passphrase (Bitcoin)

A passphrase is an optional string created by the user that serves as an additional security factor protecting the seed, even when the seed is compromised by a thief. It can also be used as a form of plausible deniability, where a chosen passphrase leads to a wallet with a small amount of funds used to distract an attacker from the “real” wallet that contains the majority of funds.
