MetaMask will show you any known standard ERC 20 tokens you own, visible by clicking the menu icon on the top-left of the extension. However, sometimes your tokens won't be displayed automatically. We offer an easy step by step guide on how to add your tokens here:
If the token you're looking for isn't displayed, just press the "ADD TOKEN" button to add a new token. We maintain a partial list of ERC20 tokens here, which is made available through the "Search" functionality. If you know the name of your token, you can type it in the search bar and select the token from the menu, then click "NEXT."
The list isn't exhaustive, so if the token doesn't appear you can add it yourself by clicking on "Custom Token." You'll need the token's address, and you might also need to know the number of decimals that the token is tracked in (we will auto-fill decimals if the token makes that possible). You can find that information easily on the Etherscan token page. Enter it in the form, then scroll down to click "NEXT." On the next screen, confirm that you'd like to add the tokens to display on your account. (You can always remove them later.)
If you don't know the address of the token you're trying to track, ask the person who sent you the tokens. The Ethereum blockchain has countless small tokens, so it's impossible for us to know about all of them. If a person says you own tokens, but hasn't given you an address, they haven't really given you the tokens, because without the address, you don't have the information required to send or use those tokens yourself.
We had to remove our first token send page because it was not compatible with all tokens. We will add a new token send page as soon as we're confident we can keep our users safe. In the meanwhile, you can manage your MetaMask-held tokens through the interfaces listed below:
If you find our token list too simple, since MetaMask allows any website to interact with the blockchain, you can use any token managing UI you like to view and send tokens.
A few popular options are:
Just visit any of these sites with MetaMask installed, and you'll be able to manage your tokens freely. Remember that when transfering tokens, you still pay fees in Ether.
You can also view token balances on these block explorers:
