Is this possible? I have a MetaMask wallet working fine. A friend w/o computer - can I set him up with MetaMask on my system - but obviously not my account. If so, how?

If you don't want the other user potentially having access to your account:

You could:

  • Setup another user on the OS
  • Use a separate chrome profile within the same browser
  • Use a separate browser, such as Firefox
  • Or anything similar.

If you don't mind the other user potentially having access to your account:

In Metamask, click the colourful circle in the top right of the UI, and there will be a dropdown that says "Create account".

  • I don't want them to have access to my account. Doing that, they would have access to buy and send.

  • You could set up a new google chrome profile for them if you wanted? Then I believe Metamask should act independently of yours, other than that you could make another OS user (like a Windows account) for them and install chrome / Metamask fresh.

  • This is what I did. Also firefox works as its separate from chrome - so can also set up a separate MetaMask wallet there. Thanks. Put your comment answer in an "answer" and I will set it as the chosen one.
