Your MetaMask extension will be automatically updated when we release updates--if that's what you want, and if that's what you set your browser to do.
While most browsers encourage users to get updates automatically (as do we), users can enable or disable auto-updates on some 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
