As a start, you can do three things to securely store the mnemonic phrase.

  1. Get a piece of paper and write down the phrase and store it in a safe and secure place
  2. Copy & Paste the whole mnemonic phrase and keep it in an encrypted file or document. Don't forget the password to that file and keep a backup of that file.
  3. Download the the backup under the mnemonic phrase via the link and store this file somewhere save. Storing it in the cloud is often not the securest way. You can also encrypt that file. And do not forget the password to that file and keep a backup of that file.

If you want to be as safe as possible, physically write this down and never even type it into your computer or any device connected to the internet.
