How to Protect Your Litecoin Wallet — The Litecoin School

Cold Wallet: These wallets are not connected to the internet…. Here are my suggestions on how to secure your wallets through the various wallet clients mentioned in my previous post: A) Online Exchanges There is no way to turn these wallets into cold ones because only the exchange has control over your private keys….Even though these website wallets will often require passwords to create an account to access your LTC, there’s not much else you can do to add security….Encrypt your wallet client so that the only way to access to your LTC is with your password….Having the address and the private key will allow you to recover your LTC if you accidentally delete your wallet….Seed Keys- Some wallets, like Electrum LTC, allow you to restore your wallet through Seed Keys.
