I want a list of wallets supporting BIP 39 seed.
And that they should not be vulnerable to any hack risks because I don't want to lose my funds using BIP 39 method. Just testing at first to see if I'm fine with it for future use.
Links are preferred.

The most popular hardware wallets (Ledger, Trezor, Keepkey) support BIP39 but I guess that you are not interested in buying any of them. As for the software ones, I would recommend Electrum but it only allows to import such seed. If you want to generate a BIP39 seed then use this website while being offline.

If you are going for Hardware Wallets then you can try out Ledger as they support Bip 32,39 and 44 versions for the generation of seeds. Electrum doesn't generate Bip39 wallets but allows you to import Bip39 wallets generated from Ledger. After entering the seed words, click on "Options" button and select "Bip39 seed" and you would successfully import the Bip39 wallet keeping the derivation path as default specified by Electrum.

Apart from these, Bread Wallet uses Bip39 support if you have an IOS based mobile and I also assume "Bither" supports Bip39. (though not really sure about this). You could try either mycelium if you are going for a mobile based wallet that supports Bip39. Summarising these,

[1] Hardware Wallets
  • Ledger Nano S
  • Trezor

[2] Desktop Wallets
  • Bither
  • Electrum (you could import Bip39 seeds in them)

[3] Mobile Based Wallets -Android
  • BRD Wallet
  • Mycelium

[4] Mobile Based Wallets - iOS
  • BRD Wallet

Then software wallets are probably not for you... or hardware wallets... you're probably going to want some dice or a coin, a knowledge of decimal/binary to hex conversion... and some paper. Then go read up on generating paper wallets. Tongue

If you are focusing on your privacy I suggest you use Wasabi wallet from here https://wasabiwallet.io/

This is not the same as electrum wallet where all of your addresses expose into random Electrum servers.
Wasabi has unique features like coin control and they are focusing on privacy but the problem they are not supporting BIP39 seed. If you want to use this by sending your bitcoin to this new wallet is a good choice and it's recommended by our admin theymos.

I'm currently using this wallet and I don't experience any issue yet.

@2double0 Have you tried cold storage? Almost all desktop clients are vulnerable to hacks depending on the system security, not just bugs in the code.
Maybe you're thinking about Electrum, you can't be hacked using Electrum, you can be hacked by downloading fake versions of it; but if you ever installed a fake version in the offline machine (cold storage), the hacker will not be able to acquire your seed/keys.

[just about 8 reports here in the forum versus tens of thousands of users]
Good set-up or caution is the key.

iOS is of no use to me, so only Windows and Android preferred. I'm not interested in purchasing any of the hardware wallets as of now as I'm currently looking for better online/offline but smartphone/PC/laptop based options for this. You helped and I'm very thankful for the same, but I want to know that are these Android wallets able to import BIP 39 seed?

Thanks brother, I will surely try to look for more options to save my privacy and funds both at an extreme scale. But I'm currently looking for wallets only which I can use over my smartphone and yes, I will not import any seeds/keys when online and remember to keep my smartphone out of the reach of WiFi or mobile data. I always use official sources to download any/all the crypto related software as I'm aware of all the hacks/thefts happening every now and then.

Yes, mycelium and Breadwallet allows you to import Bip39 seeds. Apart from these, coin.space android wallet will allow you to import the bip39 seeds. But even though they have been listed as legit bitcoin android wallet in the bitcoin.org website I am not willing to recommend anything other than mycelium. They are one of the most trusted,robust and secure android wallets available to both advanced and basic newbie bitcoin users for storing the funds.

As most of the wallets available, they are completely open source and you can check easily for issues in the git page of the wallet. If in future, you are willing to buy a hard wallet like a trezor or Ledger you can integrate your mycelium app with it for signing the tx.

If you are concerned of desktop clients, I am afraid to point you out even to Electrum. With the ongoing phishing attacks happening by directing users to malicious electrum servers, it would be pretty simple to steal our funds if we are not careful in downloading the versions. Better verify the PGP/GPG key of ThomasV always before you start using them. If this seems to continue further, I would be moving off to Core in a pruned mode.

Mycelium definitely supports BIP39 seeds... Android version of Electrum does not (the desktop version will let you import BIP39 seeds tho).

Electrum desktop also allows you to create the Offline/Online "air gapped" setup relatively easily... and I think you can use the Electrum Android wallet as the "online" component for creating the unsigned transaction and sending the signed transaction

I tried Mycelium and I'm fine with it, thanks for the suggestion tho.
By the way, what exactly do you mean by saying "air gapped" setup? I'm not too familiar with that term.
Which of the methods is good to have? Phrase or private keys? And which of them can be done offline (I think phrase can be used offline for the wallet to be imported)?

-snip-
"Air-Gap" is the same as Cold-Storage, the idea is storing the SEED and private keys in an offline computer for Tx Signing and have an online watch-only wallet where the Master public key was stored to create and broadcast transactions.
Tx can be transferred via QR code, file or HEX format.

For the setup, it's the same as the link from my previous post (Electrum), you can use android phones too.

In addition to what a user posted above on the list of wallets compatible to Ledger, there is also a similar list for Trezor. Please see: https://wiki.trezor.io/Apps

Fun fact: Just realized neither Trezor nor Ledger list each other on their website as a compatible wallet. This is the very essence of competition Smiley
