Previously, when users using MetaMask connected to blockchain applications, MetaMask would link all accounts together even if the user didn’t want to. Now, according to the announcement posted on March 14, the wallet application will begin to separate these accounts by categories and even presented in separate tabs.

MetaMask explains:

“For example, you might want to use Account 1 as a ‘public’ account linked to your ENS, while using Account 2 for DeFi activities that you want to keep private. Now you can do it on MetaMask because the accounts are not linked.”

This new development by MetaMask is one of the efforts to upgrade the wallet user experience and more importantly, focus on investor privacy and security.

In addition, MetaMask also notes that users can choose any RPC provider – the service used to connect to the blockchain – instead of using Infura by default, which belongs to the same parent company ConenSys.
