In a decentralized web, you always need a crypto wallet to connect with dApps.
MetaMask is one of the most popular crypto wallets available. It is known for its ease of use and privacy.
MetaMask acts as a gateway to exploring Ethereum-based blockchain applications.
To use any dApps, such as Uniswap, Aave, 1inch, OpenSea, etc., you need to establish a connection with a crypto wallet like MetaMask.
Once you have established a connection, you can lend, borrow, or swap tokens based on the function of that particular dApp.
Disconnecting MetaMask from dApps holds the same importance as like connecting them.
However, most of the users fail to disconnect their MetaMask wallet from the dApps since it is not a straightforward task as most of the dApp website does not have the Disconnect button.
Connecting to a dApp only allows that website to see your MetaMask wallet address and balance, and send transaction approval requests. There is no other blockchain interaction possible without your permission.
However, it is safe to disconnect MetaMask from scam websites since some smart contracts used by dApps have full control over your MetaMask wallet with no authoritative action needed from your side.
To view and disconnect Connected Sites on MetaMask, you need to click the three vertical dots.
Then, click on “Connected Sites”.
Lastly, click on “Disconnect”.
