Could someone kindly explain how I could create a encrypted file/document which I could put ones seed phrases onto without causing risk that my seed phrases are not exposed online. Ideally would like to transfer that file onto a usb. I’d just prefer to have a electronic version. Could someone break it down in simple terms
Thanks!Saturday, July 23rd, 2022 at 23:23 #343998ok46reddit

[KeePassXC](https://keepassxc.org/) is an open source password manager which works offline so you never have to connect to internet
Just have in mind that USB can go corrupt so perhaps wise to have several copies/backupsSaturday, July 23rd, 2022 at 23:27 #343994Mr_P_Nissaurus
Write them onto good paper, by hand (no printer) and with pencil (ink can fade).
Make two copies. Double, then triple check them for accuracy.
Hide them in separate locations, in case of fire or flood. Seal them in plastic to protect against moisture, paper-eating insects, etc.
Think long and hard about really good hiding places.
A home safe is not a good place (too obvious). Somebody could put a gun to your head and force you to open it – make sure the seed phrase(s) to your life savings aren’t in there.
So called “safe deposit” boxes aren’t all that secure, either.
In addition to the above, memorize your seed phrase(s). Rehearse them quietly to yourself at least once per day, for example, in the bathroom with the fan and shower running and no microphone devices in the room (cell phone, camera, laptop, etc.)Saturday, July 23rd, 2022 at 23:29 #344000Astewen
Use NotePad++ and use the nppCrypt plugin to encrypt the document. Caution: if you forget the password you will never get your data back!Saturday, July 23rd, 2022 at 23:32 #343996-Bongo-Drums-
You don’t. You write on a piece of paper in graphite or blue or black ink.Sunday, July 24th, 2022 at 00:09 #344001Miffers
You could just put a password to open on an excel file. Make the password 32 digits or longer with symbols included. It would be pretty hard to crack this. I had a spreadsheet with the combinations calculated and it seemed solid. 2.14^43 days to crack if using one thousand computers working in parallel with 4^11 calculated total keys per second, per one computer.Sunday, July 24th, 2022 at 00:19 #343997m0loch

First you get 24 washers, you then stamp your seed into those washers…now you get a USB, throw it away and realize you dodged a bullet. Yer doneSunday, July 24th, 2022 at 01:53 #343999DaneHenry
Whatever you do.
Make sure a trusted loved one can access your coin if you are no longer able to.
