How safe are mods?

How safe is modding the Switch and using mods online (skin and sound mods)? I keep seeing that it's extremely risky to do rn since there's not really anything that'll trigger getting banned or not. I'm really wanting to use mods but the fear of getting banned is overwhelming me.

    If you install mods, make sure you do so while not connected to the internet, and remove all of them before connecting back to the internet. I don't know the intricacies, but Nintendo does not like mods and they will ban you if they see you've modded your system.

    Emulators, on the other hand, are perfectly safe to mod.

    You get banned for using switch mods because they have homebrew channel with roms. I recommend as I'm personally buying another switch just for mods later in the year.
