Maybe you visited phished website like what happened to me. I enter almost the same website as original Mew website and loss 1.5eth plus different tokens which have a overall value of $500. Now, I bookmarked the original mew website and continue to used P.K sometimes.

It's bad that you learn in that way, never use private key, better install metamask and always double check site address in browser.

My MEW got hacked and my tokens were stolen. I am very careful when putting my address on each bounty campaign and never sign up online which require any private key. I don't really know how I get phish or how hacker accessed my MEW. I learned my lesson and will never use private key again. Do you have any idea how I get phish? I got one in mind that a fake mew site does exist?


There's already a reminder on the MEW site that it's very  risky using your private key to access your funds. You shoud have installed MetaMask instead to check or if you are going to make a transaction.

I sympathize with you. I hope you have not lost too much. You should be more careful. It's your honestly (hopefully) earned money. I also use an extra purse to store large sums.

I think it is not easy fot your private key leaked. AND why you easily click untrusted link and put informtion on it?.
Well, i think this wil be great lesson so you must know what you visit and do it carefully?

I feel sorry for your loss.We're same mate, my MEW got compromised also last month and lost about $800 worth of token value all in all. I dont remember also sharing my private key to someone. Im always at right site also when trading and importing my private key.Im suspecting downloading a suspicious wallet app from scam ico I joined.
We need to learn to secure our coins better, hackers are getting smarter and they are learning new ways to access to our wallets and to our coins and the only protection that we have is our own diligence when it comes to making sure that we are accessing the website that allow us access to our coins and to have our computers free of viruses, if you have a big amount of coins then you need to make sure to protect your coins in this way.

Never give to anyone your private key.
When entering in a bounty campaigns because if they see that you give your private key they will open it and  they will get all your tokens.

But it is your turn to save you Wallet.
MEW is Safe when you have the private Key!

As you said, I guess you can go to the phishing website with the same interface as MEW, and you have entered a private key into it Sad There are now many fake websites MEW so need to check when import private key into any site calmly. And safest is to bookmark the MEW website to avoid phishing website.

Official site can be protected by the developer to protect their member as providing their own private key, but talented (foolish on the side) clone their site to phish members steal, so one advice is protect your private key by book marking the site when you create your wallet and watch video on how to check if you gat the right site, before putting your private key.
