They can be hacked into those purses that are not protected by a hardware key. You need not be lazy and order yourself this.

In my own opinion, cryptocurrency wallets can only be hacked if you accidentally logged into a phishing site but aside from that, using wallets like mew is very safe for different investors and traders.

Cryptocurrency is the current craze among tech-savvy investors trying to make the most of its soaring price, but behind the scenes the world of cryptocurrency is rife with cyber criminals, cryptojacking and money laundering is everywhere. All you gonna do is just be cautious when you enter a site. Your Cryptocurrency wallet can't be hacked unless you have prevented it first. Online wallet services can be hacked if you can somehow have access to email ID or password of that guy. Web wallet services are easier to hack if the security isn't taken care of. Offline wallets are also nearly impossible to hack as they are stored on a computer which never goes online. The transactions are signed offline and then broadcasted on a different computer. I hope this helps you.

All wallets can be hacked, if your private key is known by someone else, another person or hacker will be very easy to open your wallet using your private key, and pshising on malicious websites opens up opportunities for hackers to steal your data.

Anti virus and 20 digit and longer password is your friend. Not sure if its 100% safe but its something to start with. Most people that got hacked seems to have non-encrypted wallet.

It's truly possible, there are many hacker that wants to steal your funds to gain money just remember hackers is everywhere anytime they can attacked. Hackers nowadays are very smart and determined to steal anything and you only need to do is be careful on what information that you give in any site or phishing emails.

I think it's true if email can be hacked, then all access that uses email is also potentially to hack, if the wallet mentioned uses email, then the wallet has the potential to be hacked

Yes cryptocurrency wallet can really get hacked because there are a lot of people nowadays could hacked in any security features, that is why it is not that safe to store all of your holdings in a single wallet.

If you have lost your password or key, your crypto wallet will not be secure. And it's not 100% safe when you store your wallet in your phone or laptop. You need to keep things safe.

Yes ,cryptocurrency wallets can be hacked even the almighty etheruem wallet/website get hacked all the time.
The easiest way to get hacked is clicking on every link that comes your way.
We need to be very cautious of our wallets so as to avoid being hacked.

Ofcourse there's always a possibility of hacking. For the users of these wallets, it is always advisable to double check the link of the site where you are and make sure it matches the original one. Phishing attacks are conducted by mimicking the visual layout of the site to fool the user into entering private keys.

As for the website, if the coding are done poorly and there are exploits and weak spots in the code, hackers can always find a way entering the systems and using it for themselves. A code that is well-maintained and a system that is always monitored can prevent these attacks to cause any damage.

No one is safe from the internet, especially if you are a well known person or you are involve in a money trading investment. People will always find a way to know or steal some information regarding on what or who you are, for them to use it against you. E-wallet is not safe from people who are like that, especially if it is lacking of security. Unlike physical wallets, e-wallets are not tangible, simply, they're digitized. In order to access them, you must access it through digital or simply with the use of computer. Computers of today are very prone to hackers, especially if it is lacking of security. So be aware of the sites you are accessing, you might dive in a trap that will cause you everything.

As for me it cannot be hacked because it has yhe strongest security because crypto currencies has a more potential in able to produce everything.. it security was fully secured by professionals because it was a huge market so that they think that no one can hacked by features.

No matter how much you worry and do not try to protect your wallet, you can hack it if you want.

Yes, of course it can happen, everything can be hacked, there is no perfect security, hackers always have many ways to hack other people's wallets. Everything depends on what you do and how you store and use your wallet.
As a user, you have a private key that you must take care of carefully and carefully when using it.
All you need to do is think before you click or use a private key when entering a website. (You might be caught in their trap if not careful)
Not giving anyone a private key because maybe the contents of your wallet can be drained out of it.

Technically, these wallets cannot be hacked the user compromises his personal info (private key, phone number linked to email, additional email used for restoring the password of the main email, etc.).
If you followed all the precautions to protect your credentials, you may sleep with a peaceful mind and not worry about your funds.

There is always some form of disclaimer notice or some terms of use to most wallet, we may not really know until a hacker or some smart dude if able to point out some vulnerability. As a general rule, anything that is online to hackable, it may not be easy to achieve

My point too, not just cryptocurrencies wallets, what is usually the crux is that the resources to achieve such hack may not be readily available to most hackers

To all thinking that it is impossible to hack their super-protected cryptocurrency wallet:

Obviously, as I have stated in my earlier post, the weakest link in crypto protection is the human element.
LOL, but it is true, that should be a lesson to all of us even if you take great care of your coins it is irrelevant if people know that you holding them, sometimes the best way to protect yourself is to just not tell anybody that your holding cryptocurrencies that way thieves have not a reason to try to look for your private keys when they are stealing stuff from you.
