Safe file download

Buyer requests often include a file download, this makes sense as their project may include specific specifications. However, due to the prevalence of scammers on this platform, I’m nervous to download files from unknown people. How can I confirm a file is for sure non-malicious before I download it?

Then you should install a anti virus like Kaspersky, Avast etc :no_mouth:

I never download things attached to the buyer requests for this very reason. 9/10 times there enough info on their request to know if I will be of use or not. I make my offer and I won’t open any files until I have an order in place.
