Hello everyone!

Can someone explain to me why I have to link my Dropbox Account with my Trezor in order to be able to name my Trezor accounts? Is this some kind of promotional deal or what is the purpose of this?

Thanks folks

See TREZOR User Manual.

By connecting TREZOR Wallet with Dropbox cloud storage, you can enjoy all these useful features:
•   Rename accounts
•   Label receiving addresses
•   Comment transactions

I'm not a Trezor user as I personally prefer Ledger Nano S so I really am not sure about this, but this is probably because naming addresses, and accounts requires a bit of storage memory. My guess is that the Trezor doesn't have that much memory for these data to be stored so they require you're dropbox account to be connected so the data can be stored there.

Just my guess. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though.

Is this safe? I think one of the reasons crypto was invented was because of the issue with cloud base memory before and now they are connecting it to one of the wallets?hmm

I'm pretty sure linking the Trezor to a Dropbox account is only optional. And if you're actually don't want to link your personal dropbox account, you can create a dummy one, just so your Trezor can store some of those data somewhere else. I'm pretty sure they don't store your private keys or anything important on dropbox anyway.

Thanks for the explanation! That makes totally sense. I also guess that this should be safe. The guys from Trezor seem pretty competent in what they are doing and i don't think that they would be stupid enough to store ANY sensible data on Dropbox!

Hi All

For people who might be reading tis thread as reference, it is also for portability, since a person will be using his Trezor wallet securely on any computer, using Dropbox will insure you will be able to see labels and notes whenever you move from one pc to another..
