No wallet is 100% secure except an offline wallet where you do the hashing on an abacus... Its entirely possible (likely) a 0-day exploit will be discovered and you will lose every bitcoin handled by your client...


No wallet can ever be completely secure. You can encrypt the hell out of it but the physical media you have it stored on can always become damaged. This is a great how to on making a decently secure savings wallet though. Very good information here. I will admit that I don't have enough bitcoins to even have a savings wallet yet but if I had any substantial amount of coins I would absolutely create a really secure wallet.

Hi,

I need some clarification, please.

Suppose someone steals my wallet.  What happens?
Is my file gone?
My file is not gone, but someone just copied it, set it up in his computer and transferred the coins  to one of his addresses?
How to I know that I was stolen?  When I try to send my coins to someone? At the next time I run the bitcoin client?

If someone steals your wallet.dat file (copied it presumably), the coins would be gone if he set it up in his computer and transferred the coins  to one of his addresses. On the next time you run the client your balance would be updated to show the newest balance. This is because the wallet.dat file holds the keys needed to spend the coins, and whomever gets the keys first can spend the coins first.

+1

1) Encrypted flash drive with separate os for your master wallet(s).
2) Unencrypted .dat files on cd, sd- or flash for relatives in case of ...

Only thing I would add is "Spread it out!". Don't keep all your BTC's in one file/wallet system.
Yes more annoying, yes more cumbersome, but the risk becomes allot smaller for every new system you add.

4/5 posts yay ....

Blockchain wallet is great.
I have mine setup with two factor authentication - password and sms authentication so if someone wanted to get into my wallet they would need both my password and phone.
