How can a hardware wallet be trusted?


In a [previous thread](https://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/8o7ylb/ledger_nanos_for_sale_at_copenhagen_airport/), people warned against hardware wallets not coming directly from the developer.

If that’s the case, how can you even trust wallets coming directly from the developer? Could Trezor/Ledger add backdoors, or what if it got intercepted in shipping? (Like those [Cisco routers](https://www.techradar.com/news/networking/routers-storage/photos-reveal-nsa-tampered-with-cisco-router-prior-to-export-1249191))

Mist Browser beta and Ethereum Wallet 0.11.0 preview


The Mist team has been working hard on a solution to balance decentralization with user experience.
While running a full node is important to the health of the network, we all know the weight of doing so on a consumer machine. Amazing services, like INFURA, can help you get connected immediately, but introduces new risks.
From the beginning, Ethereum Wallet and Mist beta aimed to run a local ethereum node, helping relay blocks and keep the pulse of the ethereum blockchain worldwide.
We are introducing a hybrid solution, that brings the swiftness of INFURA with the power and security of running your own Geth node. After connecting immediately to a remote node, your local node takes over all subscriptions and filters once it’s up to date.
Today, we’re making a soft release, starting with a 0.11.0-release-candidate version. Our goal is to stress test our code, collecting feedback and bug reports before deploying a release that gets pushed to all Mist/Ethereum Wallet users. If you’d like to help, please share your feedback in this issue: [https://github.com/ethereum/mist/issues/3979](https://github.com/ethereum/mist/issues/3979).

Finally, huge kudos to the INFURA team, which has been extremely supportive with this initiative.
