Get current account address when switching wallets?

how do I use moralis to do this?

   const accounts = await window.ethereum.request({ method: 'eth_requestAccounts' });
    const account = accounts[0];

When I connect a user, the ethAddress stays the same even when a user changes his metamask account, should I directly call metamask or is there a way to get the current account through moralis?

Hi, what I do is that I create use the useState hook to save accounts logged in with moralis. Then I use the useEffect hook with the accounts dependency so that everytime accounts change you can do whatever you want in the useEffect (so display the other account).

what do you mean? when the user switches account (different wallet address) the moralis “user” object doesn’t change, best I can do is using “onAccountChanged” but than I either link the user with moralis which doesn’t work nicely for some reason? the user is connected based on metamask but moralis asks for signature again…

      await, {
                wait: false,
                silent: true

I would like to do this without asking for a new signature, since the user already logged in to moralis, so him changing wallet should not be an issue if I link it no? like, what’s the point of asking a signature again?

A Moralis user is not same thing as switching an account in MetaMask. When the user signs the message it’s sent to Moralis for verification and moralis sets up a User in your database if the signature is correct.

sorry I meant using the account object from useMoralis() hook
for instance:

    const {isAuthenticated, Moralis, account} = useMoralis();

const getData = async () => {
            let data = getUserData();
            catch (error) {
            setErrorMessage('you must be logged in');
    useEffect(() => {
    }, [account])

If there are mutliple accounts connected each time you disconnect an account from metamask the account const will change so useEffect hook will be called.
