How can one effectively avoid malicious threat especially when you are on the internet frequently? I doubt if this is even possible because there are threat everywhere on the internet.

There is no effective way of completely protecting yourself from such all you can do is limit your exposure and make sure that you has additional protections.

you have a crypto wallet, safeguard your private keys. Consider using hardware wallets, which are considered more secure than software wallets.

Use strong, unique passwords for your accounts and wallets. Consider using a password manager for added security.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA): Enable 2FA wherever possible to add an extra layer of security to your accounts.
