Getting started with Exodus and Trezor

Sound the trumpets! Exodus and Trezor have formed a formidable alliance that will take your wallet experience and security to a whole new level. Trezor Model T and Trezor One are compatible with Exodus!

Read how Exodus and Trezor help keep your assets safe. 

Pairing your hardware wallet with Exodus is quite simple! First, please ensure that you are running the latest version of Exodus. If you are not running the latest version, upgrade now!  


In this article:


Connect a Trezor which has already been set up

1
Open Exodus
2
Ensure all other programs which might interfere with your hardware wallet connection are closed (such as the Trezor web wallet, MEW or Electrum)
3
Connect your hardware wallet to Exodus
4
Unlock your hardware wallet by entering your pin
5
If your Trezor requires a passphrase, you can choose to enter the passphrase on your device or on Exodus by choosing Host
6
Approve the connection between your hardware wallet and Exodus on the Exodus interface

You will now have access to the supported assets held on your hardware wallet within the Exodus interface as well as your Exodus assets. Please note that not all assets supported by Trezor are supported through Exodus at this time. We are working toward having the complete Exodus portfolio supported between the two wallets to provide the most seamless hardware wallet to desktop experience available.


Create a new wallet on your brand new Trezor Model T

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

1
Install Trezor Bridge. Trezor Bridge enables communication between your Trezor and Exodus and allows them to be friends. If you need to install Trezor Bridge, you can download it here: https://wallet.trezor.io/#/bridge
Note: To install Trezor Bridge, you must do so from a Chromium based browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Brave Browser. Downloading Trezor bridge is not possible from Safari. 
2
Open Exodus and plug your Trezor in. Your Trezor will begin to boot up and Exodus will immediately detect your Trezor as it begins to update the firmware. Do not close Exodus or disconnect the device while the firmware update is in progress.
3
Once the firmware update completes, Trezor will restart.
4
Exodus will prompt you to initialize the device by giving you two options.
    1. Restore from recovery phrase
    2. Create new wallet
5
If you choose Create new wallet, you will be asked on the Trezor device if you agree to the terms of use. Agree to the terms to continue.
6
Create a pin code for your device. You will need this pin code to unlock your device moving forward.
7
Once you create your pin, you will be shown your 18-word recovery phrase. Swipe on your Trezor to view all of the words. Write them down on paper, spelled correctly and in the correct order. Never store them digitally. 
8
After the words are written down, hold down confirm on the Trezor device.
9
Trezor will ask you to confirm a couple of the words before proceeding. Enter the words correctly and your new wallet will be created! Congratulations!
10
Exodus will ask if you want to `Connect` your Trezor. Click `Connect` to begin pairing Trezor and Exodus.
That's it! You can now send, receive, and exchange assets using your Trezor with Exodus.

Restore a previously existing wallet on your brand new Trezor Model T

Only use this option if your recovery phrase is from a hardware wallet and has not been exposed to the internet, a computer or any other electronic device. Do not use your Exodus recovery phrase in a Trezor.
