What is Trezor Bridge?

Trezor Bridge is an application that facilitates communication between the Trezor device and supported browsers.

Trezor Bridge is a program designed to run in the background and requires no direct interaction. When properly installed, you will be able to find the trezord process running in the background:

Windows: in Task Manager search for trezord
MacOS: in Activity Monitor search for trezord
Linux: in System Monitor search for trezord-go


After you install Trezor Bridge with Firefox for the first time, restart your browser. Without restarting, the browser might not be able to recognize your Trezor device.


Updating Trezor Bridge

You can upgrade to the latest version of Trezor Bridge directly here, and simply clicking on Download latest Bridge:


Alternatively, check the Github repository.


When using the desktop version of Trezor Suite it will connect to Trezor Bridge automatically. If that fails, Trezor Suite will run it's own copy of Trezor Bridge.
