My MetaMask wallet has multiple accounts which I did not create. I have no idea how they there. Is my MetaMask wallet compromised? Or is this normal that MetaMask creates new wallet addresses when needed for certain transactions or webpages? The unknown addresses are only visible in "Transfer between my accounts" which of course suggests that they are mine, but I cannot even access them or see the complete addresses. I have attached a screenshot below the above account that is blurred out is mine, the other accounts below the blue line are the ones unknown and unaccessible to me. I cannot edit/delete them. If any is familiar whit this please advice me on what to do. Thanks guysenter image description here

That definitely looks like a problem, have you given your priv key to anyone? left it on github?

Or, those are people you have sent eth or token to.

  • Nope I haven't given anyone my private key. I also haven't visited GitHub since creating the account so that can't be it either. These are people I have sent ETH or Token to??? Very strange shouldn't the addresses in this case be in the recent section as well? I have only sent it tokens to 4 addresses and those are not these. Strangely I am not missing any ETH or Tokens. But I will clear out the account to be safe. I was just wondering if this was normal. Thanks – REB May 26 '20 at 11:48

In that dialog Metamask is showing addresses that were used as recipients in previous transactions.

If you previously interacted with a dapp or contract they will appear there.

It seems bad that Metamask doesn't allow to see the full address.

  • Thank you Ismael you’re right that must be it since I mostly interacted with dapps and contracts. MetaMask should fix the not seeing the full address issue. It causes unnecessary panic. – REB May 29 '20 at 11:58
