This article describes the use of multiple accounts and explains why it might be useful.


Using multiple accounts[edit]

For each supported cryptocurrency, Trezor Suite allows you to manage multiple accounts. This functionality allows easier tracking of balances and managing your cryptocurrency identity. To enhance the privacy of your transactions, you can use multiple accounts, each with a specific purpose.

Accounts each have their own unique extended public key (XPUB). Knowing an XPUB makes it possible to see all transactions to and from an account, so using more accounts protects this sensitive information.

Keep in mind that if you frequently send funds between two accounts, it may become clear that you are the owner of both. For this reason, using multiple accounts as an extra privacy feature is better suited to more advanced users.

Creating a new account[edit]

Creating a new account is easy. When in Trezor Suite press the plus sign + next to My accounts and choose the coin you wish to work with. Some cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin offer different address to work with, so you will need to specify this before proceeding. Confirm the new account and it will be created and appear in the sidebar. Now you can work with the new account.

NoteTo send funds between your accounts, send a transaction from one account using the receiving address of the other. See also Making payments and Receiving payments
