How to remove networks

As they're essentially instructions that point MetaMask in the correct direction (towards an RPC endpoint), all the networks you add are removable. Note that preloaded networks like Ethereum mainnet and Linea can't be removed.

Follow the steps below for the platform you're using: 

Extension Mobile
  1. Click the network selector in the top left to bring up the list of networks you've previously added. Find the network you want to remove and click the cross that appears when you hover over it.

  2. Click 'Delete' on the menu that appears.

If you need to re-add a network, just follow the same steps you used to add it originally: via Chainlist or manually.

Please note that testnets will be displayed automatically and cannot be removed. If you don't want to see them, there's a toggle in settings that allows you to hide them. See here for instructions.
