Is hacking immediate?

Hello everybody, one month in the past a made my first sizzling wallets utilizing Electrum for BTC and Metamask for ETH.

Since to at the present time I’ve by no means been hacked, and since I’m not planning to promote for some years, solely to obtain extra ETH / BTC to the addresses that corresponds to those wallets which I already trusted in my exchanges, then my query is:

If immediately I trash the apps of Electrum and Firefox (it’s a Mac) this implies I’m 100% protected, proper? Or is there nonetheless the chance some hacker already took my personal keys, however not my crypto, and can finally stole it?

The quantity of crypto I’ve in these pockets is like 5 {dollars} in the mean time, possibly they’re ready that I’ll deposit extra crypto.

Edit: Sure, I do know that I should purchase a chilly pockets, I’m already planning to get one in April as a present for my birthday from my spouse

  1. You can never 100% exclude the possibility, but wiping the keys from the system will almost always be safe. Make sure to check where the wallet files were located and if they were also deleted. Usually a hacker has no reason to wait if they got your keys, it will be instant.

    If you do a timemachine backup or similar, check if the wallets were backed up. There is still a lot of “error-potential”, that’s also one of the reasons the community wouldn’t call this wallet “cold”, just because it was “hot” at one time.

    And of course make a backup of your seed now, as it’s now the only way to access your wallet again.

  2. Hacking isn’t always necessarily instant. Removing apps may be completely useless if you’ve somehow signed a smart contract with your wallet.

    Often, people wait after breaching something to get more data, more info, elevated permissions, or, in the case of a crypto wallet, some meaningful amount before hitting go and draining everything.

  3. There were a lot of cases where hackers waited for the hacked account to have substantial funds before draining it.

    Check the approved sites and contracts in your wallet and make sure you know all of them. Remove anything you dont recognize.

  4. I think technically, if you can access it there’s always a possibility someone else can as well, just depends on how likely that is.

    There might not be some hacker that’s just manually scouring things to hack, might have some malware sleeping until it’s activated

  5. Also consider anywhere you have stored that recovery phrase.

    If it has ever passed through your email or elsewhere on your computer, and if that could be recovered.

    If you suspect that there is a chance of it being compromised, just pull off the bandaid and transfer it to a new wallet now.

    But odds are, you are probably fine. But this can never be guaranteed.

  6. You are *probably* safe. But not certainly safe.

    If your keys or seed phrase were ever stored in accessible computer memory, or used in a browser, they *might* be compromised. But they also might not.

    You say you have a small amount of crypto. If you have a lot, and someone knows your keys, hacking would be near-instant. If you have a small amount, someone with key-snatching technology might not want to expose themselves by grabbing yours, because even your small amount will likely trigger you to report them and go looking for them… and they know that they risk being followed and found.

    If you are compromised, you will not know until your stash vanishes.

    A good practice is to start with a fresh wallet that you know for sure cannot have been compromised, with a seed phrase and/or keys that have never been stored on a computer connected to the Internet. Transfer all you have to those accounts, and stay safe. And for the love of Pete, keep it off any custodial exchange. Not your keys, not your crypto. Trust nobody.
