It's safe for low amounts only, and if you have 2 Factor Authentication setup.

For large amounts, the other options like Armory, Bitcoin Core, and Electrum are better options.

Safest options are offline or cold wallets like the hardware ones, Trezor and Ledger or a paper wallet.

Because their security.

Better to use cold wallet if you want to store btc with big amount.

for big amounts use a hardware-wallet:

for small amounts blockchain (and all other services) are okay.

Their security measures are low nowadays. Try to create a paper wallet, to create easily using https://github.com/cantonbecker/bitcoinpaperwallet . If you can afford Hardware Wallets, then buy Ledger or Trezor(link to sources in above post).

It was removed due to concerns over security, can't remember the details.

There's an article here. http://www.coindesk.com/hacker-returns-225-btc-taken-blockchain-wallets/

After knowing about the recent security problem on blockchain.info, I would suggest you to use a desktop wallet instead even as a hot wallet as you never know when the site will get another bug.

Though some users have lost some bitcoin on their blockchain.info wallet due to a bug, the wallet service is still there and you shouldn't be unable to use it. Anyway, you can always try another wallet client by importing your private keys in it.
