One Account for All Ethereum Networks

This section describes one MetaMask account for the main Ethereum network and other test networks.

When you create an account with the MetaMask extension on Chrome, the same account address can be used on the main Ethereum network and other test networks.

You can verify this with these steps:

1. Click the MetaMask icon near the top right corner of the browser window.

2. Select the "Main Network" in the dropdown list on the top.

3. Select "Copy Address to clipboard" from the "..." menu.

4. Paste the account address to an editor:

0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c

5. Select the "Ropsten Test Net" in the dropdown list on the top.

3. Select "Copy Address to clipboard" from the "..." menu.

4. Paste the account address to an editor. You will the account address is the same for both Ethereum networks:

0xef6Ea9F8Bd78ac42Fb2617ba90846D5785BB320c

This is ok, because the account address is just a public key. If you received Ether funds to the same address from both networks, MetaMask can use the same private key to spend them.
