How to Log Out of Metamask

Metamask is a popular browser extension and mobile app that allows users to interact with various blockchain networks, such as Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain. Metamask stores your private keys and secret recovery phrase on your local device, so you can access your crypto wallets and perform transactions on the web.

However, for security reasons, you may want to log out of Metamask when you are not using it. Logging out of Metamask means locking the application, so that you will have to re-enter your password or biometrics to log back in.

I will also share some tips on how to set an auto-lock timer and add a hardware wallet for extra security.
