Your Personal Identification Number

The PIN is a combination of up to 9 numbers that you select after initializing your KeepKey. A PIN protects your device against unauthorized use in the event your KeepKey falls into the wrong hands. 

Even if your KeepKey is stolen, it cannot be accessed without the correct PIN. In addition, the number placement is re-scrambled at random each time you connect your device, so even a key-logger cannot decipher your PIN because the numbers are only shown on the device. 

You can enter your PIN with confidence on an infected computer. Even if your computer became infected with malware or spyware (such as key-logging software), your PIN would remain safe.
