Why can't I view my Trezor secret recovery phrase or private keys using Exodus?

Trezor only shows your secret recovery phrase once when you first create your Trezor wallet. Trezor doesn't show you individual private keys.

After your Trezor wallet is created and set up, your secret recovery phrase is stored offline on your Trezor, and viewing the secret recovery phrase is no longer possible.

Because your secret recovery phrase is only shown once, it is crucial to write it down and store it in a safe and secure location.

Never keep any digital copies of your secret recovery phrase, and never share it with anyone.

Why shouldn't I import my Exodus wallet into my Trezor?

If you import your Exodus 12-word secret recovery phrase into your Trezor, it negates the main benefit of having a Trezor, which is that the Trezor secret recovery phrase is generated on a device that isn't connected to the internet.

This is because Trezor is a cold wallet. Cold wallets can't connect to the internet. Trezor stores your secret recovery phrase and private keys offline. Storing your secret recovery phrase and private keys offline using a cold wallet is the best way to keep your funds safe. If your secret recovery phrase is never on a device connected to the internet, it is impossible to hack.

Exodus is a hot wallet because the 12-word secret recovery phrase is stored directly on your device, and your device can connect to the internet. Hot wallets are convenient and easy to use. But they can be vulnerable to digital attacks if your device is compromised. Your wallet is only as safe as the device it's stored on.

If you decide to use a Trezor, it is important that your Trezor generates your secret recovery phrase. Always keep your Trezor secret recovery phrase offline. Never keep any digital copies of your secret recovery phrase and never share it with anyone.
