Install on USB, throw USB in some dark hole. PROTECTED.

Actually if you want to be 100% sure, you need to do/take few more precautions:

1. You need to be offline

2. And again - being offline while you are creating and saving your wallet.

3. Without going online, low format all computer drives after the wallet creation.

The easiest way to do it, is to make a full mirror of your HDD/SSD before going offline and wallet creation, then format all and then restore the mirror.

Sad but true, air gap is the safest way.

Security in the crypto world is very important. I think that you should have a separate device to store and work with crypto. And it should belong only to you. Don't let children play on this device)) Install good antivirus, antimalware soft and use reliable VPN services.

If you want it to be really secure and hack free buy a cheap laptop then keep it offline. Put a tough login password so even your wife will not be able to access it. Just connect it online when you are ready to sell.

With the most recent hacks, this is a hot topic. We at quantum are suggesting using XMSS to secure your wallet as we consider to do with ours in our new blockchain.

What is your take on securing wallets?

You can use paper wallet and hardware wallet I think mostly safe it is. if you use coinbase blockchain then also you need to always activated your two-factor authentication system via mobile phone number and access via e-mail address.

If you are using PC on your home and don't trust people who are using it with you then just create an admin for you and put a hard to guess password, for the other user then create guest files for them to use. As to keep your wallet safe while opening it to sites, then use bookmark to keep you safe.

Anybody having a physical access to your machine can compromise it in 5-10 mins.

Don't fool yourself about any admin and non-admin passwords. Just check Google and Youtube.
