my Ether wallet is holds your Ethers and other Ethereum-based tokens but now a days biggest question surrounding us MEW is save ? If you have private key for that stored on your computer so can be stolen. if you avoid any problem so keep save place ,example write key letters in your personal Dairy and store your json key google drive .your can also connect your account to meta mask to avoid problems

-> you'll let your Json file to your Google Drive account ? Ever, ever do that !!!! Never leave your .json file online ! If everybody doing this, that's one of the reason why you're getting all scam x)

Using myetherwallet.com, i never had any address change issues. Myetherwallet is one of the widely used wallets by millions with confidence.
If you are unable to transfer ether from ledger nano, just use myetherwallet's online version without feeling scared and your transfer will be processed.
Make sure not to disclose sensitive data of your wallet so that you will be kept safe from hackers.

Ive been using myether wallet since last year and i dont have any bad experience using it so its safe my account never been hacked. just remember to book mark the real mytherwallet and check if its real website there are many site copying myether wallet to steal other peoples money .

All your private keys are stored at the Ledger Nano S. Any transaction is signed by the ledger and nobody see your private keys. Moreover MEW is very legit and the most usable ethereum wallet.

The use of MEW in everyday work is quite convenient and safe, the main thing is to add the original site to bookmarks, so as not to get to the fishing site and not lose your tokens.
If you have a lot of money - it's better to use some additional security measures, such as Metamask or a hardware wallet.

Your myetherwallet is safe to use. Don't share your private key to others or don't click on phishing link.

Use those bookmarks and only those.
Do not trust messages or addresses or URLs sent via private message. Always verify information w/ a secondary source.

Don’t click any link regarding anything crypto, money, banking, or a service like Dropbox / Google Drive / Gmail in any email ever.
And if the scammy clickbait was simply too irresistible for you, don’t enter any information on the page.
Never enter your private keys, passwords, sensitive data on a website that you were sent via message

Turn on 2FA for everything.
Go do it. Right now. Quit your excuses. Choose Google Authenticator over Authy. Don't use your phone number. Then, make sure your phone number is NOT tied to your Google account (look in privacy settings). Turns out, you and your BFF Mr. Hacker can "recover" access to your account via that number, completely destroying the point of 2FA.
PS: MyEtherWallet is client-side, meaning 2FA won't do anything in our case. 2FA is for ensuring the security of your password on a server.
PSS: Don't forget to cold-storage your backup words for these 2FA things. It's a huge pain when your phone goes for a swim and your entire life is 2FA'd. ?
For Token Sales: do not trust any address except the one posted on the official site.
Also,
I recommend going with unlocking Origin. If you are already using Adblock Plus, it does not hide Google Ads from you.
ONLY unlock your wallet when you want to send a transaction. Check your balance via https://etherscan.io/, https://ethplorer.io/

Lastly: use your brain
Think for a moment. Don't assume, ask. Don't blindly follow, question. If something doesn't seem right...if you feel like the luckiest fucker on Earth...or if you find yourself asking, "I wonder why I haven't seen this on reddit yet", there is likely a reason.

All the Best.

Also, there is NO Myetherwallet application for smartphone !

If you download an app called "Myetherwallet" or something on your smartphone, it's a scam and you'll get hacked !



So please stop FUD about MEW.

I thought Metamask is an additional security feature for MEW. I did not know they are 2 different things. Please can someone explain. Am clearly new to this.
