The best security is to not participate in any ICO

The very important security practise is a strong password which is not used on any other website or account. This is the simplest rule, right? But still not everyody understand it's power.

What is your best Bitcoin Security practices?

From bitcoin.org:
[size=1.6rem]How are People Losing their Bitcoin to Hackers?[/size]To date, no one has been able to compromise the core Bitcoin network. Every major Bitcoin or cryptocurrency hack exploited vulnerabilities in third-party applications, crypto exchanges, or insecure crypto web sites. Third-party applications, crypto exchanges, and web sites make it easier for people to interact with the Bitcoin network.[size=1.6rem][/color][/size]

No online wallet, no funds on exchanges, only use decentralized exchanges like Shapeshift, no hardware wallet (you really don't know what's going on there).
Firewall outgoing connection monitoring.
Online wallets, or e-wallets, allow you to buy, sell, and store your Bitcoin. If your e-wallet provider is compromised, your account’s password and private key would be at risk, and hackers would be able to transfer money out of your account. This isn’t a vulnerability in the Bitcoin network, but in the third-party application.

Store bitcoin in wallet and not exchange platforms. Save your secret keys on a hard drive, external if possible. Install a strong antivirus on your system to prevent hack. Do not save passwords on your computer.
It’s unquestionably an eventful time in the world of cryptocurrency and blockchain. If you want to participate in the space, just make sure you’re willing to accept the associated risk and to minimize that risk by doing everything you can to secure your digital assets and identity.

Always backup to a secured external hard drive!
Your computer or a mobile phone may break down anytime and as a result, you won't be able to access your coins. Coins that can't be accessed are considered [/size]lost forever[/color][/size].[/color]

My advice is to use the official Bitcoin Core client. You will have least problems with forks and you can support the Bitcoin network.

Hey,

The best and most secure way is to use encryption to hide information, and if can handle a piece of paper then that is the safest way because devices can are hackable if not now might be possible in future.

I also think same any piece of technology can be hacked in not today might be in the future, but a piece of paper is safer and impossible to hack from any remote location..

When it comes to the safety of Bitcoin, one needs to consider the following safety rules: -
1. If you are using online services like bitcoin exchange make sure that you use a strong password which is harder to guess by anyone. You can also make it more safe with 2-Factor-Authentication.

2. Directly control your bitcoins through private keys. Never share your private keys with anyone. Keep it safely. If unknowingly you have lost your private key always keep a paper wallet with you safely to access your crypto.
3. Backup your bitcoin wallet regularly.
4. Always check that you are logging in your wallet by opening the link directly in the browser, otherwise you can fall victim to phishing attack.

5. Can use Hardware wallets like the Trezor to keep your bitcoin safe and secure.

I think this is a great summary of many things you need to consider for security of your coins. I also think the private keys are a big aspect of security and really keeping them private is very important, if not anyone can have access to your coins... And I got the impression that a paper wallet really is the safest option for choosing a wallet. Also it might make sense to use a laptop that you only use for cryptos and to use Linux on that...
don't take yourself so seriously, no one else does

On the exchange, I use two-factor protection and sms authentication
