How to Travel Securely With Your Crypto

  • Border checkpoints where your bags and devices may be checked out of your sight
  • Free Wi-Fi anywhere — airport, hotel lobby, shopping centres, conference centres, public
  • Big Brother — so many security cameras that can see your keyboard while you enter your passcodes.
Trezor & Ledger Nano
  • Your Laptop + Tablet
  • Your Mobile (Cell) Phone
  • Your Email
  • Any Apps or Synced Cloud Storage
  • Write it down duplicates of your seed and keep them in two different safe places
  • Break down the seed into 2 or 3 parts (ie. 2 x 12 words or 3 x 8 words) and keep them in separate safe places. This way, no single person has your full seed.
  • Global Roaming before you leave home. Please check prices as some are just ridiculously expensive and it may be cheaper to buy a pre-paid international data Sim card before you leave
  • Buy a local Sim Card with data: Usually the cheaper option, especially for extended trips.
“The NSA has built an infrastructure that allows it to intercept almost everything. With this capability, the vast majority of human communications are automatically ingested without targeting. If I wanted to see your emails or your wife’s phone, all I have to do is use intercepts. I can get your emails, passwords, phone records, credit cards.” Edward Snowden
