How to Create Metamask.io Account
Metamask wallet is available as Browser Extension in Chrome, Brave, FireFox, and Microsoft Edge. Metamask is also available in iOS and Android phone App. I was actually having a problem with 2 browser’s Chrome and Brave when I try to install it, for some reason I haven’t known yet, So I decided to Install in Edge and it works well.
Go ahead in https://metamask.io if you want to download their extension browser and if you don’t have one.

Your Secret Back-up Phrase
Metamask will generate a random seed phrase for you. The seed phrase is the master key of your wallet. You should not lose it, and I suggest not to keep a copy on your computer. If you can able to memorize them, do it. But it is highly recommended to write it on a piece of paper that you and the most trusted person in your household know. Just in case if something might happen to you.
After successfully confirming your account with the Seed Phrase, you can now use your Metamask.io account.
