Protect What’s Important

How to Keep Your Crypto Safe?

When it comes to storing cryptocurrencies the most crucial question is how to keep them safe. If you are looking for the best protection methods — you are in the right place! In this article, we will discuss all ways to ensure the safety of your crypto in the wallet so you can finally rest from all worries!

Use PIN codes and passwords

The password or PIN code should be complex and unique to you. That is not a good idea to make them too obvious like 1234 or 1111 because they will be extremely easy to guess.

Think of some significant date, year, or any other number combination that is going to be easy to remember for you — while difficult to guess for others.

Enable two-factor authentication

In addition to PIN code and password enable 2-factor authentication (2FA) for your crypto wallet. That is an easy-to-use yet extremely effective method of protection. With its help, your crypto will be well-saved with a unique 6-digit code that changes every 60 seconds and is only available to you!

In some wallets, you can enable 2FA for various actions. For example, in NC Wallet, a 2FA code is used to confirm withdrawals, signing in, changing settings, and many others.

Use biometric authentication

Your wallet will surely be safe — because to access it, the app will need to scan your fingerprint or even face. Very easy, reliable, and effective.

Apply additional protection methods

Some wallets provide their users with other protection methods. These can be:

  • Blocked and Allowed IP lists: to close or enable access to the crypto wallet from particular IP-addresses
  • Activity and history: to track active sessions and actions made with the funds
  • Limits: to set a limit on withdrawal or exchange of the crypto

Be careful and smart

Even when you enabled all protection methods on your wallet, it is still important to be careful out there. Follow the simple rules to always be safe:

  • Do not show or tell others how much crypto you have in the wallet
  • Never follow suspicious links sent to you by email or social media
  • Never scan QR codes from untrusted resources
  • Do not give others your password, PIN code, or 2FA Verification Code
