When you create a wallet you receive an email to your email adress. In that mail there is a connect link to your wallet. People are so stupid that they lose even they email adress

Depends on what wallet you use, most wallets dont need e-mail address.

If you want to really have a secure wallet adress you register it with a e-mail adress or maybe a phone number . Or you simply write on a piece of paper that details for login and wallet number

If you want to really have a secure wallet adress you register it with a e-mail adress or maybe a phone number . Or you simply write on a piece of paper that details for login and wallet number

But then you lose control over it, becasue if you change your email and phone in the meantime (or somebody hacks it) you can also lose access to it.

Right, but i mean to have a specific e-mail adress and phone that you are sure that you will never lose. Anyway if you have a little amount of btc in your wallet it doesnt matter this.

all these things are in the category of super risky bitcoin wallets and if you are using email it means you are using a third party to generate the bitcoin wallet which will also introduce a whole lot of risk of trusting a third party.

the only solution is cold storage that is done right, all other methods have some sort of risk, some low and some higher risks.

nothing to see here...

If you have a lot of BTC then its not very wise to tie it all to 1 e-mail address because its easier to hack the email addres than the wallet. So its very risky.

So at least use multisig with 2-3 and only 1 part should be e-mail based.

So are people still losing access to their wallets? I havent been looking at reddit that much lately, but it looks to me that less people lose their money now.

Did people got more intelligent lately?
