As a reminder, you should NOT use #Segwit for non-Lightning wallets. It is harmful to #Bitcoin by enabling larger blocks and increasing the growing rate of centralisation. (This *includes* Bech32 addresses! Try to use 1xxx or 3xxx addresses you're sure are not Segwit)
One exception is for long-term savings. If you're not planning to use the wallet at all for several years, you should probably use Segwit since your next transaction will likely be to upgrade to Lightning.
Since several people have expressed concern: There is NOT any risk of theft from using Segwit. Anyone claiming they can be stolen easier (especially justifying it as "anyone can spend") is a trolling liar.

The danger is sync times, NOT theft.
