Simple summary

This proposal describes a way for DOM environments to expose user accounts in a way that requires user approval.


The previous generation of Ethereum-enabled DOM environments follows a pattern of injecting a provider populated with accounts without user consent. This puts users of such environments at risk because malicious websites can use these accounts to view detailed account information and to arbitrarily initiate unwanted transactions on a user’s behalf.
This proposal outlines a protocol in which Ethereum-enabled DOM environments expose no accounts until the user approves account access.
