News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

I like all smart investors keep my savings in cold storage. Leger Nano s.

So reading from our good forum I experimented and opened an electrum wallet on my tablet. I opened a watch only wallet using my deposit address. The same address i use weekly for savings.

I found my savings. Does this create a security risk? If anyone got hold of my address they could see what i have.?

Thanks Peter

No there isn't a security risk. All transactions and addresses balances are public on the blockchain anyway. With a watch only wallet, nobody will be able to spend the coins and only see the balances which they could already do if they knew your addresses.
