    That being said, passphrase functionality works different in Monero GUI in comparison to Trezor Suite (Monero GUI doesn't allow plausible deniability, see: Since Monero GUI works with wallet files and Trezor Suite don't, in Monero GUI you must have a wallet file previously created for each passphrase in order to access your multiple "hidden" wallets, while on Trezor Suite you don't have to create any wallet file, you can just type a different passphrase every time you open the software and it will open a different wallet for each passphrase you type. If you need plausible deniability with passphrases in Monero GUI, you will have to create your wallet file, access your wallet and then delete your wallet file every time you want need it.
