Reading time: < 1 minute

The developers of non-custodial crypto wallet MetaMask have just warned users about phishing attacks through a third-party email service.

They have warned:

“MetaMask does not collect KYC information and will never email you about your account! NEVER enter your recovery passphrase on a website. If you receive an email from MetaMask, Namecheap, or anyone else, please ignore it and do not click on the link.”

Email service provider Namecheap has confirmed that malicious messages have been sent through its service. According to the project, email systems were not hacked and user data was not affected.

The company’s teams are continuing to investigate the incident and are warning users to double-check links from MetaMask or Namecheap.

Namecheap developers have noted that they cannot yet prevent the sending of fraudulent emails.
