Curiosity doesn’t kill the fox. It empowers it!
In line with your browser’s auto-update policy preference, your MetaMask extension would be updated automatically when we release it.
While most browsers encourage users to get updates automatically (as we would), where the default setting is to enable auto-update, you could enable or disable this policy on certain browsers. Here’s how:
Google Chrome doesn’t (explicitly) support users to disable extension auto-updates. Some users explore some workarounds here, but it’s rather intricate for laypersons. We would not encourage our users to explore it.
- On browser, type: “about:addons”
- Click “more” on MetaMask extension tile
- At the Automatic Updates field: Select “disable”, “enable” or “default” at your preference
While users are not able to disable auto-update, updates which require user’s permissions, would prompt users to approve it manually. (You could do the same by typing “opera://extensions”)
