how do mods work online?

I mostly want to know if anyone has used them online and what it effects, I've wanted to try it out but I have second thoughts, I've been playing splatoon modded fine, but I don't know how different smash is from splatoon.
any tips to avoid bans or what keeps you out of harms way?
I know you can at least make a backup of your switch before it was banned to help.

    I'm also very curious when it comes to this. I have a resorted CSS mod, but I make sure I'm not connected to wifi whenever I use it. I've heard people say that using custom firmware while connected to the internet on your switch will automatically result in a ban.

    So far i've been using skin mods online within the past 4 months and so far haven't been banned just don't do anything stupid (for example playing Giga Bowser in Quickplay and public arenas)

    As far as we know, Ultimate does no integrity checking on files to see if it's modded or not. Only integrity checking is through save data. Just be sure to use client side mods only to avoid desyncs.
