The Toast Wallet is a very highly recommended tried, tested and importantly trusted XRP Wallet within the XRP community. It is free to download and use! They do however appreciate Donations to fund the Toast Wallet development.
If you install the Toast Wallet to your PC or Mobile your XRP is considered to be ONLINE and susceptible to a system crash or PC/Mobile hack (the fault of the PC or Mobile not Toast Wallet), although I have never heard of one as yet.
Alternatively and as a cheaper option to Hardware Offline Wallets such as Ledger Nano, you can create a USB Encrypted Drive Toast Wallet, once the USB is removed from your device and stored safely your XRP is now OFFLINE the safest way to hold your XRP. Insert your USB Drive and login and your XRP is back online! A Benefit to this cheaper method is you can purchase multiple USB drives for the price of a single Ledger Nano and then distribute them around to avoid a faulty USB drive or earthquake :-), if you want to do this with a hardware version the costs will mount quickly. Please see the USB Encrypted Drive Toast Wallet tutorial as recommended alternative to this PC/Mobile method explained below.

Before you start sending your beloved XRP to this Desktop Toast Wallet I recommend logging out and and in again to your Toast Wallet account just in case there has been a mishap in any of the steps, once you are back into your ‘not activated’ account and you have safely and securely stored passwords, pins, passphrases and your backup is stored safely and securely it’s time to activate the wallet account, I would suggest sending 21 XRP and check it has made it to your wallet.
