Sorry I’ve been so scared cause I don’t really understand what is going on with my trezor suite and this hidden wallet thing. I understand that it is basically another layer of security and you have the option to enter a passphrase and that is essentially always needed to recover your funds.
I have several Trezor devices and the one I definitely did set up as a hidden wallet. I put in a passphrase and I keep that coveted with my seed for back up. It asks me for this passphrase very often anytime I do a transaction or login etc.
Having said that, on all my other devices I have NO hidden wallet. I didn’t enter any passphrase and to my understanding they should all be shown as “standard wallet” in the top left of my trezor suite once I login.
My issue is, I have noticed that one of my devices says “Hidden wallet” as well underneath NOT “standard wallet” like I figured it should. It’s weird because it still functions completely normal like a standard wallet from what I can tell. It’s never asking me for an additional password layer of security like the hidden wallet Trezor device I have does.
I just don’t get it, it’s never asking me for a password, I never entered any hidden wallet details, nothing. Why is it saying it’s a Hidden wallet?
It’s really freaking me out because although I tested the seed phrase and confirmed it’s valid, I don’t want to have to reload my trezor from seed phrase if it breaks or something and find out that I somehow have some password associated with this trezor because it’s a hidden wallet.
I read a little online and I read some people have created hidden wallets by accident. Makes me sick to think I did that and now my funds have some password I made by accident and need someday. Having said that, if that’s the case, it should just function like my other hidden wallet and it should be asking me for this passphrase all the time??
Thank you so much for your help. I’m so appreciative of any assistance you can give me. I sent a email to support ticket number is 101740
Sorry I can’t even sleep and so fearful for funds! thank you again
P.S - Looking through for forums I noticed this post from July 8th from someone else. It’s closest thing I have noticed from someone having same problem as me. But I don’t think there was ever resolution posted.
I have a Trezor One and in the first time I used the web wallet (trezor.io ) but now I am using Trezor Suite. So far so good. I have noticed that my wallet is called a “hidden wallet” in Trezor Suite, although I do not have enabled the passphrase feature. I do not use a 25th word.
After a quick internet search, I found that other users have noticed this too:
After the last Trezor Suite update, my wallet suddenly appeared as “standard wallet”. I thought: “okay, seems they have fixed this little bug” but now, as I start Trezor Suite, it is called a “hidden wallet” again.
