There is no reason to delete addresses, this could be very dangerous if you gave that address to someone and later on they paid or accidentally sent coins, they be lost forever. Not good.

If one private key leaked from the wallet, then you should assume that all the private keys are leaked.


  • Create a backup of your current, compromised, wallet.
  • Inform everyone that you've given your addresses that they should not send you any bitcoins until you've solved your security problem and provided them with a new bitcoin address.
  • Find and close the security hole that allowed the leak.
  • Create a new wallet.
  • Create a backup of the new wallet.
  • Send the entire balance from the compromised wallet to the new wallet.
  • Delete the old, compromised, wallet (keep the backup, just in case you need it in the future)

Yes indeed. But it will not delete address from network, and it is good as we know.
It will be just not listed on his new wallet after all those points.
