Also, be careful, sometimes some campaigns distribute coins (airdrop) and offer to download their own purse, which contains a virus that later steals your data or sells analytics to use your device to sell the data to advertisers.

This is a tough one to prevent for the average Joe. Almost all wallets trigger an anti virus alert (and they need to be manually whitelisted to enable launch), it‘s extremely difficult to see whether the wallet comes with a built in surprise.
