Can I import Coinbase mobile to my MetaMask wallet?

Coinbase does not provide access to the private keys or JSON file needed for importing their wallet into MetaMask. This means that you can't import a Coinbase account to MetaMask through a private key.

Another way to put this is that Coinbase is a custodial wallet, wherein Coinbase itself retains your private keys. MetaMask is a non-custodial wallet.

Please refer to Coinbase' documentation: https://help.coinbase.com/en/coinbase/privacy-and-security/other/is-a-crypto-address-safe-to-display-publicly

On the other hand, you can import your MetaMask wallet to Coinbase mobile wallet by following these steps: 

  • Open Coinbase Wallet on your mobile device
  • Tap your settings at the bottom
  • Tap Connect to Coinbase
  • Follow out the remaining steps to connect your accounts

Please contact Coinbase support directly if you have any issues importing.
