KeepKey is a hardware wallet that secures bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, litecoin, dogecoin, dash and multiple erc-20 tokens. KeepKey works with the wallet software on your computer by taking over the management of private key generation, private key storage, and transaction signing.
- Bank-Grade Security that is Simple: KeepKey is the most secure bitcoin wallet available. It makes best-practice bitcoin security easy so that even your grandmother can protect her bitcoin wealth.
- Backup and Recovery: During initialization, you are given the one-time opportunity to write down a backup of your KeepKey in the form of a twelve-word recovery sentence. If your KeepKey is lost or stolen, you can safely recover your device and its bitcoins without compromising the security of your private keys.
