how does trezor work and why can it improve security?
One of the best ways to keep crypto safe is to use a cold wallet. but what exactly is a cold wallet?
Reading: How to connect trezor to exodus
A cold wallet is a way to store cryptocurrency offline. private keys and secret recovery phrases for cold wallets are generated in an offline environment. you can read more about how cold wallets work here: hot and cold wallets.
trezor is a hardware wallet that can generate and store the secret recovery phrase and private keys in its flash memory. a trezor device does not connect to the internet and the secret recovery phrase for the wallet is generated offline. this makes trezor a cold wallet.
When you connect your trezor to a computer to send a transaction, trezor signs the transaction offline. the signed information is then shared with the computer to transmit the transaction.
Because the entire signing process happens offline and is processed directly by your trezor, it ensures that the secret recovery phrase and private keys in the trezor are not shared with the computer and are kept offline.
By keeping the secret recovery phrase and private keys in an offline environment, you can protect your funds from malware and hackers.
Although trezor is a cold wallet, the wallet is only as secure as its secret recovery phrase. anyone who has your secret recovery phrase can control the funds. never keep digital copies of the secret recovery phrase and never share the secret recovery phrase with anyone.

is my trezor linked to my exodus 12 word recovery secret phrase?
no, your exodus wallet and your trezor wallet are completely separate.
Because your trezor and exodus wallets are not linked, it is essential to write down both secret recovery phrases and keep them safely offline. your secret trezor recovery phrase is only displayed once, when you create your trezor wallet.
your exodus 12 word phrase can get your exodus wallet back. only trezor secret recovery phrase displayed when you first create the wallet can restore your trezor funds.
So it’s critical to keep both the 12-word exodus phrase and trezor’s secret recovery phrase safe.
