I suggest you guys to be very responsible with your btc wallet. I have a lot of friends who had their money stolen. Terrible situation for them.

How secure is https://blockchain.info/wallet for storing wallet info?
Assume the computer used to access wallet is never infected, and that BTC will never exceed 100.

This client, Armory -  http://bitcoinarmory.com/ , in conjunction with your bitcoin wallet says that it can give 100% security.  The trouble is you need to have an offline wallet held in a laptop computer dedicated to your bitcoins that never touches the internet. So I would invest in a paper wallet through Blockchain first and store the private keys in a safe, then put money in a offline wallet signing system like Armory once I have a fairly valuable amount of BTC. 

In other words, if you have over 50 BTC for example, use an Armory wallet signing software with a laptop that can be dedicated to just storing you bitcoins.  For amounts less than 50BTC, a paper wallet is a good and safe backup.

There is no such thing as 100% secure on the internet nothing is sacred. Many things can destroy a wallet e.g. system errors, hard drive failure lemonade spillage etc...

There is no such thing as 100% secure on the internet nothing is sacred. Many things can destroy a wallet e.g. system errors, hard drive failure lemonade spillage etc...

One way to look at the security is ; Whom have I given entrusted my private keys to? If the answer is no one but myself, then the weakest link is in yourself and no one else.

So paper wallets, Armory bitcoin signing software, (which can have paper keys as backups too) and even Bitbills http://www.bitbills.com/ are a safe way for storing the keys to your bitcoin assets.

Bitbills is based on trusting the company that has made the Bitbill and has destroyed their knowledge of the keys that are included in the cards they sell you.

Using these cold storage methods keep your coins off the internet until you want to use them.
