If you are new to MetaMask, you might be looking forward to learning new techniques for using it. Because, sometimes, due to a lack of knowledge, you may not be able to achieve your goals or do some silly mistakes.

And I know, nobody would ever want to mess up things that are related to crypto assets. Now, I would like to shift our focus toward the focal point of this article- "how to sign into MetaMask using the seed phrase?"

Well, this question is making rounds on the internet because many users are looking for different ways to gain access to their accounts. Although, one can easily undergo MetaMask sign in with the password. But, sometimes, the process may not go as we expect it to.

Hence, in that scenario, we need to look for other options that could help us eliminate the risk of losing access to our wallets/accounts. Therefore, to address this particular concern of the users, I am going to shed some light on the process that you would need to follow for MetaMask sign in with seed phrase.

Here's what you need to do 

 Before you start implementing the steps, you need to be ready with the seed phrase details. If you believe you have the correct secret recovery phrase with you, then you can start implementing the steps that are listed below:

  1. Your first step in this process is opening the MetaMask extension or the app
  2. If you have been locked out of your wallet, you'll immediately see the MetaMask sign in screen
  3. On the screen, you'll see a blank space for the password
  4. Since you don't want to use the password, take a look at the password field
  5. Yes, that's where you'd find the "Import Using secret recovery phrase" option
  6. Just, click/tap on this option to proceed
  7. Now, enter your secret recovery phrase in the following screen
  8. Set up a new password and confirm it in the allotted spaces

That's all!!!

From now onwards, you will need to use the same password for the MetaMask sign in that you have created just now. On the other hand, if you are already logged in and wish to access one of the accounts of your MetaMask wallet, then you simply need to select the "Import" option for that account, select "JSON File" from the given drop, and then provide its seed phrase to access that particular account.

Summing it up: 

To summarize this article, we can say that, until you have access to the secret recovery phrase of your wallet, you can access your MetaMask wallet from anywhere using any device even though you could not recall the MetaMask sign in password.

As you might already know, MetaMask contains highly sensitive pieces of information, therefore, you need to make sure that you do not reveal your secret recovery phrase details and MetaMask sign in password to anyone. This will help you ensure the top-notch security of your MetaMask wallet.
