Add a network using Chainlist (Extension or Mobile)

If you want to add networks to MetaMask, accessing Chainlist is one of the easiest ways to do it.

See the instructions below for a guide.

Extension Mobile
  1. Head to the Chainlist site at chainlist.wtf.

  2. Firstly, you'll need to connect your wallet to the site. Select 'Connect wallet' in the top right to do so.

    When successful, your wallet address will replace the 'Connect wallet' button:

  3. Now use the search bar to find the network you want to connect to. Once you've found it, click the button 'Add Chain'.

  4. MetaMask itself will now spring into action, and will present you with an approval menu. Click 'Approve' to proceed.

  5. This will be followed by a menu asking you whether you want to switch to the new network immediately. Confirm or reject this depending on your needs; either way, the new network will be added. 

For details on how to add custom networks by inputting their details manually, see our article on the topic. 

Please note we do not maintain the network information on Chainlist. Make sure the network details are accurate before adding them.
