Vital rules to keep you crypto safely when using a crypto wallet
Always buying hardware wallets from official sources, not from secondary market.
Always downloading wallets from official websites. DON’T search it on search engines!
If you want to find a wallet for your mobile, go to their official website, and click on given link to download from either Apple Store or Google Play. DON’T search to find mobile wallet because there is risk to find fake ones.
Verify a wallet you downloaded. This step is important to make sure you download a legit wallet, not fake one.
Always back up your wallet, and try to recover it before using it to store your crypto. Why? If there is mistake in backup process such as typos when writing down mnemonic seeds ie., you won’t lose your coin
When you create a wallet (after installation), make sure you do it offline. Software wallets are not cold wallets but this step increases safety for your coins.
Set up a strong password for your wallet. It’s important to prevent unnecessary access to private keys of your wallet.
Keep your keys, your wallet password safely and secretly. If you lose keys, wallet password can not save you!
DON’T store private key, mnemonic seed, wallet password online (in email, cloud storage, whatever online platform)
