Tor is free and open-source software that enables anonymous communication.

Using Tor in Trezor Suite[edit]

Tor is now supported natively in Trezor Suite. Enable it by clicking the Tor icon in the upper right corner of the window.

Using web version of Trezor Suite with Tor Browser[edit]

We are running an onion service of Suite web at: http://suite.trezoriovpjcahpzkrewelclulmszwbqpzmzgub37gbcjlvluxtruqad.onion.

When using Trezor Suite with Firefox (which is a base for Tor Browser), we cannot use WebUSB (like in Chrome), but we need to use the Trezor Bridge. Please follow the instructions on the Bridge page to install it.

Tor Browser routes all traffic via Tor by default, and the Trezor Suite cannot directly contact the Trezor Bridge. Luckily, we can add an exception telling Tor Browser to communicate with the Bridge.

You need to use Tor Browser 9 or newer!

Instructions for enabling Trezor Bridge in Tor Browser[edit]

In Tor Browser 9 and newer, the required changes need to be done in the advanced settings.

  1. Type about:config in the address bar
  2. Search for the key network.proxy.no_proxies_on
  3. Set the value to 127.0.0.1:21325
  4. Search for the key network.http.referer.hideOnionSource
  5. Set the value to false

Regular URLs use HTTPS, while onion services do not use HTTPS but plain HTTP (encryption is guaranteed by the underlying Tor protocol).

Quick check for the onion address: it starts with "trezorio" and does not contain any numbers except for the "37".
