Has any online wallet been hacked before?

Recommended Posts

No, I have never had a wallet hack before because I use very strong and strong passwords in my wallet to protect my wallet and I never share my wallet password with anyone.

My friend, most of these breaches that occur are caused by a lack of awareness in preserving the keys to the secret wallet. The security of the wallet is very high and I do not think that it is possible to penetrate it without obtaining the secret keys, so be aware of keeping these keys.

I have never heard of online wallets that have been hacked, but for me I recommend using hardware wallets, especially when dealing with large amounts of money because they are the most secure, and so you will not be afraid of your currencies being stolen.

Using one password for everything makes it easy for a hacker to steal your information or money. If you use several difficult passwords, it's hard to remember them. The eWallet is a tool to keep passwords safe and accessible. A simple password is easy to hack.

In fact, it is very difficult to hack a wallet, but there are many people who have lost their wallet and the balance in it by forgetting the password, so you have to be careful and make backup copies of your private keys.

I don't face yet. But i heard about some people that claim that lose thier money. So it can be possible that our can hack . But if our private key left then our account can be unsafe.  So it if can't make hack then can handle our account with our private keys. So make safe our account by key. So make right password which would be unique and not make any name base password with this we can hack and can lose our money.

I never heard anything about a wallet hacked.However, I can assure you that if you share your passwords or personal information with scammers you will almost certainly be scammed or hacked. Aside from that every wallet is very secure.

For that purpose hacker must be of some military grade  to hack a good wallet until a hacker has access to your private key in the keywords keep it safe you will never hack and use only a trust wallet. The hacker usually use your system to hack your data so use always good antivirus software that are paid.

Personally i don't know about any wallet which has hacked before but i have red about online wallets that these wallets can be hacked easily at any time due to connected with internet but i want to advise you that you should use paper wallets which have cold storages due to this these wallet can not hacke easily. These wallet protect our transactions and make them instant. I know Electrum wallet which is best to store bitcoins wih great ease.

I think more than one online wallet has been hacked before and it really affected the customers, this is why it is very important to make use of the private key so that no one can have access to your currencies except you.

I heard a lot about wallet hacking stories, but most of them were ignorant of the users of these wallets about the privacy and security rules or their leakage of information related to the wallet, there are comprehensive hackings that sometimes happen to a exchange site where the hackers steal the money that you invest in.

Hello my friend, unfortunately there are many attempts at theft and fraud in the world of digital currencies, so I recommend you to use a reliable wallet, preferably cold in the sense that it is not connected to the Internet because it is safer

I don't know of any online wallet that has been hacked or compromised but I know of wallets that were fake from the beginning and collected crypto currencies from many users and stopped working that is why I always recommend that you read reviews before using a wallet.

I do not know specific people whose wallet has been hacked, but every day I see a lot of posts talking about such fraudulent actions, but I think that the reason is not the poor level of security in the wallet or the intelligence of the fraudster, but I think that it is all in the hands of the user, either he made a mistake Somewhere or he set an easy password to crack.

There are several wallets that have been hacked before, the most recent one was a platform called Roll, the hacker was able to obtain the private key to its hot wallet and steal its contents — worth about $5.7 million.

It’s not clear how the attacker broke in and obtained the private key for Roll’s hot wallet. Hot wallets are designed to be connected to the internet to send and receive cryptocurrency, but typically only store a fraction of a cryptocurrency owner’s total reserves, given the inherent security risk of an internet-connected wallet. A cold wallet, or storage device that isn’t connected to the internet, is typically used for holding the bulk of an owner’s cryptocurrency for longer-term periods.

I have not heard of any wallets that have been hacked. But if there are some that are more reliable than others, for example Binance is in the first place. They use their KYC systems that offer us security when making our transactions.

It is possible to hack any online wallet if the security measures are low, so it is important to choose strong passwords, and to avoid giving our private keys to any unknown person or website.

Certainly, many cryptocurrency wallets have been hacked, and the main reason for this is the users' lack of experience and their lack of interest in their private keys, and some wallets do not have a high level of security.

Yes, I have heard that there are some people whose wallets have been hacked, so it is necessary to preserve the public key that serves as an address for the wallet and to maintain well the private key because it is considered a password for the wallet, so avoid giving the private key to anyone because then he will be able to Hack your wallet and steal your money from it.
I am always careful to protect my wallet and its two keys from being hacked.
