    You’ll use hardware wallets when you want to protect and use the cryptocurrency you own. The hardware wallet will have public and private keys so you can access the cryptocurrency. This is called a 2-factor authentication method. Using this method, you’ll use a physical form of identification as well as a PIN. The wallet contains secure algorithms that protect the data in the wallet. They also allow you to access the cryptocurrency network to make transactions. Many hardware wallets will have a small display screen. This screen gives you just a bit of information about each transaction. Make sure whichever hardware wallet you select can support the cryptocurrency format you like to use.
