Secure Cold Wallet Setup Introduction

For maximum security, AirGap Vault has to be installed on an offline device and never connected to the internet again. This ensures that the private key cannot be leaked via a USB cable or a persistent bluetooth connection. It is fully air-gapped and isolated from any network and provides the best possible security.

Preparing a mobile phone to be used as a secure offline and air-gapped cold wallet is not difficult, but it's important that best practices are followed to make sure it is as secure as it can be.
