Where and How to Store Hardware Wallet 

The most important thing is to remember that if you have your mnemonic phrase, you can restore your funds even if you lose your Hardware Wallet! 

So make sure that your mnemonic phrase is safe and stored separately from the hardware wallet itself.  

Most Hardware Wallets have built-in security preventing any stranger from accessing your funds without your permission, like passwords, pins, and fake accounts. Some have temper-proof futures, meaning it’s protected from being physically opened to get inside. It will require pro and special equipment to get your funds out of the stolen and cracked-open wallet (if it’s not temper-proof), so it will take some time for the thief to figure it out. 

Hardware Wallets are designed to be with you handy or stored in highly accessible places. It’s more dangerous if your Hardware Wallet gets stolen and you are unaware of it! If you know it right away, the thief would have very little time to break into it. At the same time, you can move your funds to another wallet if you know it immediately.
