What wallet to use?
Choosing a wallet to use can be quite difficult for the new user and I shall guide you through the different kinds of wallets and the pros and cons of them and the importance to a new bitcoin user. This is part 2 of my guides
Web wallets are one of the least secure wallets you can ever use some of them don't even provide you with your private key to personally access your bitcoins, I personally would not ever use a web wallet and you the newbies of bitcoins shouldn't either. Don't be lazy and just sign up and place your bitcoins there and leave for years. Some web wallets include
-Easy to use
-No control over funds
-Can't access some features which having the private key can do
These are HardWare wallets are some of the strongest wallets that you can have, you usually own one when you have a massive amount of bitcoins(btc) you don't want to store on your device. With those heavy duty wallets its near impenetrable and extremely resistant. Here are some examples of them
Now we are getting in to the wallets you should use personally if you just want to store a couple bitcoins.
These are the wallets that can be used everyday and are quite safe if you know around them.
-Bitcoin Core (If you're seriously considering this I recommended torrenting the entire blockchain because it can take quite awhile to set up)
-Can be encrypted and kept safe
-Easy to access and use on a daily basis
-It is software so beware of fake wallets
-Can be a fake wallet and you can lose all your bitcoins
-Can be hacked if not encrypted or stored safely
Want to use your bitcoins on the go these wallets are for you ready on mobile and very compatible it is very useful for any bitcoiner.
-Can be used in the go

-Not many options
Paper wallets are very intriguing to anyone new or old to bitcoins its kind of another physical way of saving your bitcoins most usually on a piece of paper as the name suggests. Paper wallets have to be made precisely as if your device gets compromised so can your bitcoins on that wallet, stay safe.
