PSA – Fake Trezor app on IOS App Store – Asks you to input your 24 word seed to ‘sync your Trezor’ – Please report the app on your app store

I stumbled upon the app after discussing the Trezor suite for windows/mac (which is legit by the way)

The app says its 4+ years old yet has no reviews, first red flag.

The app looks alright, has the same feel as I would expect from Trezor

Straight away asks for your 24 word seed to sync your Trezor, second red flag and alarm bells start ringing.

So I do as I do usually and check reddit. Cant find anything on /r/CryptoCurrency (my apologies if I missed a post about this already on here, but..you know…. reddit search)

Found this post on /r/TREZOR saying its a definite scam: https://np.reddit.com/r/TREZOR/comments/lun0l8/fake_trezor_ios_app/

Then checked Trezor.io and found

iOS Trezor Wiki/Glossary/Trezor/Common device terms/ IOS iOS is the mobile operating system by Apple. Use of your Trezor device on iOS is currently not (yet) supported.

If you're on iOS please go to the app store and report it.

I can only imagine being a semi-noob and not being as vigilant or aware of the warning signs and getting all my shit stolen.

Edit: The app is just called "Trezor", I didnt want to link incase a bot flips its shit.

Edit 2: I just worked out that the age being 4+ is the age rating, not the age of the app
