You can try a few option :
  • Save the key at flashdisk
  • Make a rar for your file and encrypt the file
  • Change the extension file of your rar file ( You can get double protection)
  • Print out your file to a paper.
I really like the option of "Rar File" you can get more protection with double protection "Password Rar" & "Changing the extension file"

Education is the best way to protect our assets here in crypto. Cyber criminals are all over the space now and if you don't know how to even scan your pc then you are doom to be a victim at one point in time. Educated ourselves, there's a lot of tutorials/helps even here in the community so I will advise everyone to really take the time to learn and practice everything we learn from this forum.

Once a computer is connected to internet, then it is vulnerable to viruses and malware. We need a reliable anti-virus to prevent them to enter our computer.

In connection with these, we need also to protect our wallets passwords and security keys. As much as possible, we need to separate our files with our accounts credentials into an isolated offline computer. An offline computer should not be connected to the internet from the beginning of time.

The worst thing is that it is not known what viruses can exist and hackers have loopholes in your computer. And if you are chosen to attack you do not go anywhere. If you break the big exchanges that spend huge money on protection. It’s easy to hack your stove.

Worlds Simplest Cryptocurrency Wallet

The internet is really complicated, I have received dozens of emails every day from winning programs, inviting investors, ... I think they are deliberately installing something into my computer through the My mailed link. This is definitely something that is harmful to your computer, possibly a virus or can read data from your computer. Be careful

I am using an antivirus which have anti keylogger option to prevent sending information typed with the keyboard of your pc to hackers. I always hold my tokens in hardware wallet as those are fully safe from any hacker attack.
Anti-viruses come with their own disadvantages too. I had one anti-virus which eventually turned into a virus itself when it got outdated. I think the most safest way to protect ones computer is to take precautionary measures with the type of links and files we follow and download respectively. Some links and files lead to phishing.

If we use computers in making transactions, of course security is the main thing. Therefore it is obligatory to protect it. Actually there are many ways to protect it and everyone must have different ways to do it. For me, I only use antivirus, which many people usually use and until now my computer is still safe. And there are still many real ways to protect our computers.

These antivirus programs may not catch the programs that use your computer for hidden mining, which has become one of the biggest problems.

If you see that your laptop has become very slow, but you know that everything is OK with the hardware, probably, the best variant is to make a visit to a specialist. He will find the virus or the infected stuff that can take part in this hidden mining.

I personally use an antivirus and still do so well, but still think to replace the antivirus with a cooler one to be completely sure of its security, and then heard that sometimes hackers steal the keys.

We need double protection , one from viruses and other from hackers. Both are active with internet access. Viruses can be controlled by using antivirus but hacking is more difficult to protect. Formatting the computer and not saving any personal details of bank account and other online wallets can minimize the risk of hacking.

Careful with links from emails. Also avoid downloading anything and everything you see online. Most of them have been programmed with keyloggers. Malwares are easy to detect as they tend to take over your browsers.

I have never downloaded a special protection program for crypto like that on my computer, because in my opinion the most important thing to protect our own wallet is to keep our private key properly, and don't tell anyone about our private key, and avoid all phishing things site

The more third-party wallets, apps we download and install to use, the more risks we take ourselves. I totally agreed with you that keeping private keys safely is enough to protect our funds. Of course, computers need to have protections from threats and we should spend small funds to buy and install reliable internet security / antivirus softwares. I suppose to install internet security softwares, which gives more advanced protections.

I myself only use antivirus avast to protect my computer, there are no other programs, my advice is that we better download programs that are clear and from well-known webs so that we avoid dangerous viruses

My last computer was serious damaged by virus and I lost quite great number of information. The computer I have now hasn't really had issues, but I still want a good anti virus for it. I don't trust the one I use now. How good is the avast you talked about please?

I often use copyrighted software and install antivirus software.  Most of my storage passwords are encrypted with Kaspersky (my antivirus software).  I feel safer when using them.

important and must be, there are many ways to protect our computer, can install a strong antivirus, not carelessly plug in the flashdisk that we do not know how the flashdisk, do not access dangerous sites, the most dangerous is when our computer is attacked by cerber virus , it will be very dangerous because our files will not be opened, because it was encrypted by someone who made the virus.

Can someone tell me what program they use to password protect their laptop?  I do not do this as i heard this process is not that simple.  I heard there is either veracrypt or bitlocker.  Are those the only 2 options or best 2 options?  If so, which do you choose and with it, does that mean a thief with access to your laptop cannot get into your laptop and store anything in it like trojan unless they have the password?  Because say someone installed a trojan in your laptop while you are not there for a bit... let say its just a friend who did it b/c they know you have crypto... that is dangerous.  Any advice here? 
I use Kaspersky, it is not only useful as an antivirus but it can also secure networks, passwords, etc.
I think you also need to try it, so far I feel comfortable using it compared to other programs

The best protection for your computer is the use of a safe operating system that is resistant to viruses and hacker attacks. Such a system is currently Linux Ubuntu. After I started using it, I stopped worrying about viruses and hacking my computer every day.
