Can anyone recommend me safest wallet ? some wallet that is having e-mail confirmation protection ?
The safest wallet is a desktop wallet. I recommend that you use Electrum if you want SPV or Armory if you want a full node. Both can be used in the safest manner which is having a dual computer setup, an offline computer and an online one. The offline computer signs the transactions while the online computer is only able to lookup transactions and create the unsigned transaction. Because the online computer doesn't have the private keys, if it gets a virus, the virus can't steal your Bitcoin. The offline computer is unable to connect to the internet so if it somehow gets a virus, then the virus cannot communicate with the attacker to steal your private keys.

Coinbase lets you enable 2fa when sending bitcoin. So do BitGo and GreenAddress. All are browser based bitcoin wallets. I am not aware of a desktop wallet with 2fa. If you really are serious about safety consider using the MultiBit HD desktop bitcoin wallet with KeepKey or Trezor to store your private keys offline.

I wljld recommend electrum and trezzor. I have not read any feedback about ledger wallet but I heard it one of the safest wallet as well. Coinbase is an exchange site but interms of security they offer a good options on how to secure the account.

You can use many wallets out their you can check the Google what is the safest wallet. You can use some of the safest wallet I know.

📌 Coinbase - (online exchange)
📌 Blockchain.info - (online wallet)
📌 Electrum - (software wallet)
📌 Ledger or Trezor - (hardware wallets/dongles)
📌 Paper wallet or other cold storage

I list some of the wallets that I know that is safe to use. It up to you which one you will use and if you read some threads about the different wallets and their is some negative comment about the wallet, it is how others used that wallet and if they say that their wallet is hacked maybe they used the phishing site. Sometimes we never knew that the website we enter is a phishing site so I suggest to double check the website before loging your username and password.

📌 Blockchain.info - (online wallet)
Please don't use Blockchain.info. Their software is incredibly flawed and buggy. People have lost coins because of their incompetence.

Blockchain.info's hacks were certainly not a result of phishing or anything similar. If anything, people should just downright stop using any online wallets. They have way too much attack vectors as compared to even a desktop wallet.

Paper wallets are technically not wallets since you just store your private keys on it but you can't spend it without using an actual wallet. And that actual wallet is what makes a difference between getting hacked and not.

This recomended wallet for you :
1: Paper wallet or other cold storage. A paper wallet is simply a document that contains all the information you need to generate the bitcoin private keys you need.
2: Ledger or Trezor (hardware wallets/dongles). These dongles both make the best bitcoin wallet list because of their safety and mobility. Plus, they're good enough for professional investors.
3: Electrum (software wallet). Electrum is a popular, free storage option in the bitcoin community, and is one of the most, if not the most, well-respected desktop storage apps out there.
4: Blockchain.info (online wallet). Exchanges are ripe pickings for ambitious hackers.
5: Coinbase (online exchange). In here you not only can buy, sell, exchange and trade bitcoin on Coinbase, but you can store your bitcoin in a wallet there, too.

I recommend using a paper wallet so you have a physical backup of the private key. Thanks

Online wallets are not at all a safe one to find have the funds at all. Especially people having fund on Blockchain, MEW and trading site wallets are hacked many times but the hackers.

Please follow these if you are using the blockchain wallet.

Don't connect the VPN plug in or VPN software in computer while you looking into blockchain.info URL.
Always use the URL perfectly in the address bar.
Don't surf using Google search engine to log in to wallet.
Avoid saving the wallet identifier and password in the any computer.

if your URL turns as blockchain.onion Don't log into that

Secured hardware wallets are: Trezor and LedgerNano s
Best Desktop wallets: Bitcoincore, Multibit and Electrum


Keep safe your private key and wallet.dat file to avoid the hacking attacks.

I would say it is most likely Bitcoin Core. At least when it comes to hot wallets.

Website wallets are a definite no. They aren't really wallets in the first place, they are banks.
If someone controls your private keys, it is not your Bitcoin.

Web wallets or any wallet that you have to login with email/username and password using websites are not a safe. Desktop wallet is safe but it can be vulnerable to malware and can steal any information on your computer if its connected to the internet. But you can do an offline transaction with some desktop wallet using electrum so it would be the safest way of using desktop but its time consuming.

But Hardware wallets are the safest wallet, it can't be infected with malware even you inject it to an infected computer, so you're totally safe, but the downside of using it is you can't use to send if the HW lost, so you have to buy a HW again and recover your funds using your 24 seed. Or you can import your seed to any trusted wallet so you can use it in sending but this is not recommended the wallet might be compromised.

Do you mean Two Factor Authentication? It's not possible and probably will never be as MEW is completely client-side. In the end, this makes MEW even safer.

Here is a good explanation on why: https://myetherwallet.github.io/knowledge-base/security/turning-of-2fa-on-myetherwallet.html

The safest option is a hardware wallet which you keep offline, in a secure place. That way there is no risk that your account can be hacked, your keys stolen and your bitcoin whisked away. But, if you lose the wallet, your bitcoin are gone, unless you have created a clone and/or kept reliable backups of the keys.

I suggest to use Electrum, encrypt wallet's file with good password and upload it into the cloud (preferably on multiple services).
To eliminate malware risk, especially for large transactions, burn DVD with LinuxMint and boot from it in LiveCD mode, download Electrum software and your wallet from the cloud, make a transaction and restart your PC.

No, that is not correct. In case of hardware failure or similar, you can:
a) Import the seed to another wallet which is compatible with the HW's seed.
b) Use derivation tools to get your private keys of addresses that hold funds. Import these keys elsewhere and you have access.

In the case that you've described, these wallets would have a major downside if you couldn't do anything if you lost/damaged them. That is simply not the case.

Op didn't specify the wallet for which particular coins is looking for, although i will answer based on the one am currently using that require email confirmation which is Blockchian.info that is mainly use for Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum.
Do not use web wallets. Yet again, horrible advice here.

.. upload it into the cloud (preferably on multiple services)..
No. Never upload wallets to the cloud. That's a horrible idea.

The security of a hardware wallet is about the same as a cold wallet. Because the hardware wallet is essentially a cold wallet category.

From the code perspective, these are closed source wallet even sometimes it is better to open source of cold purse, because there is no outside programmers to help review code, in the past some hardware wallet has had one or two lower holes.

Web, desktop, cold wallets are all the same not secured as long as if  it is not being take good care. but basing here on this forum we always have an update about Bitcoin core or electrum though to install it you have to follow some codes and I believe it is good enough as storage of your crypto. Maybe you can ask admin theymos directly of what can he suggest the best wallet since admin theymos own a lot of crypto.

Price must be always right.

I would disagree. Cold wallet setups differ greatly. Everything that is not usually connected to the internet is considered as one, but the security of those setups is not equal.

Completely wrong.
