Crypto and Internet Security

One of the first steps to consider in safeguarding your Cryptos is making sure your Internet Security is very safe and strong and this trickles down to the kind of Crypto exchanges you use.

How It Works

  1. Use Good Passwords: Most times using a seemingly weak password is an Internet Security and can be considered porous which may lead to unwarranted access. So the solution is to use good passwords, and these are usually lengthy in nature, in fact the lengthier the better and ensure you don’t share them.
  1. Use a Good Password Manager: Password managers offer the option of generating random passwords which are complete gibberish. If you have a good password manager and can make sure to remember the one password to unlock the manager, you won’t need to worry that you haven’t a clue what your other passwords are.
  1. Credit Card or Bank Account Information: It’s advisable to not store your credit card information on websites. Should the website get compromised, hackers can get access. Additionally, never type your credit card information into a website that isn’t encrypted. Don’t participate in Social Media Quests rendering you to drop your account numbers for a Giveaway
  1. Enable Two-Factor Authentication: Please make sure you enable two-factor authentication anywhere and everywhere you can, especially for email and anything financial-related. A sophisticated hacker can potentially get around 2FA when the code is sent via email (especially if the victim does not have all of the above recommended security practices in place).
  1. Be careful with WiFis and opt for VPNs: For generally being security minded, some other important basics include locking your home internet with a strong password and enabling a separate guest wifi. Additionally, be cautious when joining a wifi. Most security-minded crypto enthusiasts will create a VPN (or virtual private network).

5 Principles for Securing Crypto Wallets

Here are several key principles to secure your wallet

1. Use a cold wallet

A cold or hardware wallet is a secure way to store cryptocurrency offline. A cold wallet is a device that is securely encrypted and stores your private key. Since a cold wallet is not connected to the internet, it cannot get hacked.

2. Have a secure internet connection

When making crypto transactions, use a secure, private internet connection. A virtual private network (VPN) offers extra security by changing your IP address and location to keep your browsing activity confidential. Do not trade crypto using a public Wi-Fi network.

3. Encrypt your wallet

Encrypting your wallet involves putting a password in place before funds can be withdrawn. The password should be strong, containing several types of characters. Keep your password in a secure place if you forget it, you can permanently lose access to your money.

4. Change your passwords regularly

Use a strong, complex password that does not contain any personal information. Each account should have a unique password, and you should change your passwords every six months. If you have multiple wallets, use separate passwords for each of them. You can also store your passwords in a password manager to keep track of them all.

5. Back up information

A backup wallet stores your wallet data in a safe place. If you accidentally delete something or lose your computer, your wallet will still be accessible. Backup your entire wallet regularly to save your most recent bitcoin addresses.

Overall Crypto Best Security Practises 

1. Securing your seed phrase : This is probably the primary way that you will be defrauded of your Cryptocurrencies!
