Porto Alegre como qualquer cidade com mais de 1.000.000 de habitantes, tem áreas que não são seguras, especialmente à noite, porém não há roubos nas ruas de Porto Alegre, com exceção de algum celular, que é roubado em ruas pouco movimentadas, nunca houve um arrastão em Porto Alegre e na maioria dos bairros, você pode circular tranquilamente durante qualquer hora do dia ou da noite. As pessoas que flzeram comentários falando que é uma cidade muito insegura, certamente não conhecem Porto Alegre.

This city is a fu**ing war zone. Most of the people who can afford are moving to nearby cities, like florianopolis, curitiba, Londrina, joinville there are much more safe. Uber drivers I met have told me they are afraid to pick up the phone in the streets because some thug will snatch and run. I've been there and it's much worse than Rio de Janeiro, because the mainly problem in Porto Alegre, apart from drug dealing is theft and mostly robberies, mostly happening in broad they light, they don't even care anymore. The streets could be crowded, thugs will commit mass robberies ( the famous "arrastão") just type this word along with the city name and you will see how crazy and desgraceful it is to live in this dump. Do not recommend to walk at anywhere, neither during day or at night

I don't feel safe walking on the streets. Mugging is really really common here. When I go out, I put my good cellphone in my underwear and leave an old one in my pocket, just in case.

There's a total lack of insecurity. I guess it has become the most dangerous city of Brazil. I feel afraid to be killed even during daylight. If you don't give any value to your life, it's a place to be.
