Mint a Domain to MetaMask Mobile App

If you created your account using the Continue with Google option, you will not be able to sign into the account on the dApp browser of MetaMask (the built-in browser) since Google is a centralized platform.

Instead, you will need to reset the password of the account by following this link and then select the Continue with Email option as you're logging in.

Alternatively, if your MetaMask wallet is already connected to your account you can sign in using the Connect Wallet option - keep in mind that this only works if you previously connected the wallet to your UD account on a desktop browser, if you haven't done so this will create a new UD account using your wallet address.
