ConsenSys restates that MetaMask users can select not to utilize Infura nodes, however states that utilizing an alternative remote treatment call (RPC) might not constantly offer exceptional security or personal privacy.
“We are likewise making some updates to MetaMask to strengthen our dedication to user option. While Infura is the pre-loaded default RPC service provider when users set up MetaMask, often a user wants to designate an alternate third-party RPC or self-host their own node.
