Which hardware wallets does Exodus support?

Currently, Exodus supports the Trezor Model T and the Trezor Model One. You can see more about the partnership here.

What Bitcoin addresses does Trezor support on Exodus?

Exodus Supports sending to all three types of Bitcoin addresses. You can receive funds to your Exodus Native SegWit address (begins with bc1) or your Legacy address (begins with 1).
Trezor in Exodus Supports sending to all three types of Bitcoin addresses. You can only receive funds to your Nested SegWit (P2SH) addresses (begins with 3).

Please note: If you have connected your Trezor to a different platform and you have sent some Bitcoin to an address on your Trezor that doesn't start with a 3, then you will not be able to view this balance inside of Exodus. However, you will be able to see this Bitcoin balance on a different platform that supports the other Bitcoin address types.

Setting up your brand new Trezor Model T out of the box with Exodus

The following steps apply to setting up a fresh out-of-the-box Trezor.

Plug in your Trezor. Open Exodus and go to Settings > Devices then where it says Install Trezor Bridge click on Install Now.

Please note: To install Trezor Bridge, you must do so from a Chromium-based browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Brave. Downloading Trezor Bridge is not possible from Safari.

Make sure to leave the Detect Trezor toggle enabled. Do not close Exodus or disconnect the device while the firmware update is in progress. Trezor will auto-restart when finished.
Exodus will prompt you to initialize the device by giving you two options.
  1. Restore from secret phrase.
  2. Create a new wallet.
Choose Create a new wallet.

Please note: You will be asked on the Trezor device if you agree to the Terms of Service. Agree to the terms to continue.

Create a PIN code for your device. Please remember your PIN as you will need it to unlock your device moving forward.
You will be shown your Trezor's secret phrase. Swipe on your Trezor to view all of the words. Depending on the device, the secret phrase can be 12-24 words. Write them down on paper, spelled correctly and in the correct order. Please never store them digitally.
After your secret phrase is written down, hold down Confirm on your Trezor device. Your Trezor will now ask you to confirm a couple of the words before proceeding to ensure you have written them down correctly.
Exodus will ask if you want to Connect your Trezor. Click Connect to begin pairing Trezor and Exodus.

That's it! You can now send, receive, and exchange assets using your Trezor with Exodus.

Connect a Trezor which has already been set up

Open Exodus.
Ensure all other programs which might interfere with your hardware wallet connection are closed (such as the Trezor web wallet, MEW or Electrum).
Connect your hardware wallet to Exodus.
Unlock your hardware wallet by entering your pin.
If your Trezor requires a passphrase, you can choose to enter the passphrase on your device or on Exodus by choosing Host.
Approve the connection between your hardware wallet and Exodus on the Exodus interface.

You will now have access to the supported assets held on your hardware wallet within the Exodus interface as well as your Exodus assets. Please note that not all assets supported by Trezor are supported through Exodus at this time. We are working toward having the complete Exodus portfolio supported between the two wallets to provide the most seamless hardware wallet to desktop experience available.
