How do I view my Trezor private keys?

Trezor does not store anything other than your master private key in its memory. This private key is generated locally on your Trezor and never leaves the device. This allows you to store your private key safely and therefore, you cannot view it.

Instead, Trezor gives you a 12 or 24-word recovery phrase which is a representation of your private key translated into human-readable words. The private key is actually mathematically derived from this recovery seed so they are treated the same.

You can view your recovery phrase when you first set up your Trezor device.

Just like with the Exodus 12-word phrase, your Trezor 12 or 24-word phrase should be kept off of any digital device and stored in a safe place where it cannot be damaged, lost, or stolen.
