its been removed by the bitcoin.org site that says a lot. but then again if you go to the .org site you`ll notice newer wallets appearing so im not sure what to think since these new wallets are coming out of nowhere.. outside from the desktop ones.
How odd, as far as I know blockchain.info has one of the highest number of users as compared to the listed web wallets there which also says a lot

I didn't have any problems with blockchain.info wallet whatsoever and I'm using it for the last 4 years. The only issue I've had is the confirmation email not getting to me and that's been resolved in an our or so. So if you ask me, it's good and it's only safe as you are making it safe.  

Everything is safe if you keep it safe. No doubt web wallets are dangerous but blockchain.info does provide option to create seed for wallet hence reduce risk of losing Bitcoins. But still it is better to go for wallets like Electrum if you can easily access it on both desktop and mobile.
Agreed if you choose not to be careless with sharing your email address and the alike that should keep you out of harm's way and i think blockchain.info is as good as desktop wallets because i honestly think its advantages out weigh using other wallets and its just convient to use.

I am a regular user of Blockchain.info wallet. I am using it about 8 month past. Not yet face any big problem with my blockchain wallet. I think its safe to me. because i use 2FA on my wallet. private key is the most important document for blockchain wallet.If you can save it in a safe place than your wallet is safe. But desktop wallet is the best wallet .

As far i know blockchain.info is safe.But i don't like online wallet. I will suggest you to use electrum,bitcoincore or any desktop wallet.But blockchain.info is most better than any other wallet. but use two step verification and don't forget to save your phrase.

Same here. I've also more than 1 years experience of using Blockchain.info wallet. As Blockchain take care much about security, treat as most popular bitcoin site and online wallet. But, only having your own wallet, such as a hardware wallet will be suggested.

Blockchain is probably the safest in all web-wallets.

But there is always a risk involved in web-wallets, I'd still recommend paper wallets.

Not all people can download full blockchain or just too lazy to install and wait to synchronized properly with Blockchain network so using Bitcoin web wallet is a good way to store Bitcoin and it's easy to use but you have to face the cons like sometime it will down or you can't access it sometimes.

About security measures and others use blockchain.info wallet can be recommended. But, you should not wonder if your accounts come to getting hacked. Try to use those listed wallet, which have been reviewed by bitcoin.org. It might be OK.

Correct. Blockchain is a safe and mostly uses wallet. large number of people using this wallet as a first class wallet.But online wallet is not safe wallet,  If you want to safest wallet then you have to use Electrum or mycelium or desktop wallet.Bitcoin.org said to use Electrum or mycelium wallet may be.

Online wallet are risky to use, but blockchain is a good wallet. If someone use 2FA then its more safe to use.so blockchain wallet is safe.

Yes right, all online wallet is at risk, even offline wallet is also at risk, but I think it depends on our way in addressing the problem, it is safer if we do not rely on one type of wallet, dividing our bitcoin into some wallet is the best way.

If asked safe, of course safe, because I've been using more than a year and become the only my bitcoin wallet. The most important thing is we must have to enable all 2FA security features, so it is difficult for thieves to hack our account.

Yes it is safe and ive been using it since i do engage and know about bitcoin.It is safe as long you didnt give any informations about your wallet and setting email verification and 2fa would really a good security into your wallet and now blockchain would really give you the access on your keys which is really nice feature as of now unlike in the past that they dont give they keys but now you can able to do such thing.

Yes right, all online wallet is at risk, even offline wallet is also at risk, but I think it depends on our way in addressing the problem, it is safer if we do not rely on one type of wallet, dividing our bitcoin into some wallet is the best way.
Dividing your coins over various wallets won't do much if you expose yourself to all kinds of risks that may come from online wallet services or you not properly securing your backups.

Nothing beats proper offline storage. Offline storage means that you store your private keys on a piece of paper, or a hardware wallet, that at all times has no connection to the internet.

People often think that when they use a desktop client that they are safe from whatever threats, but that obviously isn't the case ~ it gives people a false sense of security. Offline is the way to go for long term storage.

Yes it is safe and ive been using it since i do engage and know about bitcoin.It is safe as long you didnt give any informations about your wallet and setting email verification and 2fa would really a good security into your wallet and now blockchain would really give you the access on your keys which is really nice feature as of now unlike in the past that they dont give they keys but now you can able to do such thing.

It's not as safe as a desktop wallet, and it's much less safe than cold storage. I've read about potential JS attacks that make blockchain.info vulnerable. The fact is, whether potentially devastating attacks are currently known yet or not, you don't control the software which controls your keys on blockchain.info. That should worry you. I'm certainly not sophisticated enough to understand the potential attacks, but I feel much more secure with my encrypted desktop wallet.

You can add 2FA to an electrum wallet too, if you want. BCI is better than a straight up 3rd party web wallet, but it's definitely not great for holding much value.

Online wallet are risky to use, but blockchain is a good wallet. If someone use 2FA then its more safe to use.so blockchain wallet is safe.
In any case web wallet is risky we are not so sure who are behind it . I also use that blockchain wallet and many more so in with that i can reduce the risk of losing all that i have , Using 2fa is a good authenticator only for those who wants to steal your money but if that web wallet runs we cant do anything .

Most of us say that web wallets aren't safe and it's vulnerable for attacks and it has lesser security features. I would yes, that's true but what if you will do small amount of transactions?

They are the convenient way of storing bitcoins online and it's up to you on how you will handle your bitcoins.

You just be aware of clicking certain links that are untrusted and don't fall for phishing links.

If you're using them to collect giveaways and things of that nature, sure. But if we're talking about really insignificant sums of coins (at least in terms of today's value), then I would probably use Coinbase. Coinbase is great for collecting large amounts of small inputs, since you don't need to pay any transaction fees when you want to finally move your coins out. Yes, there is 3rd party risk. But they are a tightly regulated company and we aren't talking about risking very much.

I think they are asking for the miners fee before last month when i was use their wallet..
Are you sure that coinbase right now are not asking for the miners fee and you are free to transact without paying miners fee?
Because past month ago before segwit activation coinbase is asking for miners fee i just want to clarify since i already transfer my funds to my electrum wallet just to be safe before segwit..

You're right. I misspoke. They charge a miner's fee, but I believe it's a relatively flat fee based on current network fees. In other words, if you send them dozens and dozens of inputs, they'll still charge a standard miner's fee based on standard wallet procedure. They won't take into account how expensive sending a transaction composed of many dozens of inputs really is. If you sent this type of transaction from your own wallet, you'd end up paying a good deal of it in transaction fees. I believe this can be avoided when using Coinbase.
