Set up Metamask for testnets

Fred Snyder,  

Metamask is a wallet from Consensys that can connect to an Ethereum test net and is very easy to set up. We’ll use the Görli test net for this guide.

Other wallets may also work; the only requirement is the ability to send and receive on the Görli (or other) test net(s).

Only the Main account will restore when creating a wallet from your backup phrase. You must manually create a backup if you’ve created an extra account.

Imported accounts will not be associated with your originally created MetaMask account Secret Recovery Phrase. Learn more about imported accounts .
