The safest method is to store altcoins in a hardware wallet. If you do not have one use offline wallets and beware of phishing sites. Bookmark sites myetherwallet etc and use that to go to that site instead of using google all the time to search for it, this is where phishing sites come up and you might think it the genuine site and will give all the private keys to them. Also install and use Metamask, this warns you of phishing sites. Backup your private keys on USB and also write them down as well. If you want to check the balance use ethplorer, neotracker etc. without accessing wallets.

I have seen many have been scammed online with phasing mail or links  so I will suggest that you never click any link from email unless you are sure it's genuine mail.

Use proven electronic wallets. Never say your passwords and so on. Also make your email more secure. I think that the most important thing is never to lose our vigilance.

Even the most reliable password will not save you from keyloggers. This is part of the program or equipment that reads all the keyboard manipulation. Keylogers are divided into software and hardware. The first to protect the antivirus. Another antivirus will help to recognize and block phishing links, after which hackers get access to passwords.

Use a hardwer wallet, like ledger nano s, or trezor. Personaly I use ledger, I like it more and more as getting used to it. Also, always double check the urls of the websites, you open. There are copy websites, which look exactly as the original, the only difference is, that they are trying to steal your money.  Angry

Many of the recommendations below may seem obvious, but most crypto-currency investors have violated at least one of them. If you store the Crypto currency on the exchange, establish a separate e-mail address for each trading account. The mail address used for the exchange must have two-factor authorization; account recovery tools should be disabled. Use a unique email user name that is difficult to guess. Use for passwords all available characters. For each account, use a unique password. On the exchange site, use the protected browser mode ("incognito") and clean the history / cookies. Do not use the autocomplete username and password in the browser. The exchange must use two-factor authorization. Keep the recovery keys in a safe place. Keep on the stock exchange only those funds that are needed for trading. Run antivirus software on a regular basis. Never click on sponsored links. Always enter the URL of the exchange directly into your browser's address bar.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to protect oneslef in the space, for me I would suggest to be using hardwallet but the issue with hard wallet is that not all blockchains are supported and make sure you are using a standalone wallet or have a system sole dedicated to your funds

What is the best methods to protect altcoin from hacker?

KEEP IT OFFLINE. Simple. If you need it often, never share your private keys. For local wallets, put it in a virtual machine in order to isolate it from the rest of your machine in case your machine gets trojanned or hacked.

To protect my coins from hackers who are now starting to wander a lot. I store the data into a privacy-based software that is safely stored. I also store it into hardware so that it is not connected to the internet network. In addition, my goal to avoid storage in the software is to avoid the web that we can track important privacy data that I have.

just invest some money and buy a hardware wallet, you will not regret.
They are more than nice, and it is pretty to have one of them in where you can store ALL your cryptocurrencies.

Better always keep our altcoin or token on our wallet like myetherwallet. Its much better if we have hardwallet because its more safe but the most important thing is always keep our private key safe from others and not sharing it

Well altcoin is also useful and effective crypto that can help you, thats why if you earn every single altcoin make sure that you wont sell it until you didnt know the full details of it. And for sure many cryptocurrency diggers are into it, or definetly those scammers. For me, my opinion in that make sure that your altcoin you recieve or earned has a wallet and safe storage, and dont let any advertisements let into you. So you better to hold always your altcoin because it is really precious.

While reading the title I thought that this was about hedging but I was surprised that it was about hackers.
Generally speaking hackers are interested more of banks, financial companies, fonds and something similar that has a quite big capital.
You would better to read any book about computer security and it will be enough and of course you need to be careful and not to trust anybody.

Do you think that there are more crypto currencies in the industry, fewer scammers and hackers than in those you listed? It's no secret that in crypto currencies there is a huge capitalization, and, accordingly, it is full of scammers.

Protecting your altcoin means that you should be using the best possible wallets to store your altcoins. Also after you are done putting them in a wallet make sure that the wallet is very properly secure and that your private key is kept in a place where no one else can get to it. Then also you might want to think about splitting up your coins and storing them in multiple wallets

The best way is to install Linux, all operations are carried out only in this operating system. Never store your cryptocurrency on an exchange or online wallets. Better yet, if you buy a hardware wallet. I can only say and argue in terms of maintaining the security of altcoin accounts is only one way to keep the private key as good as possible

To protect your alternate coins you must secure a safe internet browsing environment. Make sure that your computer is free from different adware, malware, and spyware. Avoid phishing sites that greatly harm your computer. Update your antiviruses and keep your wallet safe. I just pay a lot of attention to the security of my computer, and I also try not to store coins on crypto exchanges

There are several web browsers that offer better privacy than the standard browsers that mainstream use. The Brave browser source is a great tool for blocking ads and tracking applications. The platform also uses bitcoin incentives to create a better experience. All exchanges and wallets claim that they take security very seriously and implement all the necessary security technologies to prevent violations and unauthorized access

Never to use and open the digital wallet to avoid the phishing of account details and of course aside from that it is a good practice that checking of token balance will be done by eth address only without compromising the private key in checking of tokens as we all know that digital wallet could sometimes be hi jack from someone else who had a great knowledge in website hacking but so far the team dev for the website could act immediately with the likes of this problem that arises.
