Is it safe to remove a microSD card while your phone is still on?

Is it safe to remove a microSD card while your phone is still on?
I generally power off, but am I being overly cautious?

Usually, on phones that take a memory card, in settings you would find "storage" or something like that. And in "external" you should see "unmount"...
That is the safe thing to do. But I have many times just pulled a card without any ill effects... You do not need to switch off the phone either way.
