    • Upon receiving a Trezor device, users should carefully unbox the package and ensure that all components are present, including the hardware wallet, USB cable, and instruction manual.

    • Before proceeding, users should ensure that their computer or mobile device is connected to a secure and stable internet connection.

  • Connecting the Trezor Device:

    • First-time users should connect their Trezor device to their computer or mobile device using the provided USB cable.

    • Users may need to install the Trezor Bridge software or Trezor Wallet app, depending on their device and operating system.

  • Initializing the Device:

    • Upon connecting the Trezor device, users will be prompted to initialize the device by pressing the buttons on the device in a specific sequence.
