Hi all,

I want to encrypt my private key on myetherwallet, however I don't know how. I've already looked in the help section and tried downloading their app and following the instructions they listed, but when I exit out of the app and go to myetherwallet.com and go into my account it still says the private key is unencrypted.

Im afraid that someone could be entering random private keys and could eventually land in my wallet.

Could anyone tell me how to encrypt it please? Or is there not a way to do so?

Do not worry. No one can find your private key, if you keep it secure.
