This firmware further improves the overall security of the TREZOR hardware wallet and your privacy.
We have also implemented an important change to PIN protection and added support for the Dash cointype.
PIN newly required to load wallet accounts
After updating your firmware to 1.3.3 you’ll notice a slight change when working with myTrezor.com, Mycelium for Android, MultiBit HD or any other TREZOR compatible applications. From now on each time you plug in your device, you’ll be requested to enter your PIN before your account balances and transaction history load. This way, we aim to improve your privacy protection and make sure that no unauthorized person can get access to any sensitive data or view your bitcoin wealth if you leave your TREZOR unattended.
Sign In with TREZOR
Using a specialized token or 2 factor authentication to secure access to websites and apps is no novelty. But thanks to the entire security design and unique hardware features of TREZOR, we are introducing the most secure and convenient way of user authentication. TREZOR Connect expands the use of the wallet beyond bitcoin and digital currencies.
Stay tuned for our upcoming blog posts to learn why using “Sign in with TREZOR” is way safer than using a Facebook login or GoogleAuth or even better than using a specialized password management software.
Before we tell you more and prepare a showcase so you can try this new feature, get ready for TREZOR Connect and update your TREZOR Firmware to version 1.3.3.
Improvements to TREZOR Security
Thanks to the expert brains of Jochen Hoenicke and Nicolas Bacca, who continue to help us improving TREZOR’s open source code, we were able to further strengthen TREZOR’s security. Jochen also significantly optimized the transaction signing code, so it is now up to 4 times faster and resistant against timing attacks.Tags: API, connect, firmware update, Login, mytrezor, trezor
