Standard recovery vs advanced recovery

This is actually pretty awesome about a few weeks ago I learned the difference between standard and advanced recovery when inputting your seed on a new device or recurring device and at first I was kind of paranoid because I used standard before I switched to advanced and then I came across this article after contacting Trezor themselves and they confirmed to me it is still extremely safe . Crypto is awesome and I love Trezor

  1. Please bear in mind that no one from the Trezor team would send you a private message first.
    If you want to discuss a sensitive issue, we suggest contacting our Support team via the Troubleshooter:

    No one from the Trezor team (Reddit mods, Support agents, etc) would ever ask for your recovery seed!

  2. Just to note, it only affects owners of Model 1.

    Model T and Safe 3, you enter your seed directly onto the device.

  3. Just be aware that standards recovery is only safe with 24 word seeds. (Which is the default for Trezor One)

    If you have a 12 word seed and run standard recovery twice on a compromised system, you have potentially leaked your 12 words… (Which can then be trivially descrambled)
