Student or Learner
Is "take care" frequently used when saying good bye?
NOT A TEACHER
(1) Yes, as riquecohen said, it is a common way to say goodbye.
(2) Another popular expression at the present time in the United States
is "Have a nice day."

"Have a nice day." They feel that those expressions have lost all
real meaning and that people just repeat them without any real
(4) I have found that some learners make a BIG mistake. They want
to say "Take care," but they say instead:
Be careful! (That's a warning that something bad may happen to you!!!)
