First of all, check the wallet address to which you are receiving tokens to see the current balance of your tokens. You do this by copying your wallet address and posting it into the block explorer corresponding to the network you're on--Etherscan for Ethereum mainnet, Arbiscan for Arbitrum, etc. For detailed instructions, see here.
If your MetaMask Extension is displaying the incorrect or inaccurate balance for ETH or other tokens, try the steps below one by one until you see your balance correctly.
Before proceeding, make sure that you have your Secret Recovery Phrase backed up in a safe place.
- Close down your browser where you have the MetaMask extension installed and open it again.
- Switch to a different network and back again. To do this, click on your current network at the top of the app. Select a different network, and then switch back to your original network again.
- Make sure you're not experiencing a browser permissions issue.
- Install MetaMask using another supported browser (Firefox, Chrome, Brave, Edge) from our official website https://metamask.io , and then try restoring your wallet using the 12-word Secret Recovery Phrase in case the issue is only present in the browser you are currently using.
Once you've verified on Etherscan that the amount of tokens being displayed in MetaMask Mobile is incorrect, try the following:deleting the network and then re-adding it.
If the token in question is ETH, then make sure that your Secret Recovery Phrase is backed up in a safe place, and reinstall the app.
