1. Use a secure wallet: Make sure to choose a wallet that is secure, such as one that has two-factor authentication, is open source, and keeps funds in cold storage.
2. Use strong passwords: When creating an account on your wallet or exchanges, use strong passwords that include letters, numbers and symbols.
3. Keep your software up to date: Make sure to regularly update all of the software related to your wallet, as these updates often patch security holes.
4. Enable 2FA (Two-Factor Authentication): 2FA adds an extra layer of security, so it’s important to enable it when available.
5. Do not store large amounts of coins in an online wallet: It is recommended to store the majority of your funds offline in a cold storage wallet.
6. Back up your wallet: Many wallet providers offer the option to backup your wallet, so make sure to take advantage of this.
7. Be aware of phishing scams: Phishing scams involve someone sending you an email that looks like it’s from your wallet provider asking you to click a link and input your login information. Make sure not to follow any links sent via email or text message.
8. Be careful with public Wi-Fi: Avoid using public Wi-Fi networks when accessing your wallet, as these networks are not secure.
