Hi,
With an offline cold storage paper wallet can you check the balance on Blockchain.info and can you add that address to a Blcokchain Wallet, but still keep the Bitcoin offline?

So, could you use the Blockchain mobile App to keep an eye on the offline wallet balance?

Or would it mean transferring the offline paper wallet into a Blockchain Wallet for that to work? But with the risk of it being held online?

 Huh
Even if you use Bitcoin through Tor, the way transactions are handled by the network makes anonymity difficult to achieve. Do not expect your transactions to be anonymous unless you really know what you're doing.

You can add watch only address to your blockchain.info wallet.

Put this in your signature. You're likely to get posts deleted as it might be considered begging.

I think the OP is actually asking if there was a way to check the wallet without making it an online wallet.   Not receive coins.

As I said, add watch only address at blockchain.info.
