Google has restored MetaMask’s Android app

Yogita Khatri

After suspending MetaMask's Android app last week, Google has now restored it.

MetaMask announced the news on Sunday, saying that Google took the decision after “careful consideration.”

Last week, Google suspended MetaMask’s app, citing its policy of banning cryptocurrency mining apps from its Android store. MetaMask does not offer mining services; it is a browser extension that allows users to run Ethereum decentralized applications (dapps).

MetaMask had also filed an appeal, which Google rejected at the time. As the app has now been restored, MetaMask said the experience has made it “more resilient” and “stronger.”

MetaMask has an estimated 264,000 monthly active users. The app has been impersonated several times in the past, attempting to retrieve victims' crypto-related credentials.
