Set up your Trezor Password Manager:
Trezor Password Manager works with Chrome and cross-platform on your MacOS, Windows, and Linux. To set it up, follow the steps below.
Install the Trezor Password Manager Chrome extension (TPM)
Add the Trezor Password Manager Chrome extension into your browser. Then click on the Trezor icon in the top right corner of your browser.
Sign in with Google Drive or Dropbox
Click on Sign in with Dropbox or on Sign in with Drive and log in with your account. If you do not have a Google or Dropbox account yet, you can create one for free. If logging in with Dropbox, give your Trezor permission to create a folder in your Dropbox to store all the passwords and confirm. Do not worry, the passwords in your Dropbox will be encrypted and inaccessible without your Trezor.
How do Trezor and Dropbox work together?
Trezor Password Manager creates a folder “/Apps/Trezor Password Manager/” in your Dropbox and stores each password entry in a separate encrypted file.
All files are encrypted using keys derived from your Trezor. It is not possible for anyone else to access your passwords nor to make any edits.
Connect Your Trezor device and enter your PIN
To learn more about entering your PIN, see User manual:Entering your PIN.
Enable Password Manager on your Trezor device.
This action will start the encryption of your password files with your Trezor.
Congratulations! You are ready to use Trezor Password Manager.
Tags are used to filter and find your passwords easily. You can add and remove tags according to your needs.

To create a new tag:
- Click on Add tag button on the bottom of the list of your tags.

It is also possible to fill in the username and password by right clicking on a website where you want to log in and choosing the "Log in to" option.
Remember to have your Trezor connected. Otherwise, it will not work. The little green square in the corner of the Password Manager extension icon indicates that your device is connected and that your credentials are stored for the currently open website.

Export and import of passwords
Starting with Password Manager version 0.6.3, users can export or import the passwords to or from third-party password manager services. To export or import passwords, click on the account in the right top corner in the Password Manager and choose import or export.
During export, it is possible to export only selected passwords. The CSV file does not have a header. The columns in the exported file are as follows:
URL, Title, Username, Password, Tags, Secret note
When importing your passwords from third-party services, it is possible to sort your CSV columns by type.
Migrate the passwords to another service
You can migrate the critical file containing the passwords from Dropbox to Google Drive and the other way around. It is considered a good practice to keep the backup of the file in multiple places, so that you are not dependant on a single service.
There is a unique file paired with a recovery seed loaded on your Trezor. The keys derived from your recovery seed is what makes the file secure and accessible.
Both Google Drive and Dropbox store the file in the TREZOR Password Manager. This TPM sub-folder is stored in a general application folder called Apps.
You can make regular copies of this file to have a reliable backup. Store the files locally, or move them to the other service.
Follow the steps outlined below if you ever find it difficult to access your passwords using Google Drive:
1. Log in to your Dropbox account or create a new one.
2. Find the "Apps" folder and open it. If it is not there, create a folder called "Apps".
3. Find the "TREZOR Password Manager" folder and open it. If it is not there, create a folder called "TREZOR Password Manager".
4. Place the .pswd file in the "TREZOR Password Manager" folder.
5. Open the TPM extension and use your account together with your Trezor to access the passwords.
If you ever wish to migrate the file from Dropbox to Google Drive, the process is the same; download the file and place it in the appropriate folder using the other service.
