Can NFTs be stolen?

Rounding it up

  • NFTs can be stolen if someone gains access to your digital wallet’s private keys.

  • It’s also possible for an NFT’s files to disappear from the internet if they’re not hosted in a secure format.

  • The first step in protecting your NFTs is to use secure passwords and multi-factor authentication on all your exchange and marketplace accounts.

  • You should also consider using a non-custodial hardware or software wallet to store the private keys to your digital assets.

  • For extra security, consider hosting your NFT files on a more secure platform than an HTTPS URL, so that you won’t lose your assets if a server or web host goes offline.
