Digital “wallets” are used to store Bitcoin until you are ready to spend them or exchange them for another currency. Wallets are secure to varying degrees. The level of security depends on the type of wallet you use (desktop, mobile, online, paper, hardware) and the service provider. It is advisable to store your bitcoin in an offline “cold storage” wallet.
