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

I'm guessing you use MyEtherWallet? You can run it offline to avoid being compromised in the future. They have guides for keeping an offline copy and creating and signing offline transactions (which later need to be broadcasted online):

It's inconvenient, but definitely a lot safer.

What criteria should I look for to find that site reputable, there are too many sources. It is difficult for new people.

I quite agree with the rest except for the antivirus, haven't believed all those mobile antivirus to be real, Reason being that my friend was compromised even with a very strong mobile antivirus other parameters were good too

I believe that the most important rule sounds like "do not click on something you don't know." Another thing when the target is specifically you then there is practically no chances.

If we’re talking just about crypto, phishing sites for exchanges were and still are one of my biggest fears. I have “my” sites triple checked and bookmarked.
Also, when I’m on someone else’s computer I just go on CMC, klick on exchanges or the name of the coin in which I am interested and use these links.
So far so good.

I always watch for the ssl certificate and I think this is a good way to find out if its a phishing website or not... and obviously I use only websites I know like myetherwallet and so on... When I want to use a new website I google the website first and when I dont see threads on forums like "www.xyz.wzx is scam" then I am a little bit more confident that its not a scam but still I would only use it when Im in need... thanks for the list dude I think it will be a big help for the noobs here tho

Thank you sir for the good advice,

maybe i just want to add:

- you can bookmark several sites that you consider important to avoid phishing.

- always try to use a your own internet connection or a trusted connection rather than public connection like wifi.

Many beginners, with participation in different hands, filling out the form do not spread the wallet address, and the private key. I think basically the loss of funds in the wallets occur due to the fault of the owner of the wallet, the reasons may be different.

In fact, this can be attributed to any website that requires personal privacy or forced downloading of software. We should all be kept away from it!
