Auto transfer from an account configured in Metamask

Guys, today I transferred 1 MATIC to one of my accounts via MATIC mainnet using Metamask. To my surprise, this MATIC got transferred automatically to another account. The transaction is as follows,

Can someone explain if my wallet ( 0x4C70D50dAbbCc68C3a8B3Bb0d7330EE097752FdE ) got compromised. How should I secure it?

    1. Never share your Secret Recovery Phrase with any site or a person. MetaMask does not use Gmail or web forms. Do not enter your Secret Recover Phrase into a pop-up window, even if it looks like MetaMask. Verify links are legitimate. Scammers often use these tactics.

    2. Beware of fake websites. The official website for MetaMask is

    3. MetaMask Support will never DM you. This is a common tactic scammers use to try and get access to your wallet.

    4. If you need to reach Support: open MetaMask, then menu > Support. The ‘Start a Conversation’ button will start a chat, the bot asks a few questions to help route you to the correct team. You can also visit the Support site from the web:

    5. Do not click on suspicious links or files. This can lead to your device security being compromised.

    6. Do not “sync” or “validate” your wallet with any websites or forms. This is a scam. Never sync and share: QR Codes, Secret Recovery Phrase, private key, etc.

    7. Never call phone numbers, text Whatsapp numbers, DM on Discord, use WeChat or do video chat with people on this subreddit. MetaMask does not offer customer support in this manner. There is NO exclusive MetaMask Discord.

    8. We don’t ask for an email address to create a wallet. We can’t email you. We will never ask you to verify or upgrade/merge your wallet.–

    9. .MetaMask currently has no plans for an airdrop, regardless of any information you may have seen elsewhere. If you encounter anyone explaining the best method to maximize the size of a MetaMask-related ‘airdrop’ you might receive, they’re lying. In particular, be wary of scams (aimed at getting your Secret Recovery Phrase) that weaponize this topic.

    I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please contact the moderators of this subreddit if you have any questions or concerns.

  2. Well, you’re lucky. I woke up to see all my funds transferred from my wallet to an unknown wallet address. It was wiped clean. I don’t trust Meta Mask anymore.

    P.S. Always double check your input wallet address manually rather than copy pasting it without check. I once copy pasted and noticed the pasted wallet address would appear different after copying. Crypto is full of scam and no amount of diligence is enough.

  3. You gave away the SRP, and the scammer setup a “sweeper.”

    Don’t add anything to the account.
