A private key is a special combination of symbols that gives access to the cryptocurrencies stored in an account. Only the person who knows the key can move and spend coins.
In the simplest case (more on this below), the system itself generates a private key and then uses it to create a public (public) key. The public and private keys are alphanumeric combinations that are linked together. At the same time, it is a one-way connection – knowing the private key, you can find out the public key, but knowing the public key, you can not find out the private key.

Trust Wallet only has a recovery phrase, also known as seed words or mnemonic phrases, which is an ordered list of 12 words that point to specific wallet addresses. Each phrase leads to an almost infinite number of addresses, but most wallet interfaces choose the first of the list to use as the public address.
You can convert your mnemonic phrase into private keys from Bitcoin, Etherium, Ripple and other blockchains using the Trust Wallet private key export utility.
