What is it?
Trusted session let you select a time window during which you don't have to approve transactions with guardians.
You can choose between:
- 1 hour
- 3 hours
- 1 year
You can also actively close a session at any time.
How does it work?
Trusted session creates a new temporary private key. Once you authorize the trusted session with the guardians, this new private key will be able to take any action without guardians.
At the end of the session window or when you choose to end it, the key becomes useless and is discarded.
Outside trusted session, all transactions except the ones within an active Trust List or with trusted contacts require guardian approval.
How to start/complete the trusted session?
Go to your Argent wallet > account switcher (ETH or zkSync icon on the top-left in your Assets tab) > Argent Vault > Security tab > tap on Trusted Session. You will be able to select the length of the session. Once you proceed, you will need to approve the session start with guardians.
Trusted Sessions and gas
- Starting/completing the trusted session will require Ethereum network fees (gas).
- When the session expires, no gas is needed. However, if you actively end the session before it expires, you will need to pay gas.
