Trezor Wiki/User/User manual/ Two-factor Authentication with U2F


To boost your online security, you can use your Trezor device to log in using U2F standards. You can start using Trezor as your second-factor authentication token with services such as Google, GitHub or Dropbox. A further advantage of Trezor is that its users can truly verify what they are about to authorize on the device display.


NoteFor a list of websites and services supporting U2F, see dongleauth.info.


How to set up Trezor as a U2F key[edit]

NoteIt is not possible to use multiple devices with the same recovery seed for U2F if the service has a counter mechanism in place.


In this short tutorial, we use Dropbox as an example. However, all services should have a similar setup procedure.

  1. In the Security tab of Settings, click on Add to set up Trezor as your U2F Security Key.
