Been using myetherwallet for almost a year now and it seems ok. Haven't got any problem with it until now. Hopefully they will continue to provide a good service as what they are doing now. So don't worry, things are OK with MEW as long you keep your keys confidential.

As long as you are still holding your priv keys, never tell it to the others, not clicking on the phising link and visit the actual website then it's safe. So far MEW proven to be a safe wallet. For phising link, it's quite simple to avoid it. Put your pointer over the link then the actual destination address will showing up on the bottom left of your browser. Make sure the destination address is legit.

How about malwares? Keyloggers?
There are many people got hacked as well eventhough they never get phissed. If you are using your wallet by entering your private key, then you will eventually get hacked, no doubt about that. The only safe wallet is the wallet than even you dont know the private key. In this case the a swer is hardware wallet. Or atleast please use metamask and create new wallet there not importing your current wallet

MEW is a decentralized platform,its just a medium for use to use the blockchain technology easily,no one owns myetherwallet and if the hacker hacked mew thats the end of all the cryptocurrency because its not possible to hack myetherwallet without hacking blockchain's technology.

Hi, i have backupped my pvkeys on an usb stick. I wrote it also down on a piece of paper. My computer broke. I put a metal pin through the harddrives. I will not buy a new pc soon. So i wont check in on myetherwallet for some time. I cant click on phishing links. My question is : are my funds safe? Can myetherwallet get hacked? Can my funds dissapear even when i have no computer, hid my keys? Im to stupid to work with a ledger or trezor. Can something happen to it like with the parity/kill?

I think you are too panicked. most importantly you have made backup data when you want to leave the computer for a long time. MEW has been equipped with many features for convenience and protection. so, you do not have to worry, as long as no one knows your private key, no one can access your wallet. exception, the mew party who did it.

MyEtherWallet private key has a combination of 64 alphanumeric which it is security purposes to be hard guessing, still there's a slim chance that the hacker can get the exact combination as your private key, so it is possible that your account will get hacked.

Yes, the site myetherwallet can be hacked. And if after that you enter your private key, then hacker will use it. This is even a warning on their website. Just use MetaMask or an offline version of the myetherwallet. But even better is to buy a hardware wallet ledger nano for full protection.

If your private keys are safe and not hacked with phising or keyloggers than your funds are safe.
Dont use that usb stick with every computer. and nevery type your private key on public computers.

I don't think that anyone will encounter a problem such as hacking of myetherwallet if anyone haven't stored the necessary key information for access on the computer. Myetherwallet is one of the best wallet platforms, but that doesn't mean it will never get hacked. Only I don't see anything wrong from your point of view right now.

Your ETH tokens are not stored on Myetherwallet. They are stored in the blockchain which can not be manipulated due to its construction.

The only wy an attacker can steal your funds is by guessing your private key.

This is not even a matter of MEW, it is a matter of private key, no matter which wallet you are using if somebody else gain access to it, you will lose your fund, most people talk of Etherdelta and got their wallet compromised, it was because you link your private keys to the exchange and you get more vulnerable

if you still keep your private key and nobody knows about it, i think your assets will be safely stored in your wallet.
according to the already senior say here if still in doubt check in https://etherscan.io/ and enter your address.
may be useful for you. regards.

As long as you are still holding your priv keys, never tell it to the others, not clicking on the phising link and visit the actual website then it's safe. So far MEW proven to be a safe wallet. For phising link, it's quite simple to avoid it. Put your pointer over the link then the actual destination address will showing up on the bottom left of your browser. Make sure the destination address is legit.

How about malwares? Keyloggers?
There are many people got hacked as well eventhough they never get phissed. If you are using your wallet by entering your private key, then you will eventually get hacked, no doubt about that. The only safe wallet is the wallet than even you dont know the private key. In this case the a swer is hardware wallet. Or atleast please use metamask and create new wallet there not importing your current wallet

Thanks for the information. I do agree with you that hardware wallet is the best place to store altcoins like trezor or using metamask in case you don't have money to buy it. I also agree that there many ways for hackers to collect the wallet information like malwares and keyloggers but the problem is there's lot of people who still using priv keys to enter their mew and the most cases of people getting hacked is caused by entering priv keys on phishing site or clicking on phishing link and mistakenly put the priv keys instead of the address when filling airdrop or bounty form even ICO form. So far, to avoid malwares and keyloggers in my PC, i rely on Malwarebytes antivirus and sometimes checking the programs/services that running on windows task manager (If you use windows).

Yep, MyEtherWallet can be hacked. And you know what I would like to say? Blockchain can be hacked too. Everything can be hacked. Another question is - what resources are required to do this or that. For now it is safe. Just recommend you to use simple rules of safety and - one important thing - just dont tell everyone how much you got money or coins. Mayby this is the most important thing

I think your assets will remain in your ethereum wallet and will not be lost. I'm pretty sure of that, do not lose your private key and the second key because without it, I do not know how else you can have access in your wallet.

If your private key is not lost then your money is safe and you can put your money in a safer wallet, such as an Ethereum wallet or a hardware wallet, and I wish you good luck.

Keyloggers do not appear on the computer themselves. It is necessary to adhere to standard safety rules. Visit only checked sites and do not download unknown files.
Even better to buy one laptop only for working with exchanges and wallets and the second for surfing the net, entertainment and etc.

One of the biggest misunderstandings about myetherwallet is that people think it's some kind of wallet or app that stores your coin.
Myetherwallet is simple a graphical user interface that lets you interact with the ethereum network.

So technically, myetherwallet can never be hacked.

What really happens, is your keys get compromised and your tokens get moved to a different eth address.

Your keys can get compromised through phishing scams, malware and spyware, etc.

So if you secure your computer and your keys, then no problem.

The best policy is to be over paranoid, and it looks like you are doing that so I would say no problem.

Just be careful and you will be allright.
