Please add an option to allow us to create a wallet offline or check the recovery phrase offline for higher security.
We want you to be able to generate and restore Daedalus recovery phrases while offline.
The biggest threat to wallet safety is hacking. For this reason, there are paper wallets and hardware wallets that can be managed separately from the net, and Daedalus also has a paper wallet.
However, the recovery phrase, which is the lifeline that should be protected from the threat, can only be saved offline, that is, in a safe state separated from the internet, and when it is generated/restored, it must be online and connected to the internet.
This is quite risky. Because hackers are becoming more and more sophisticated, and there is a risk of intrusion and data leakage even if everything is done, such as avoiding network sharing and installing security software. Even on information sites related to cryptocurrencies, we often see things that call attention to offline when generating or restoring.
No matter how much you keep away from the internet, you can only wipe out the security risks that you can only operate online when generating and restoring key points.
In fact, other paper wallets and hardware wallets can be operated offline when generating and restoring recovery phrases.
We would like to change the specifications so that Daedalus can be operated offline.
We do have the paper wallet which is for offline storage of ada. See Daedalus Paper Wallet
