i also suggest to use  2FA 

Two-factor (2FA) is an additional security layer for your business – helping to address the vulnerabilities of a standard password-only approach.

When choosing an Exchange, suppose localbitcoins.com, it is necessary to have all the maximum security possible, because hackers are at the slightest fault to steal, it is always necessary to have an additional support layer, the 2FA is very good, as well as Email guardians, when it comes to money, security is better.

2 fa , private key, strong password, email notification, if you still afraid of someone hack it, try keep all in one folder ,and also give password on that folder. Don't forget use strong antivirus, update your computer defender security.  I guess suggestion above is more than enough, as long as only you can access it, so don't allow or let other people to accessed it.

Do you or anyone else know any other wallet that use 2FA accept of Electrum. As I know only the last has such feature which sure increases the security, but I would like to have it on some mobile wallet.

I hodl my bitcoins and do not need them daily. Thats why i use paperwallets to save my coins. I can use them if i want to. Another good option is a hardware wallet but i am afraid of getting it damaged. I can print my paperwallet how often i want to print, so i minimized the risk of damaged papers and loosing my coins.

What to protect your account on the exchange is required to put 2fa protection and if you can confirm the entry and withdrawal via mail. Of course, if you use MEW or a wallet cold on a PC then you need to keep your private keys, keystore file and seeds and keep this information on a notepad and on flash drives

The first is you need to secure the Gmail account, link you mobile and gmail in each other in case that might the hacker tried to steal some info and to know what happen in your account next connect your wallet to the gmail account to get the 2FA to more secure and be sure that dont give your password to anyone. Just need to be private nothing else.

Right, this is the essential safety factor. I also want to add, if you use 2FA on your Google email, don't forget to save your security code. This code is useful if you forget to bring or lose your smartphone.

For securing a wallet, you need to use multiple 2fas and complex passwords with lots of special characters (remembering them is important too). The best 2fa is authentications applications like Google Authenticator. Those Authenticators are almost impossible to hack!

Much better to install 2fa because you gonna secure all your important thing if you still afraid better to make a strong password so that the other hacker cant reach you. You need to secure all things you wanna protect because if someone steal it really depressing so make sure you make a strong security for you wallet

If you are using any of the good platform exchange you need to activate your 2FA, then save your password, also the secret key if ever your gong to have a problem with your 2FA, now if you are using any wallet like MEW, of course you need to save your Private key, password on you keystore file on documents, or put it in your USB as well is a very good thing to do also.

There many ways to secure your wa8, for example activate 2fa confirmation, and there is also e-mail confirmation when login from a deferent ip or deferent device, and about ERC20 wallet I recommend to use MEW and connect it with metamask to have more safety

You can use some wallet application who use MEW and import you key thene use a pin code and password in the application,when you want to send any coins or token they ask you for pin and password too.for me it's safe and secure

The title says secure your wallets, but you did not mentioned how to secure them,

Example Myetherewallet.com  as you did not mentioned how to backup the recover file. Yep some people pasted keys in bounties and airdrops sometimes as they were new to Bounties.

There should be an authentication for Myetherwallet, but the developer never doing it.

Exactly my thought, he did not mentioned anything about how to secure wallets. I was baited to this topic because I was hoping that I will have additional knowledge in securing my account.

He must have to do else the topic will be waste. I too thought while seeing the title to get more benefits in securing account, but while reading whole didn't found anything.

Wallets get stolen and lost all the time in the crypto world. It's a really common occurrence, but that shouldn't stop you from becoming part of the community. Just keep your passwords and keys in a safe place. I keep mine in..... I can't tell you that, but it is in a safe place. Find a safe or a deposit box at a bank would be a good place. You could even bury your passwords in the backyard. No one would ever find them there.

Nice article mate 🙂 those sure are nice ways to help protect yourself. What i do in addition to those is i use a PC entirely dedicted just only for cryptocurrency realated purposes. I do not open any kind of sites on that pc excpey for the most trusted crypto related sites. Also i never installl any kinds of softwares on it. this way i can avoid getting hacked. i have been doing that for 3 or 4 years and thus sofar i never have been hacked
