Is it safe to give NI No in the application forms?

Yes it is safe to provide your National Insurance number.  If someone inappropriate comes across your form and tries to steal your identity then they will have a big job ahead of them, as they'll still have to produce a fake photo ID etc.  By law all employers should be checking new starter's NI number and photographic ID to ensure they match and therefore have a right to work in the UK.

Yes, agree with this.  It is perfectly safe, they have to check you are eligible to work in the UK

A national insurance number is not a form of identification that could used for identity fraud and so giving that number should be safe.
