Prevention is better than cure, here are some tips on how to avoid phishing sites:

1.VERIFY SITE'S SECURITY - One of the best ways to avoid phishing site is to verify the site's security, you make sure that the site URL begins with "https" and a closed lock icon near the address bar, when you are using chrome it will be highlighted with a color green and a word "Secure" will be displayed.

2.KEEP YOUR BROWSER UPDATED - Browser's security will also be updated if you update the browser, technically speaking it will modulate the phishers and hackers to break into your account if you update the browser from time to time.

3.THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK - This rule is a general rule, just same as "Think before you speak" the only difference is that if you said it you cannot edit or delete what you said but in clicking to post something you can edit or delete it. This rule also applies to cyberbullying, but in this situation, you must have the initiative to think before you click, do not click on random emails and messages, some of the phishing emails always start with "Dear customer", to be sure you must go directly to the source rather than clicking phishing emails.

4.USE ANTIVIRUS SOFTWARE - Antivirus software scans every file which comes through the Internet to your computer. It helps to prevent damage to your system. For me, the majority of online users use antivirus software. If you have no antivirus software then you should install you won't regret it.

Keep these things in mind, Hope it helps!

Anti-virus software has almost no effect on hackers and fraudulent tricks through aridrop or email. Therefore, it is best to check before participating in a certain program.

Yeah as what the name itself, it is for antivirus, it would be much better if it has anti phishing and anti hacker features.

You can also look into anti-phishing software through companies like ESET or a service like mimecast--these are merely tools and shouldn't be the end all be all, however. Truly the best method of protection is by practicing one's due diligence through preventative measures like the one's you have posted.

ANTIVIRUS sees only the detected viruses and suspicious files.

3. THINK BEFORE YOU CLICK - -snip-
Why do you click on the link in the first place?
Some browsers like Google Chrome when I put the mouse beside the link, I see the extension below[small block], where I can review whether it is a real link or not.
Also, some extension like MetaMask will benefit you a lot.

Code:
[url=phishing link] real website name[/url]
Using such code leads to deceiving many

I'll add one tip on how to avoid phishing sites. Before you do it make sure you finish the first to third tips before the tip I want to add.
BOOKMARK THE SITE or CREATE A WEBSITE LINK SHORTCUT - You can access the site directly to avoid accessing phishing sites. Bookmarking the direct site lessen getting phished and you can access the direct source by opening your bookmarks to access secured sites while the create site shortcut, you can open the shortcut file right away and it will redirect you to the site (Creating a shortcut of the website you want is good on devices like computer or laptop).
BLOCK THE PHISHING SITE - Blocking the phishing sites you have known will be a great move you take. When you access the site it won't load and the site is blocked. In chrome there is a feature that you can block sites so you can't access the blocked sites unless you unblock it. Blocking more phishing sites as possible to prevent opening the phishing sites. Hope this will help you to avoid getting phished by hackers. I suggest that one of the best ways to prevent from getting phished are bookmarking the site and blocking the phishing site or suspicious websites.

There are some sites that verify the SSL because there are some sites that have some secured HTML but they are a scam site you can check the site certificate here https://www.sslshopper.com/ssl-checker.html and here https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/ these are some good free sites and very easy to use, or you can use some applications or extensions in google chrome that instantly or automatically block if it detected some phishing site like
Netcraft

Thank you, for these 4 points and warnings, so i will not lose my money. I would like to describe my phishing experience at MEW. I recently joined the airdrop and after a while the mail came to my mailbox. There was no spam folder. They wanted KYC from me where i was redirected to their website. It was necessary to enter user name, email and eth address, and eventually forward to MEW, luckily i am using google chrome and he stopped me from jeting phishing. When i put this link - https://myetherwallet.com.ip10.icu/signmsg.html into a different browser /chromium browser in my laptop/, i redirected it to their phishing site. There they could get my private key. For this reason, i recommend, as you write in your points, think twice about what to do and secure the whole comp, so that you do not regret your steps later. Here is the screen - https://ibb.co/fTx2kp. Thanks again, good work.

Agreed here.
If you don't expect any particular letter, it's better not to click on it if it looks suspicious. The same applies to various links on the Internet.
These days you need to be extremely careful while being on the Internet. Fact.

I don't understand why my wallet ERC-20 stolen by a hacker  Huh

Because your wallet is compromised better to make a new wallet on metamask or myetherwallet and make sure that you save your own private key to safe place and use Keystore / JSON File when logging in to myetherwallet because this keystore/JSON File has encrypted password than using your own private key and paste to myetherwallet for me, it's not safe because some people are victim with keylogger.
