No matter if you use an external device or not, the Polkadot{js} browser extension is the best way to manage your accounts, as it has many advantages:

  • It provides better security than using the Web UI directly
  • Your browser won't "forget" your accounts if its cookies are cleared
  • The extension recognizes all known Polkadot scams and alerts you when you access a phishing site. This will help you protect yourself and your funds.

Note: You will still need to use polkadot.js to manage your accounts.

The Polkadot{js} browser extension is a plugin that you can install directly through the Google Chrome Store or via Firefox Add-ons.
