Inside the box
Make sure the security seal on the package is intact first and foremost. Contact TEZOR support if you believe it to be tempered.
This is what you get when you open the box.
Setting up TREZOR
Setting up your Trezor for the first time is rather simple. The entire operation should just take ten to fifteen minutes.
Step 1: Connect TREZOR to your computer
Use the included USB cord to connect your TREZOR wallet to your computer. You should then see a Lock icon and a message instructing you to go to trezor.io/start on the screen of your TREZOR wallet.
Step 2: Go to trezor.io/start
Find out how the recovery seed and TREZOR PIN function. After that, decide whether or not you wish to sign up for their newsletter and get on with setting up your device.
Step 3: Install TREZOR Wallet
TREZOR.io if you weren’t already. You can either install the TREZOR Chrome Extension or the TREZOR Bridge tailored to your operating system in order for your TREZOR device to communicate with your TREZOR wallet.
Step 4: Install laterst firmware
I’m going to use the Chome Extension in this guide.
The gadget will not have any firmware installed when it is supplied for security reasons. For the initial firmware installation, select “Yes, Install” and start the process.
Step 5: Reconnect TREZOR
Verify that the firmware fingerprints on your TREZOR and your browser screen match by comparing them. On your TREZOR, press “Continue”.
Step 6: Give TREZOR device a name
Step 7: Setting up the PIN
Go to wallet, unplug it, then replug it in.
At first, setting up your PIN could seem difficult, but once you understand it, it’s simple.
In your browser, a 3 3 grid (with dots) will be shown.
And on your TREZOR, you will see a 3 by 3 grid (with numbers).
So, let’s imagine that you want your PIN to be 6789. You will input these numbers one at a time into your browser while referring to the precise placement of each one on your TREZOR.
Step 8: Write down the recovery seeds
This must be repeated twice in order to verify your PIN.
Find out more about the TREZOR PIN.
Your TREZOR will then show a special string of 24 words. In the event that your device is lost, you will be able to recover your accounts using this.
Write each of the 24 words in the accompanying recovery seed card, word by word. Recheck it, then press Complete on your TREZOR.
Final Step: Enter PIN to access TREZOR wallet
Ensure sure your recovery seed card is never lost.
