Balena-Etcher is safe to use. I’ve wrote multiple installations to USB , straight from the compressed archive , wrote and verified , and all without issues. Its extremely straightforward and NOOB friendly, as some might get lost or confused ( one would hope not!) with the more advanced GUI of Rufus.

Only speaking from my experience with the — Linux x64 AppImage repository.

As long as you have your machine correctly configured to run the images!
