No, it is a free service. You may be asked to include a "miners fee" to help support the Bitcoin network, which is mandatory for the use of Bitcoins.
Yes it is, we are protected from hacks as all of your private keys are encrypted with your password before leaving your computer. We do not hold a copy of your password, and thus are unable to view or spend your Bitcoins. You retain full control of your private keys, so your wallets can never be seized or blocked and can be imported into any desktop Bitcoin client.

We suggest that you do not delete your addresses directly, and instead archive it. If you really want to delete the key from your wallet, you can delete it in the Archived Addresses tab. (Warning! Bitcoins sent to this address in the future will be lost too!)
Bitcoin Addresses come in two parts, a public part and a private part. The public part allows you to view the transactions and balance of a bitcoin address only. The private part is the important bit to prove that you are the owner of a Bitcoin address and is needed to be able to send funds from that address. If there is an address in your My Wallet account which is missing its private key, it will be marked "Watch Only" which means unless you have the private key saved up elsewhere you do not own the funds at that address and can only "Watch" them.
A paper wallet is analogous with a pre-signed check book that contains everything you need to send and receive money from your Bitcoin wallet. Paper wallets are one of, if not the most, secure way to store your Bitcoins. There is no way anyone can make unauthorized transactions on your behalf without stealing the paper document. We provide an easy way for you to make a secure paper wallet using My Wallet. Please see this tutorial.
Two factor authentication is as an approach to security authentication, which requires that the user of a system provide more than one form of verification in order to prove their identity and allow access to the system. Our users are protected from hacking attempts with the use of two factor authentication via Yubikeys, Google Authenticator, SMS message and Email.
Please log in to your My Wallet account, and choose the Account Settings option. Navigate to the Security tab, and choose an authentication method.

We apologize, but closing your account is not possible at the moment.
Your Bitcoins in your wallet are unfortunately lost. We apologize, but due to our stringent security practices we do not have a copy of your password. Please periodically create paper backups of your wallet to prevent this unfortunate incident from happening.
It is impossible to generate the private key unless it is saved somewhere else e.g. paper wallet. Without the private key you do not own the funds stored at this address.
