To track the progress of crypto assets stored on your Metamask wallet with Cointracker, you need to add the wallet manually on the Cointracker Wallets page.
The guide below will show you how to connect your Metamask wallet to Cointracker easily.
Step 1: Launch the Metamask extension (or mobile app) and unlock your wallet.
Launch the Metamask extension by clicking on the Metamask icon in the extensions area in the top right corner of your browser’s homepage.
Once Metamask is launched, enter your account password to unlock the wallet.
If you use the Metamask mobile app for either iOS or Android, launch the app by tapping on the Metamask app icon on the app tray/app center.
Once the app is launched, either enter your password or unlock it with your biometric details (fingerprint for Android and faceID for iOS).
Step 2: Click on the vertical 3-dot icon and select [Account Details].
On the Metamask extension, click on the vertical 3-dot icon which is located at the top right corner of the page.
Next, select [Account Details] from the pop-up menu items to reveal the details of your Metamask wallet.
Step 3: Click on the Copy icon to copy your wallet address.
On the account details pop-up dialog, click on the Copy icon to copy your wallet address.
To get your wallet address on the Metamask mobile app, select [Recieve] on the homepage and tap on [Copy] to copy the address to clipboard.
Step 4: Go to the Cointracker website and log into your account.
Open the Cointracker website on a browser on your device and login into your account using your username and password.
If you don’t have an account on Cointracker, you can create a free account by clicking here.
Step 5: Click on [Add Wallet].
On the Cointracker dashboard, click on [Add Wallet] to add a new wallet to your account.
Step 6: Select “Public Address” as Wallet Type.
Next, select “Public Address” as the wallet type as seen below.
Since Metamask is a non-custodial crypto wallet, there is no provision for an API so Cointracker uses your wallet address (which is also known as the public key of your wallet) to track all transactions coming in or out of your wallet.
Step 7: Select “ETH” as the crypto to track.
Select ETH in the “Choose your cryptocurrency” section. If you wish to track other coins on your Metamask wallet which is not ETH or ERC-20 token (eg Polygon, Solana, and more), select the coin from the list.
Cointracker currently supports only a handful of coins and tokens so if you don’t find the crypto you want to track on the list provided, it is probably not supported by Cointracker.
Step 8: Finally, paste your Metmask wallet address and click on [Add Wallet].
Finally, paste the wallet address you copied earlier from Metamask in the “Address” field and click on [Add Wallet] to add the Metamask wallet to your Cointracker account.
Can I Track NFTs On Metamask With Cointracker?
Yes, in addition to tracking the progress and taxes associated with your crypto portfolio, you can also track non-fungible tokens (NFT) on your wallet and their associated taxes.

Is It Safe To Add My Wallet To CoinTracker?
Cointracker will never request your Metamask recovery phrase, or the username and password of your accounts on centralized crypto exchanges so Yes, it is safe to add your wallet to Cointracker.

Adding a Metamask wallet to Cointracker is as easy as pasting your wallet address in the correct field and allowing the platform to sync with the blockchain to retrieve your transactions.
Since Cointracker does not request your wallet’s 12-word recovery phrase or other sensitive information like the login details for your account(s) on any crypto exchange, adding your wallet to Cointracker is safe and comes with very little to no risks at all.
