1. Use a strong and unique password – Choose a strong, unique password for your wallet that is not the same password you use for other online accounts. Enable two-factor authentication (2FA) if available.
2. Backup your wallet – Make sure you backup your wallet regularly and secure the backup in an offline storage.
3. Use a hardware wallet – A hardware wallet is a physical device used to store your cryptocurrency. It’s more secure than a software wallet since it’s not connected to the internet.
4. Research before sending funds – Before sending any funds to an exchange or wallet address, always do your research to ensure you’re sending funds to a legitimate source.
5. Avoid public Wi-Fi networks – Try to avoid public Wi-Fi networks when accessing your wallet or sending funds as these networks are often unencrypted and can be vulnerable to hacking or data theft.
