const accounts = await web3.eth.getAccounts()
    //sets the state of the account as a part of the constructor.

Id used the above code to display the account information of the user. I have tried with the Main Ethereum network and Ganache, using metamask. Unfortunately, it states the account is undefined. Please help.

  • Are you sure that metamask is connected to Ganache? How have you started Ganache? Jul 29 '19 at 13:47
  • @goodvibration ya it is. I connected using the local rpc of Ganache

  • It however seems to be an issue with metamask. When I provide the rpc of ganache it gives out the address. Can you pls help me out with that?

You need to execute ethereum.enable() first, see: https://metamask.github.io/metamask-docs/Advanced_Concepts/Provider_API

Alternatively you could disable the privacy mode of metamask (in settings / Security & Privacy) See https://medium.com/metamask/introducing-privacy-mode-42549d4870fa
