Is it safe to use the 12 word seed phrase from Coinbase Wallet...for MetaMask? I heard its not safe. When I tried it...it showed my coinbase balance. For MetaMask do you only need to use a MetaMask created wallet for existing user? Thank you.

I'm pretty sure CB is a Metamask skin.

I heard its not safe.

You are exposing your private key more than necessary

When I tried it...it showed my coinbase balance.
