When your KeepKey is initialized, you are given an opportunity to write down a recovery sentence. This recovery sentence is your KeepKey’s backup. If your KeepKey is lost or stolen, you can recovery your private keys using this recovery sentence. KeepKey supports the account hierarchy standardized in BIP 44. Any software that supports BIP 44 can recover your funds. You can also recover your private keys onto a new KeepKey with the recovery sentence. We recommend using KeepKey’s recovery process on a new device, as your private keys remain protected should there be malware or viruses on your computer.
