This works by the wallet creating a mnemonic phrase and asking the user for a password.
Then both the mnemonic phrase and extra word are required to recover the wallet. The BIP39 standard defines a way of passphrase-protecting a mnemonic seed. A similar scheme is also used in the Electrum standard. If a passphrase is not present, an empty string "" is used instead. Forgetting this password will result in the bitcoin wallet and any contained money being lost. Do not overestimate your ability to remember passphrases especially when you may not use it very often. The mnemonic phrase password should not be confused with the password used to encrypt the wallet file on disk.

You could create a decoy wallet which has the same mnemonic phrase but a different password, and if physically coerced then reveal only the first password and keep the second a secret. On the other hand, the entity coercing you may already know about the concept of decoy wallets.
