    As the people above said, it's definitely not safe to use a use a nulled theme as you can have bad surprises later.

    Ultra has 7.8s load time but the page is full with images, I will use few of them on my landing. Others scores are A in GTMetrix

    One shared by purchaser should be fine. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    There are many paid themes available in member download section from some reputed members with virustotal reports attached. Try them instead.

    i thought nulled themes with malicious code sneak past virustotals? maybe i'm wrong. wp plugin "wordfence" usually catches malicious code inside nulled themes.

    as for myself, i've used probably a hundred nulled themes over 7 years and never had an issue as far as i could tell. shoutout to themelock.

    Safe if you can check and clean the theme yourself.

    Clean in the sense that you can find the malicious code, remove it and debug if the theme had any problem

    Never safe and a very bad idea. The nulled theme is free for a reason, usually to have a back door for a hacker to come in or run a remote script.
