This question already has an answer here:

I'm having a hard time finding objective reviews / comparisons of these two 'lite' clients. Can someone who tried them both give some comments?

Thanks

At the moment the Electrum client is more secure as the wallets are password protected.

I am the lead developer on MultiBit and am working on wallet encryption but it will take me a few weeks yet. There are a number of changes to make.

I think multibit shines in its ability to handle multiple wallets, which is very important to maintain anonymity and information leakage through "change" transactions.

However, Electrum is currently a much more feature rich client that allows you to create wallets and spend bitcoins from an air-gapped computer with no internet connectivity. This is the ultimate security for Bitcoins.
