How to use Phantom Extension Alongside Other Crypto Wallets

  • Updated

Phantom multi-chain beta uses the same dapp connect option as MetaMask.  If you use Phantom and MetaMask side by side on the same browser and profile, you will see the last installed extension become the default wallet.  If you do not want this to happen you can:

  • Temporarily disable one wallet extension while using the other
  • Reinstall Phantom and re-import your Phantom secret recovery phrase on a different browser
  • Reinstall Phantom and re-import your Phantom secret recovery phrase on a different chrome profile

 

Temporarily Disable a Wallet Extension

Open Chrome extension settings, find the extension wallet you want to temporarily disable, then click the toggle next to it. 

 

Move Phantom to a Different Browser

Go to Phantom settings > security & privacy > show recovery phrase

Install Phantom extension on a different browser such as MS Edge, Brave, or Firefox

Select "I already have a wallet" and import your Phantom secret recovery phrase

 

Move Phantom to a new Chrome Profile
