How to Import Your Wallet Address From TrustWallet to MetaMask

Sometimes, you will run into situations where you will need to go through something other than TrustWallet for a transaction.  This is where MetaMask comes in.  MetaMask acts as a second access point to your TrustWallet address.   You are not creating a new wallet.  You are giving yourself another way to interact with your existing TrustWallet.

In this guide, you will be dealing with your secret recovery phrase from TrustWallet.  This phrase is never to be given to someone claiming to want to help you.  This phrase is used to recover an account in a situation where the device it is stored on is lost or broken and should be kept confidential at all times.  MetaMask is one of the few valid places where it is safe to do so.

Finding Secret Recovery Phrase
