I think the problem is not the public address of the wallet. The problem is protecting your private key from hackers. Limit the use of private keys, if possible, use a private computer to use the wallet, and leave it offline when not in use.

Security must come from everyone and the more carefully it will apply to everyone to some extent can guarantee that you will not lose your coins.

 I use the well-known metamask, I don’t have a single key on the computer, I keep everything separate ... I try not to keep everything in one wallet but it turns out not to be enough) I was hacked it was a great lesson for me, so I try to accept all I have security measures .. above people have written almost all of the protection methods that exist today ... I will repeat the main ones: "beware of unfamiliar links, do not download anything before checking for viruses and do not store the keys on your desktop computer"

Be aware of scammers and fishing websites. If you have an anti virus software, you should only follow the instructions and launch your PC check up, at least every week. If you would follow these steps, you will be protected.

To protect your wallet with scammers you need to avoid trusting people who do not know you and do not just trust that especially if you earn a fortune in just one day.

the most important thing is to simply to keep in safe your private keys from your wallets  and do not enter them in your emails

even if you dont expose your private keys from public , you can still possibly get hacked because hackers are verry smart . they know how to open loopholes which can be used as an  entrance in order to attack you  while you are offline   . same as when you secure your emails .

no matter how you hide your email , there will still be a way that they can detect it but emails arent an effective way to stole somone's account but rather from username and password  .

the only way to minimize the risk of getting hacked is to not put funds that you cant afford loose  or dont put bigger amounts  rather because hacker tends to check if a user has a lot of balance   .  that will serve as thier target   .

Now that the price of the hardware wallet is very cheap, I still recommend using a hardware wallet to store valuable digital currency assets.

I store the private key in a word file and set the password for it. I access wallet services on a clean browser and always turn on antivirus software. I feel safe and I still have no problems with hackers.

Software updates are one of the most common security measures out there. You must use the latest version of the Bitcoin software irrespective of whichever software you are using. The updated software will keep informed about the latest security fixes. It will also safeguard your wallet features.

This is for those who use wallets with cheap transaction fee, such as ethereum based wallets.
There are some who cannot yet afford to purchase a hardware wallet. On that note, i have a suggestion on how your wallet can be safe from hackers. I have always noticed wallets that get easily hacked are those that are subject to public view.
Try as much as possible to have a separate cold wallet address that you do not copy and paste the private key, and neither do you share the address with anyone. You can use it to store most of your valuable coins.
Even if you want to transfer any coin or token to an address belonging to another person, first transfer it to your public wallet before sending it out.

It is best to work only with trusted people and do not download third-party files to your computer, + open unfamiliar and non-standard links from strangers.

Money loves silence, so of course it is better not to advertise that you have money and a lot of it, but in general it is very important not to keep your keys on the computer!

To protect your wallet form hackers, you must :

1. Using a reliable wallet, a secure wallet and trust wallet.
2. Don't using private or seed key to move your coin in your wallet. Try to use a wallet that not requiring private key or seed to transact
3. Don't save any personal information about your wallet in cloud storage, once your email or account hacked, it will be the end.

Actually there is no effective way to protect our wallets from hackers. To be sure your data must be safe, never enter a suspicious link, of course. Because with a dangerous link that will cause your wallet to be entered by hackers. Therefore, always be careful in the future.

I think that the cost of an hardware wallet is very low... if you invest more than 500 $ in crypto it's a really BAD idea not to use an hardware wallet because even if you stay safe there's always the possibility to make some mistake....with drastical consequences...

If you are using a web wallet, I recommend you to save the site address in your browser bookmarks. And never store your private key on your computer. All private keys should be written down.

a little advice from me, we also have to use disguises when using our computers, especially if we open our wallets.
I think it's good enough to protect us from hackers.

Unfortunately there are too much scammers that are trying to trick you and get access to your wallet. I have solved this problem by ignoring everybodys' dms on telegram and installing a desktop wallet instead of using MEW.
