Hello, if i leave my PC and someone can acess my wallet from it and transfers my BTC to himself, would i be able to get those coins back if i have a made a backup of the wallet and saved it on another USB for example? Or how can i be sure i can keep all my BTC safe without someone else being able to get in contact with them?

This is just a WORST case scenario. Will most likely not happen.

Thanks in advance.

No you can't get them back afterwards.
Encrypt your wallet so people can't have access.

Almost all of the wallets have a built in encryption option. It's when you set a password. Simple as that  Tongue

I just make sure I set a password within my wallet so that when sending coins you must enter this password for those coins to be passed on to the desired location. You should be fine then.
