Passphrase

Optional security feature

A passphrase can be enabled as an additional security measure. It allows you to create "hidden wallets" that can only be accessed with your PIN and passphrase. Your existing accounts will not be hidden behind this passphrase. Simply leave the passphrase field blank to access your non-passphrase protected accounts. 

 A passphrase operates as an additional, 13th word appended to your 12 word recovery sentence. This feature is not recommended for new users. There is no way for KeepKey to recover or reset your passphrase. Thus, it is not recommended unless you understand its implications. 

DO NOT FORGET YOUR PASSPHRASE.
