Here are tested and trusted methods to keep your Steemit Security 100%.


Steemit provide you four different keys which are meant for 4 different purposes as follows:


this is the first key that is given to you at registration.They specically warn you about keeping the password safe. Many people do not pay attention to this warning and may end up in trouble.keep it safe offline as much as possible, write it in a piece of paper or a book or save it in a device which is not used online with internet connection. it is used for all purposes even changing for other keys.

B.Posting Key

it is used for posting , commenting, following and voting.You can save this key to your browser and you don't have to worry about ifsomeone hacked this key through the internet connection.he can't do anything like change your passwords or transfer funds from your account to their account. All they can do is post, comment, vote and follow.

C. Active key

the active key is used to make transfers and place orders in the internal market. On the other hand you should never save this key to your browser as if a hacker got access to this key he will able to make transfers from your account to his account So keep it safe offline in a piece of paper or a device.

Now I'm going to be show you how to access these keys.

So firstly, sign in to your Steem account with your master password and tap on your
icon and then select wallet and then permissions.


Click on "SHOW PRIVATE KEY" then copy and save it.


Saving is the best way to keep your liquid assets safe. You know why? It takes 3 to 5 days to withdraw a savings . So even if a hacker get access to your account , he cannot utilize it . If he attempts to withdraw it, you will be notified in your memo which will keep you informed.

Welcome to Steem Community @iftikharali! As a gentle reminder, please keep your master password safe. The best practise is to use your private posting key to login to Steemit when posting; and the private active key for wallet related transactions.
