How to use WEB wallet to not fail like me.
Blockchain.info is pretty reliable in terms of not gettin hacked, but they had technical difficulties in past.
So overall there is no online wallet that is secure and reliable. You can always be your own bank and choose software wallet like multibit or electrum etc.

Is it safe to assume the best wallets are the core wallets?

As long as your computer have no malware. The hardware wallets are the only one that are truly safe, I suggest investing in one.
But many people still aware about this, they think because web wallet are easy to using doesn't it best safe to secure their money. For me, invest buy hardware wallet its worth because it is for saving our money forever.

For using MEW you can use some addon on your browser.those addon would help you from getting out the pishing site. MEW already support some addon and they also tell us to install those add-ons for our safety. as a reference:



I am using this addon: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/cryptonite-by-metacert/keghdcpemohlojlglbiegihkljkgnige

It is better to store coins in offline wallets (cold wallets). For example you can save your private keys in password-encrypted files and backup on USB, paper, etc. Alternatively you can buy a Trezor or Ledger hardware wallet.

Then you can use coinb.in (in the case of bitcoin) or import the private key into MEW (ethereum) or download the clients (bitcoind and geth) to generate transactions only when needed.

If you still want to use a web wallet, make sure to check the URL (it is better to bookmark the URL or type it exactly) and the SSL certificate (click on the lock next to the URL bar) every time you use the wallet. If you use Windows, make sure to use anti-virus software to avoid viruses that can steal your bitcoin. If you use OSX or Linux you probably dont need this. In addition ignore all emails or social media messages that ask for your private key. This is a phishing attack that tries to steal your bitcoin. You never need to send your private key anywhere, apart from when you import it into a trusted wallet.

You need to make sure you are logged on to the real (authentic) site.
Then, you must be mindful of prop ups asking for unwarranted details.
You also need to install anti-spy, among others.
Save your private keys securely.
Don't use easy-to-get password.
Use two-factor authentication, if possible.
Do not reply suspicious messages asking for any info.

I would rather use a hardware wallet instead of a WEB one. It's very easy to  compromise your PC if it's your work station connected to the world web.

- Advantages of wallet Wallet:
Enhanced security features, such as 2-step verification.
You can choose whether your balance is reflected in your local currency.
The user interface design is intuitive and can be easily navigated.
As a security measure, Blockchain automatically creates a new wallet address after each crypto transaction.

- To protect yourself against future incidents, you should remind yourself of the following:
Disconnect immediately if anything is different from the one you are accessing (for example, an unsecured connection message).
Make sure the site you visit has a secure encryption icon. Especially the websites that you send personal information, money (eg ETH, Bitcoin, trading platform, e-commerce site ...) must always have encryption symbols to ensure information is secure.
Limit use of web-accessible wallets such as MyEtherWallet, which uses add-ons like MetaMask or wallet applications like Eidoo. Still, it is possible for these wallets to be compromised but still safer for MEW.
If you still want to use the MEW wallet, you can view the MyEtherWallet User Guide on your hard drive and offline.

Bookmarking the website is easy, simple and safe.

It only take few secs to check the website if there are some unwanted characters or misspelled letters because some letters contains dots so check it thoroughly.

But if you don't want to feel safer, use a hardware wallet.
