I lost my Trezor, help!

Not to worry, Trezor is designed with this in mind! As long as you have your recovery seed in the form of the 12 or 24-word phrase, you can restore your funds on a new device.

To get a new Trezor device, please use the official Trezor website: https://shop.trezor.io/

Restore your funds on a new Trezor Model T device

The following steps apply for a freshly out of the box Trezor.

1
Plug in your Trezor. Open Exodus and go to Settings > Devices then where it says Install Trezor Bridge click on Install Now.

Please note: If you already have Trezor Bridge installed, please skip this step.

2
Make sure to leave the Detect Trezor toggle enabled. Do not close Exodus or disconnect the device while the firmware update is in progress. Trezor will auto-restart when finished.
3
Exodus will prompt you to initialize the device by giving you two options.
  1. Restore from secret phrase
  2. Create a new wallet
4
Choose Restore from secret phrase.

Please note: You will be asked on the Trezor device if you agree to the terms of use. Agree to the terms to continue.

5
Select the corresponding number of words in your seed Trezor is capable of recovering 12, 18, and 24-word-long seeds.
6
Enter the individual words of your seed on your device, following the instructions displayed on the Trezor touchscreen.

Example of entering the word "CRIME":

  • Press the "abc" button 3 times to enter the letter "C"
  • Press the "pqr" button 3 times to enter the letter "R"
  • Press the "ghi" button 3 times to enter the letter "I"
  • Press the "mni" button once to enter the letter "M"
  • Press the "def" button twice to enter the letter "E"

Make sure you are not misspelling your seed words.

Please note: With Trezor Model T, you have to enter all recovery seed words on the device. This way, the seed stays in an isolated and safe environment.

Once you have successfully recovered your wallet, continue the setup by enabling basic security features and customizing your experience.

If you use a passphrase, you will need to re-enable it after recovering your Trezor. Use the same passphrase to access your wallet.
