A hardware wallet is a physical electrical device that you use to secure your cryptos such as bitcoin, ethereum, cardano, dogecoin or other altcoins. A hardware wallet allows you to be in charge of your crypto currency and not have to leave it with a third party that can be hacked. Other terms used for a hardware wallet are 'external wallet', 'cold wallet' and 'cold storage'.

This is the big difference with an exchange or software wallet. With an exchange you do not own the private key and with a software wallet your private key is on a device that is connected to the Internet.
