There are many hardware wallets available, the most popular is from Ledger and Trezor but we highly recommend Ledger.
No matter what hardware wallet you get, you will be protected. One thing you have to know is that buying wallets from any source other than the manufacturers is dangerous and unsafe.
Buying a hardware wallet on eCommerce sites like Amazon is not recommended. The sellers on these sites may have access to your private keys when you purchase from them.
You should always buy directly from the manufacturer’s website or walk into a store near you and get one.
