not really. they are safer than credit cards. i don't know of any bitcoin wallets that have been hacked but i'm sure there is some idiot who did not secure his private key and it was stolen. as with a car, don't leave your keys in your car and leave it running. simple security.
i'm sure you will respond with a link of some third party getting hacked but that would just prove you don't understand how bitcoins work. most detractors don't.
