ConsenSys reveals it collects IP addresses of MetaMask users
ConsenSys, a leading Ethereum software developer, has revealed it collects user data from customers of its crypto wallet MetaMask.
While Infura is the default RPC provider on MetaMask, ConsenSys says users can use their own node or opt for third party RPC providers. In this case, crypto users unhappy with the MetaMask move could look to platforms like Ankr and Alchemy.
