You can hide your balances to deny curious eyes the amounts you stored in your Talisman wallet. This feature is also handy when taking pictures or videos of your wallet without exposing your funds to everyone. While hidden, you can view balances individually by clicking the blurred line you would like to reveal.
​
Extension view guide
In the extension view mode simply open up the list of your accounts and hover your mouse over your Total Portfolio balance at the top. A slashed eye icon will appear. Click this to hide your balances. Click the eye icon again to reveal them.
​
Expanded view guide
Select Settings in the main menu and enable the Hide Balances slider as shown in the picture below. To stop hiding the balances simply click the slider again.
NOTE: Hiding balances in the extension view will also hide them in the expanded view!
Toggling this mode on permits Talisman to act in place of MetaMask when interacting with dApps that are specifically seeking to connect with MetaMask. This is a very handy feature for people that only use Talisman as their wallet across the Substrate and EVM ecosystem.
If you use both Talisman and MetaMask in your browser, it is recommended to disable this feature so that the extensions do not interfere with each other. However, if you go this route be aware that you may find that Talisman and MetaMask are both responding to the same dApp at once and bloating your screen with pop-ups.
Whenever Talisman doesn't respond as expected while using a dApp in the EVM ecosystem it's suggested to check this setting. You need this turned on if Talisman is your only EVM wallet.
​
To access this feature navigate to the Talisman Settings.
