ConsenSys has said that it gathers certain user data, including contact information and profile information, in addition to other user data. This information is collected alongside other user data. Though the company has not disclosed what information is collected by MetaMask itself, some of the same data that ConsenSys and Uniswap collect from users will be shared between both platforms.
The user’s financial data will no longer be gathered on MetaMask if they move to a different RPC on the platform. ConsenSys’s product lineup includes both the blockchain application developer Infura and the digital wallet MetaMask. Both of these products are supplied by ConsenSys.
Meanwhile, members of the Crypto Twitter community have expressed their dissatisfaction with the decision, which some have interpreted as a violation of a user’s privacy, one of the fundamental principles underlying the crypto sector. The concern is valid because, with the rising crimes in the space over the last few months, there is a growing need for security measures to be implemented, and cryptocurrency proponents are in favour of those measures.
