Importing a seed phrase from another wallet software: derivation path

When importing a Secret Recovery Phrase (seed phrase), MetaMask only supports the default BIP-44 derivation path (m/44'/60'/0'/0). For more information, see the technical specification here.

Currently, you can only use Ledger's derivation paths when connecting a Ledger hardware wallet (you get options for Legacy derivation MEW/MyCrypto, Ledger Live, or BIP44). The MetaMask team is looking at adding more options and customization; for example, custom networks may use different derivation paths.

At this time, Trezor hardware wallet integration only supports the BIP44 derivation path.
