How to Import Your Wallet from Metamask to Trust Wallet
In this guide, we'll explain the process of importing your MetaMask wallet into Trust Wallet. Because MetaMask is a self-custody wallet built to support the open Web3 ecosystem, it allows you import your wallet’s address directly into Trust Wallet anytime you want. That means you can use Trust Wallet to view and manage the same assets, while taking advantage of extensive features the Trust ecosystem has to offer.
So below, we cover the necessary steps to import your wallet, describe some Trust Wallet features, and answer common questions about importing wallets in our FAQ section. Let's get started!

Before you import your MetaMask into Trust Wallet, you’ll need to ensure you have Trust Wallet installed on your mobile device or computer. Trust Wallet is available as a mobile app as well as the Trust Wallet Chrome Extension.
Step 1: Install Trust Wallet

- Select the menu icon.
- Choose the “Security & Privacy” option.

- Follow the instructions to get your secret recovery phrase and then copy it to your clipboard or write it down on a piece of paper for the next step.
Note: Remember to never share your secret phrase with anyone.
Step 3: Import your MetaMask to your Trust Wallet
- Open Trust Wallet and choose “I already have a wallet”.
- Choose “Restore with secret phrase”.
- Select “Multi-Coin Wallet” if you want to be able to manage all your crypto assets with one wallet.
- Paste in your secret phrase or type it in the same order that you have it written down, then select “Import”.
From there, simply follow the instructions to start using your Trust Wallet and you’ll see your imported balances.
And that’s it. Now your MetaMask is imported into your Trust Wallet.
