Malacca (Malay: Melaka) is a very safe place with a low crime rate. However, like anywhere else in the world when you travel, you just have to learn to be more careful.
Here are some of my pointers:

1. Avoid areas/alleys that are less frequent by people (get an official guide if possible).
2. Always check and reconfirm with locals/people from the hotel of the location that was recommended to you.
3. Do not keep all your money with you if possible.
4. If you can, avoid taking taxi from the streets. Go to an establish place like the hotel and ask them to call a taxi for you or use Grab or Uber.
5. Malaysians are generally friendly regardless of race. However, be careful. If you are not sure of their intention, just politely decline their help.
6. Don't simply accept drinks from strangers.
7. There are good cops and the opposite. If you stay out of the trouble, generally you will not have any problem.
8. Keep a photocopy of your passport in case if you lose it and make sure you have a contact number of your local embassies / hotel/ friends who can help in case of emergencies.
9. Be mindful when you are walking on side of the roads / path (keep your sling bags closely to your body).
10. If possible, if you want to use credit card, pay at the counter instead of passing your credit card to the server / waiter, etc.

Here you are.
Good luck and have a good trip in Malacca ;-)
