How to troubleshoot Snap issues

MetaMask Snaps allows you to bring your MetaMask experience to the next level, but it can be annoying if something happens to go wrong. If you're facing challenges with the MetaMask Snaps platform or specific Snaps, don't fret! This guide is here to assist you in troubleshooting problems relating to MetaMask Snaps.


The MetaMask Snaps platform refers to the underlying framework that enables the integration of third-party applications within MetaMask. Individual Snaps are the specific applications that can be installed to extend MetaMask's functionality.

It's essential to distinguish between issues with the MetaMask Snaps platform itself, which might impact multiple or all of your installed Snaps, and problems specific to an individual Snap.
