Hardware wallets are special pieces of hardware (sometimes resembling USB thumb drives) that store and manage your Private Keys for you. The way they do this depends on the type of hardware wallet, but in general a hardware wallet will generate a set of Private Keys and Public Keys (wallet addresses) randomly, and they are stored in the hardware wallet's own secure integrated circuit boards. Hardware wallets generate the keys via a Secret Recovery Phrase, just like software wallets. Hardware wallets will generally show you your Secret Recovery Phrase when you set up your hardware wallet, so you can store the phrase safely in case you lose your hardware wallet itself. As always, you must keep your Secret Recovery Phrase very secure, and keep it to yourself, because if someone has it, they can access your wallet’s funds.
A hardware wallet will usually include features to connect to your computer, or provide some other way of authorizing transactions with your wallet.
