    But it is upto users themselves; if you talk about crypto earnings, then you will find "suggestions" from other people to remove your anti virus or keep the site allowed; this is how they fool people and make mining possible.

    Using better browser which blocks coinhive and yet the antivirus, antimalware protection, this will keep your PC safe from cryptojacking; just like this.

    There should be no worries about hacking just by giving out your public address.
    What you should never give is your private key, only with it the coins can be spent.

    to be honest I believe avast free antivirus is actually the only good free solution out there. I'm also using it and I'm pretty satisfied and I don't feel the need for more. I haven't had any problems with it

    I think so too because I have been using it for years now and I have not had problems with you,it really good and effective and the good thing is the fact that it is totally free.

    To stop cryptojacking, Chrome has also launched a tiny browser extension by the name of "No coin" that aims to block coin miners such as Coinhive; we can use it too.

    unfortunately, while checking reviews for all those extensions, I noticed none of them blocks every mining script.. I mean all of them let a mining script do its job from time to time.. But I guess it's still better than letting all the existing scripts do their job :Laugh:

    This is a reason why it is advised that never compromise with internet security for PC; scammers will lure you in claiming that anti-virus alert are fake; while the truth is that their links are mining which antivirus pervent.
