Yes, compared to many other European cities, Rome is a bit less safe and there's more scams there. But just take the usual precautions and you should be fine. If people approach you on the streets speaking English, pretend to be from China and don't understand them.
I went to Rome alone and I think it is a lot safer than other parts of Italy,like Naples. If a gypsy approach you,just ignore them or be firm with them when they ask you to sign a petition or sell jewellery to you. As for pickpockets,so long you carry your valuables in a sling bag and keep an eye on your bag at all times, it should be fine and you won't be pickpocketed.
