MetaMask can show you any known standard ERC 20 tokens you own, they will all list under the Assets tab. Although, sometimes your tokens will not display automatically (due to not being added to our list here). For those tokens, we offer an easy step by step guide below on how to add it to your MetaMask.
How to Add a Token
If the token you're looking for isn't displayed automatically, just scroll down in Assets and press the ADD TOKEN button to add a new token, for example:
The list isn't exhaustive, so if the token doesn't appear you can add it yourself by clicking the Custom Token tab in the Add Tokens view(see screenshot below).
You would need the token's contract address, and you might also need to know the number of decimals that the token is tracked in(we usually auto-fill decimals if the token contract makes that possible). You can find that information on the Etherscan token page. Enter it in the form, then scroll down to click NEXT. On the next screen, confirm that you'd like to add the tokens to display on your account. You can always remove the token later by clicking on it and pressing Hide(Token Name):
If you don't know the address of the token you are trying to track, ask the person who sent you the tokens. The Ethereum blockchain has countless small tokens, so it's impossible for us to know all of them. If a person says you own tokens but hasn't given you an address, they haven't really given you the tokens, because, without the address, you don't have the information required to send or use those tokens yourself.
Note: We had to remove our first token send page because it was not compatible with all tokens. We will add a new token send page as soon as we're confident we can keep our users safe.
In case you find our token list too limited you can manage your MetaMask-held tokens via the interfaces listed below. In addition, MetaMask allows any website to interact with the blockchain, you can use any token managing UI you like to view and send tokens.
A few popular options are:
Just visit any of these sites with MetaMask installed, and you'll be able to manage your tokens freely. Remember that when transferring tokens, you still pay fees in ETH.
You can also view token balances on these block explorers:
