To be honest I didn't like how keyrings work in Ubuntu and removed them completely.

Is my action safe and won't it harm any part of the system?

Keyrings are one of those things which reduce the PITA. Wouldn't know why someone wouldn't like them. – Khaja Minhajuddin Jul 29 '10 at 11:12

Keyrings are only made to store passwords so that you don't have to always type them. It will do no harm to delete them except for the hassle of typing them all again.
