To get any token on your Metamask wallet on the extension or mobile app, you have to either manually add the token to your wallet using its contract address or via the Metamask automatic detection feature which works for tokens on the Ethereum network.

To solve this issue, you can remove these tokens from your Metamask wallet, and just like adding a token to your Metamask wallet, removing a token from Metamask is a relatively easy process.

In this guide, you will learn how to remove a token from Metamask. The article includes guides on how to remove tokens from the Metamask extension and mobile app.

If you have a bunch of tokens added to your Metamask wallet that you don’t need any longer, you can simply remove them. 

Removing a token from Metamask only hides the token from the list of available balances on your wallet and it doesn’t actually “delete” the token’s balance from your wallet. 

If want to view the token again, you can re-add the token to your wallet using its contract address.

To remove a token from Metamask, simply select the token from the list of tokens that have already been added to your wallet. After that, click the 3-dot menu icon and select Token details and click Hide token on the next page.

Below is a step-by-step guide with screenshots showing how to remove tokens on Metamask.

Step 1: Open the Metamask app and unlock your wallet.

Open the Metamask mobile app on your phone by tapping on the Metamask app logo then unlock your wallet using your pin code.
