You can check any address you want in any block explorer such as https://www.blockchain.info or https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC

But if you want to keep track of a series of addresses, you can use Armory:

There's probably other ways. Just google "watch only wallet" and research.

blockr.io used to have bookmark page ability exactly to do what you wanted (track balance addresses)
you just simply bookmark addresses from its explorer and they will be listed on a single page with their balances
but too bad the service is no longer around, closed coincide the BCH fork
I used it occasionally before and currently looking for similar site, not found yet
I've noticed blocktrail has bookmark feature too, but it seems to work only for registered user.
or.. You could write simple query json api to do it... use bc.info or other explorer api

i want to know if it possible to track address (want to see balance amount only ) .

also not work with HD wallet (that change address and give you more than 1 address )

in short words i have public address and want to check balance amount on that wallet how can do this .
if you want do something like that, simplest way is to register on web wallet
I'm not sure if you can do watch-only for HD wallet, because usually it's for single addresses not the whole wallet

Just to be clear, don't import any sort of information into a web wallet of any kind, not even master public addresses, recommending these kind of practices is simply not safe and I've read it around here before.

If I really wanted to do this the right thing, I would learn how to use Armory as a watch only wallet. This is the best suited wallet to do that, that I know of.

Why not? No one can easily derive the Master Private Key from your Master Public Key easily. Especially without having at least one of the child private key exposed, which you obviously shouldn't have done in the first place. Your privacy can be compromised but that doesn't fall under the category of being "unsafe".


Download Electrum and you can import your MPK or addresses.

Well call me paranoid if you want, but I don't see that as a safe practice. In general, the idea of seeds, or anything that can generate more addresses through a single hash, is a total mistake. Exposing your private keys to move funds from wallet to wallet is a mistake as well, just transact your coins from wallet A to wallet B. It may be too extreme of a view but that's me.
