I want to know if is it possible to hack an Ethereum account?


1 Answer 1


yes it is possible to hack your Ethereum account if the hacker stole your private key, or via phishing if you use an online wallet.Otherwise, it is impossible.

  • I think it is also possible to get your account hacked if you created your private key offline using a private-key generator like "brainwallet" (bad idea), as those are more easily guessed/brute-forced (using dictionary attacks etc.). In such a case the hacker did not steal the private key, but generated an identical copy of it on its own.
