MetaMask addresses privacy concerns with new features for enhanced control By Cointelegraph

Web3 wallet app MetaMask has introduced a number of new features aimed at enhancing privacy and giving users more control, according to a March 14 blog post by the developer. The new features come after MetaMask had previously been criticized for allegedly intruding on users’ privacy.

Previously, MetaMask used its Infura RPC (NYSE:) node to connect to automatically, whenever a user first set up the wallet. Although the user could change the settings later, this still meant that the user’s public address was transmitted to Infura before they had a chance to change their node, according to a report from Ethereum node operator Chase Wright.
