Passport makes it easy to segregate your Bitcoin into different sections for different purposes. These sections are called 'Accounts' and your device is capable of generating as many as you need, all backed up by the same seed words and/or backup file.
Upon setup, Passport begins with just one 'Primary' account. If you'd like to learn how to add more, click here.
Sign a transaction by scanning QR codes. Passport supports two standards for parsing data from QR codes:
At this time, Passport is unable to sign transactions in a single unformatted QR code. The only affected wallet that we know of is Electrum.
This selection also can parse other QR codes. For example, you can scan the QR codes of a multisig configuration and Passport will offer to import the config.
When Passport is displaying the signed transaction as a QR code series, pressing up/down on the square copper colored d-pad will increase/decrease the screen brightness. Equally, pressing left/right with increase/decrease the QR code density.

Sign a transaction by manually selecting a file from an inserted microSD card. Passport supports signing any Partially Signed Bitcoin Transaction 'PSBT' file of the extension .psbt from all common wallet co-ordinator software.
Verify that a receive address belongs to your Passport. Passport starts its search from index #0 and moves outwards from there in small increments.
If at first Passport cannot find the scanned address please continue searching. This is particularly relevant for users importing an existing seed to their Passport.
