Screen

LCD touchscreen (240x240 pixels) used on Trezor T provides enough space to comfortably display the transaction details, requests for confirmation, warnings, or even simple images. The screen is an essential tool allowing the user to reliably check the legitimacy of entered data with no need to trust the host device(computer/phone).

The touchscreen gives the user the ultimate control of the device. The necessity of physical confirmation has been implemented to protect the accounts from a vast majority of remote attacks. Using the touchscreen is the only way to unlock the device, enter the PIN, recover the existing wallet, and to confirm any other action.
