To ensure the privacy of your private key, I think you should buy external storage devices such as USB, saving essential private information on USB is very safe because if you do not use you will withdraw them from the PC so can avoid hackers.

One sure way to store your private key is telegram, and make sure you protect your telegram with 2FA to avoid unauthorized access to it, I have been using it for years and never had any issues with it

In order to protect your savings, it is enough to carry out simple precautions about which much has already been written here. You need to be very careful about this and not make elementary mistakes. Use special applications for safe operation.

Recently we often hear that someone mew has been hacked. As per my view, its happening because of phishing site. So we need to be careful and attentive when clicking on the links. To protect your private key from hacking i think we should write it on a offline paper and keep it safely. i think offline is  best way to keep private key secure.

Safety is overrated. Seriously, unless you just give away your keys to someone on purpose, there is a very distant chance of anyone hacking your wallets. Seriously, unless you own many thousands you are not a target.

I think for crypto enthusiasts their private key should be on a par with the heart or soul. I mean, seriously. It can not be lost in any case.

Yes, I agree with this, never give a private key to anyone. Because the private key is to open the wallet to store our assets. If this happens from now on, make a new wallet and immediately move all assets.

I think in some cases I have known the problem for private keys is the user who has it because the accuracy of the user is very important when opening access to the website. and don't open the wallet too often if you don't really need it because it could be because your private key is spread due to an error when entering

I thought that the rule for not sharing your private key with anyone is something that everyone should have understood so long ago. The problem of theft of keys from users computers after their devices are infected with a virus is much more relevant. It is very important to ensure that your computer is not infected with malicious code, because all valuable information stored on it can be stolen.

The best way is not to store the key in electronic form, but to print the private key when creating the wallet and store this sheet in a safe place.  You can also download jason file, but the password to it, too, don't keep in electronic form. And, of course, to have 10-15 MEW , although it is certainly not very convenient , but more secure.

In fact, you said absolutely rightly that it is better to print information only on a paper basis and store it in a safe place, because electronic media and digital formats have certain risks. and paper is best kept away from fire, and nothing more.

Well your wallet is where you keep your coin safe and it always important to protect it
 One of the best way is to protect your private key never give it out to any one even if it's your mentor that is very important
 This is for new guys like me
Never used private keys to access any of your wallet. I never used my private key to access my MEW because it's not safe. Always open your wallet with Json file or with password and also make sure to used Google Authenticator in some of your wallets. Paste your private key in excel sheet and stored it in some flash drive for only one purpose for storing sensitive data.

The private key is something that we must take good care of, keep it where we feel is safe enough and never tell anyone our personal key, thus we will avoid theft that might be done by irresponsible people. My advice is to use the Nano Ledger to store crypto assets that you have, because that seems safe enough.

You should write down your private keys on the paper and make sure that you wouldn`t lose it and nobody will read it or encrypt them with strong password and backup this file in multiple cloud storages in the case of data loss on your hard drive.

Private key is a prime factors in online virtuality or cryptocurrency because one if lossing anyone private key in mew wallet he might lost all.my friend lossing his private key hence he lost of all his altcoins, some ETH.
I also very much agree with the Private key is a prime factors in online cryptocurrency or virtuality therefore should be able to keep the fingers that are not responsible for, and do not let anyone else know then we could lose the entire hard results During this
