User manual:Advanced settings
The purpose of this article is to help the user to configure the advanced settings in Trezor Wallet.
Several advanced settings can be configured after setting up your Trezor device. You can access Advanced settings in Trezor Wallet by clicking on the name of your device and then clicking on the Advanced tab. Below is a short description for each of the functionalities.
For advanced security measures using the passphrase protection, see Multi-passphrase encryption (hidden wallets).
Disable PIN protection
In advanced settings, it is possible to disable the PIN protection. However, it is not recommended to do so. PIN protection reduces the risk that a person with physical access to your Trezor could gain access to your cryptocurrency funds. Trezor Wallet asks you for your PIN every time you plug in your Trezor device. Your computer never learns your PIN.
Check recovery seed
You can run a simulated recovery to check your recovery seed. We recommend doing this before every firmware update. For more information about the dry-run recovery, see Dry-run recovery or the blog article blog article.
