Nintendo ROMs for Android? Safe? NO Virus?

So I've downloaded dolphin emulator and I want to download Roms however when I tried in the past, I almost got a virus. Is there any site that is safe and virus free? Also, can someone run me down on downloading Roms? Do you need a PC? Can you do it straight from the phone? Thank you.

You can use devices to dump ROMs/ISOs of the games you own yourself.

Here is information from Dolphin themselves how you can do that: https://dolphin-emu.org/docs/guides/ripping-games/

 

All other information would fall in the 'piracy' category, which is not allowed to be discussed here.

Sorry if my post seemed rude, that is never my intention.

Quit pirating things then. The emulator itself is easy to get from the developer, don't go to a third party site.

 

If you're not ripping your own games, just stop now.
