In order to manually add any MetaMask-supported token which is not displaying on your account yet, you need to take a few steps mentioned below.

MetaMask is a well-known reliable wallet which is used to hold and manage ETH-based tokens. It allows you to not only hold the displayed tokens of the ETH network, but you can also manage the tokens of other networks which are not displayed on your account.

In this read, I’ll elaborate on a few methods to add tokens, so go through the read and learn how to do display unlisted tokens on MetaMask.

Display tokens using an enhanced token detection feature

As I have mentioned earlier, MetaMask shows only standard ERC-20 tokens on your account. So, in order to display unlisted tokens, you can enable the auto-detection feature but do remember that the enhanced token detections feature only works with the networks:

  • Ethereum Mainnet
  • Avalanche
  • BNB Smart Chain
  • Polygon

Simple steps to enable auto token detection:

  1. Make sure you have already created your wallet and then perform the login with MetaMask Wallet.
  2. Hit on the “Accounts” identicon and press the Settings” option further.
  3. Locate the “Security Privacy” button to proceed further.
  4. Next, scroll down the page and look for “Autodetect tokens”.
  5. Turn on the toggle and this will enable the display of valid but unlisted ERC-2o-based tokens.

Add the token manually on the MetaMask

In order to manually add any MetaMask-supported token which is not displaying on your account yet, you need to take a few steps mentioned below.

  1. First, perform the login with MetaMask Wallet and look at the text “Don’t see your token?" located beneath.
  2. Hit on the “Import tokens” link to proceed and search for your preferred token in the search field.
  3. Pick up the token that you want to display from the search field.
  4. Press “Next” and hit the “Import tokens” further.
