    Looks safe to me. I would have been alerted if there was anything malicious there. My AdGuard blocks nearly everything that would harm my PC. In the event something got by my adblocker, I have Malwarebytes premium running also. I scanned after visiting there with 2 other programs I use as scanners only and nothing popped up. I downloaded a few pics to see if I got any alerts.

    I'm using two services for checking sites and files: (site is showing clean from both services)

    Urlvoid www.urlvoid.com/scan/wall.alphacoders.com/

    and Virustotal www.virustotal.com | detection

    Virustotal is aslo capable of scanning any individual file. You can upload it, or use separate utilities to check files

    Yeah, the Wallpapers are created by Users and converted into multiple Resolutions and they get checked by Developers and other for malicious code or anything else.. the Site owner itself is from Canada.. but i just wanted to be sure you know :/

    Hmm, Adguard? i have Always runned uBlock origin in my Browsers.. (now i'm using Edge its really fast and stable now)

    + (i use Adware, Nocoin, Spam, Adguard filters in my Adblocker, do you know any other recommendations to use as filter? ) + Thedownside of ublock in edge is that you can't disable pop-ups with it, the pop-ups get trough the adblocker, but i think that needs to be fixed by the Developer or Edge need something newer or something idk.. and the other problem is you can't add (Nano defender or Filter) to ublock origin to protect you from Anti-adblock messages :/

    i have heard Adguard is not that safe because its developed by Russians.. but i don't know.. i dont trust so much my Data with others, i have yesterdag quitted using Chrome on Desktop and Android, because they are playing nasty again.
