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.

Passphrase

In this section of Advanced settings, you can set up your passphrase protection. For more information about the use of passphrase, see also Passphrase, Using passphrase and our blog article.

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 this blog article.
