Despite Ledger's assurances of fragmenting and encrypting seed phrases across multiple entities, critics within the crypto community voice concerns over potential security risks, including data theft and privacy breaches linked to the requisite provision of email addresses and phone numbers. Amidst debates on self-custody versus third-party storage and the ever-evolving digital security landscape, Ledger emphasizes its service's optional nature, allowing users to continue managing their recovery phrase independently. This narrative underlines the importance of understanding and navigating digital security in our data-intensive world, where private key loss and third-party key theft are distinct possibilities.
