and just getting adapted. Thus, we also added screenshot of the real Metamask and you will notice that simply identified that we already installed that extension unlike the fake one claiming we should Add to Chrome even though its already in use.
