A trusted device is either a device that you own and control, or the device of someone you trust completely with your account and funds.
If you do not want to reveal the custody account name, you can use a public key instead.

This system uses the secure element hardware on your phone to store the keys you are about to create. Your phone’s built in hardware security module (HSM) protects the keys which can only be accessed by you via your phone’s fingerprint or facial recognition hardware.

This is also why you need to use the custodian account to replace keys if you switch phones.
Some special tools, like manual clear of account info from this phone's localStorage. Ignore if you're not a programmer :)
