There are many different types of Bitcoin wallets.
Today, we’ll show you some different types and help you find one that fits your needs.
If you send and receive frequent Bitcoin payments on your computer then desktop wallets are a good choice.
Most desktop wallets have a simple interface and are easy to use.
Since desktop wallets run from an internet connected computer, they should only be used for small amounts of bitcoins.

iOS wallets for iPhone or iPad are a great choice if you are making frequent payments on the go.

Web wallets run in your browser. You login into a web wallet just like you login to any other account online.
While web wallets are ideal for convenience, they lack the security provided by native apps for Android, iOS or desktop wallets.
Web wallets are more prone to phishing attacks. If you do decide to use one then make sure you login from the correct URL!
