English manual Trezor One

Setting up your Trezor One

Step 1: Installing Trezor Bridge

Start an internet browser (Google Chrome or Firefox) on your computer and go to the Trezor website. Select the Trezor One by clicking on it. Afterwards, the website may ask you to confirm whether the seal is still on the Trezor. If this is the case, click on 'Continue'. If not, please contact our support team.

Now you can install Trezor Bridge. This is software that helps your computer to communicate with the Trezor. Select your operating system (Windows, MacOS or Linux) and press 'Download the latest Bridge'. Open the downloaded file and go through the installation process. When the process is completed Trezor Bridge will automatically work in the background.

Step 2: Making a connection

Connect the Trezor One to a computer with the included USB cable. Sometimes connecting the cable to the Trezor may take a little push. When the Trezor is connected, the display will turn on automatically. Now go in your browser to wallet.trezor.io.

Step 3: Installing firmware

Then the correct firmware needs to be updated. This can be done simply by clicking on the 'Install Firmware' button. This may take a while.

Step 4: Create Wallet

Now you can create a new wallet. Click on the button 'Create new'.

Your Trezor will now ask for confirmation. On the Trezor, press 'Confirm'.

Step 5: Backup creation

A backup is very important. We recommend that you never send coins to the device before you have made a backup. A backup should be made once and should be kept in a safe place. It gives you access to your tokens even if the device breaks down.

Click on your computer to 'Create a backup in 3 minutes'. Read the text and confirm that you understand how to save the backup. Click on 'Continue'.

Your Trezor will now show 24 words. Write these correctly and in the right order on the supplied paper. Then press and hold the green button to confirm.

The Trezor now asks you to check all words one more time and to check them correctly.

Step 6: Choosing a PIN code

When you have done the check you go back to your computer screen. Press 'Continue'.

Your Trezor will now ask you if you want to set a PIN code. Click on 'Confirm' on your Trezor. Now you can choose a pin code on your computer screen with which you can log in. On your computer screen you will see nine empty buttons. On your Trezor you can see which button belongs to which number.

Next, you have to confirm the pin code. Attention! The order of the numbers on your Trezor changes the second time.

Step 7: Name the device

On your computer screen, press 'Continue' twice. Now enter a name for your device and press 'Confirm to continue'.

On the Trezor, press 'Confirm' to confirm your name.

Step 8: Set up the bookmark

To prevent accidentally ending up on a fake website you can save this website in your Bookmarks. You can do this by pressing Ctrl + D.

Congratulations! Your Trezor One is now ready to use!
