Security of private keys and passwords is especially relevant in the crypto world. Blockchain technology is reliable and secure in general, but the security of passwords and private keys is the concern of everyone involved in the network.
There are millions of articles and guides written about security, and everyone has read and studied them. Many people start applying the recommendations right away, and some slack off and get hit in the pocket.
The security of your private keys and passwords is your own concern. As soon as you start your introduction to the crypto world and cryptocurrency technology, many people go to bitcoin.org. Where else to start your introduction to cryptocurrency but with bitcoin?
On this site it says in black and white - Securing your wallet!
This section contains detailed instructions and recommendations. Of course I've read them and applied them. But cryptozyma makes its own adjustments. Attention and caution weaken, a person relaxes his rolls, makes mistakes. Often the consequences of these mistakes bring material losses, pain and suffering.
I've heard many stories from my colleagues in cryptoworld about hacker attacks and theft of large sums of money in crypto. Heard, sympathized, shook my head. All these real stories are perceived as something dangerous but distant... Until you find yourself in a similar situation. that's when it gets really sad.
It's crypto-winter for everyone, and some are in the hottest crypto-leto. These people are hackers who don't care how much your crypto stocks have fallen, how hard they have earned them and what price they paid you.
These guys really don't care if the price of a token goes up in a week or a year. They hack into your computer, find vulnerabilities, and take your hard earned tokens to the exchange. They dump you without a care in the world.
Very often you don't even notice the loss right away, I noticed almost a week after it happened.
Antiviruses))) This is a separate topic of conversation.
Very often antivirus reacts to trojans when it has already done its dirty work. Real experience, real photos, real losses!
Keep your money in a safe deposit box, as they used to say in the demolished Soviet Union. Today the reality is different - protect your private keys as safe as possible!
Store your tokens better in a cold wallet!
And another thing that is almost beside the point, since we have already mentioned the word security. Beware of rash investments. As Trump once said - sometimes the best investment is not to buy anything:)
