Are you reffering to MyEtherWallet? If this is the case, we suggest using metamask to minimize the risk of phishing attacks. In addition to this, investing in a hardware wallet such as the nano-s or trezor would be a good option to minimize risk even further.

Best of luck.

Cryptocurrency and Wallet Security: DOs and DON'Ts
by cryptosec.info


DOs
[1] DO only store your private key(s) on pieces of paper or on a CryptoSteel, and store them somewhere no-one else but you has access to
[2] DO store majority of your funds on a hardware wallet or a correctly-made paper wallet
[3] DO only use a paper wallet if you're 100% confident that you can make one in a secure manner
[4] DO store only small amounts of crypto on your hot wallets(exchanges, software wallets, web wallets, etc)
[5] DO use secure and complex passwords on all your accounts; not only on your exchange accounts
[6] DO use 2 Factor Authentication on most if not all your accounts online. Your accounts having 2FA makes your accounts significantly harder to hack

DON'Ts
[1] DO NOT save your private key(s) and account passwords on a .txt file, a word document, on your mobile phone's notes app, etc
[2] DO NOT store significant amounts of cryptocurrency on your hot wallets, pretty much anywhere that you don't have control over the private key(s) and that could potentially be stolen by hackers
[3] DO NOT give away your private key(s) to crypto airdrops or to anyone else in general. Giving away your private key(s) is pretty much like giving away access to your bank account
[4] DO NOT click on exchange ads on Google or any other search engine (screenshot). There's a good chance that a certain link you see in your search result is a phishing link that could potentially steal your funds
[5] DO NOT re-use passwords on exchanges or any other website

If you are using a web wallet, bookmark the real website so whenever you visit it, just click it and you don't have to use search engine for it.

This applies for all types of web wallet (MEW, Blockchain.info, etc.)

Or better yet, don't use web wallets. Only use either software wallets or hardware wallets if you're planning on securing your long-term investment funds.

First do click any link that is not familiar to you this might be a phishing attempt delete them immediately, second make a copy maybe 6 copies of your private keys in case your phone was stolen or accidentaly broke.

Buy a hardware wallet. This is the best way to keep safe your funds. You can buy a hardware wallet from those wallets official websites. Trezor and Ledger Nano S are best hardware wallets.

Security has become a major issue in the market of crypto currency so one needs to ensure the security first. To secure the wallet, investors need to have a private key which must not be disclosed to the others. Investors can use 2FD verification systems to secure the wallet. The computer must be kept in offline, when you are not dealing in the market or you will keep your account close when you are absent.

One can keep the wallets in a much safe way with the usage of different security features that is available. In specific enabling 2FA is the best to go with the online wallets. Also before creating a wallet it is good to find the reputation of the wallet, as there are several scams in wallet service.

I would recommend you to use hardware wallet. They are safer and more secure. You can try using Ledger or Trezor. They both are really good.

The best way to defend against an attack like that (if your malware scanner doesn't detect the intrusion) is simply watching all transactions carefully, and taking steps to safeguard your assets so you know your data hasn't been exposed.

Ledger nano is great with it's features. You can use them. They are safe and keep your wallets secured. It's really hard to hack ledger nano. But for more safety, i would suggest you to do two factor authentication. It will keep your wallet safe from hackers.
