The MetaMask dApp Browser

MetaMask’s mobile wallet includes a convenient and easy-to-use dApp browser for exploring dApps on your mobile device. To use Linea, simply switch to the netwerk and tap “Browser” at the bottom.

You can enter the platform’s link in the search bar to access the dApp, and connect your MetaMask wallet afterwards. Remember to stay on top of the apps you connect to as well as the permissions you grant them!

Final Thoughts

You can stay up to date with new dApps and transact to your heart’s desire! However, always keep in mind your account security and remain vigilant against potential breaches. Remember to verify links before using the dApp browser.
