Now, you will need a strong password with an original combination of numbers, letters, and symbols. Then, click on Create. When MetaMask asks you, you will need this password.
A seed phrase is your backup plan! Create it using 12 words; you will need it to recover your account if you delete MetaMask from your browser. Thanks to the seed phrase, you will be able to access your account from a new computer anywhere.
