Web Of Trolls Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Yet another trick of leading western companies, a Trojan horse.
MyWOT has been secretly funded by leading western companies to eliminate existing and all future competition thus protecting their absolute market domination. When Internet was still free, large companies were losing profits to smaller and medium sized businesses. They came up with a plan. MyWOT was born. It sneaked its way onto about a million of computers (true stats) like a parasite, like a virus, fooling people with their free service, free plugin and whatnot. Now people can only visit their websites, purchase from their websites, because their websites are green by default. Those companies know what you're doing as well, what you like to visit, buy, watch and they will adapt to it, they will offer you stuff based on that data.
It's a ring of businessmen that finance these sort of services. They want to stay on top. Usually they start a free service, something everyone will accept, because it's free, then they manipulate public opinions, shift interests which drives money their way. It's what Facebook is anyway, it's a system of different services that are all connected together with sole goal of driving money into pockets of true owners who hide behind people they picked to have relations with the public. They usually pick one guy to be the face, frontman of such service. Then they create a legend about them, example: "this one studied this and that or didn't, had an idea, it was hard to realize such idea, he was very determent and persistent, so he made it, etc.". They pick such people that look plain and simple so that common people can think that's achievable for them as well and dream about those goals. Stories are constructed in a careful manner so they get accepted by the majority of people. But it's always a story of struggle, hope, determination and success after many years of trying. It's, of course, all fake, but people don't know that. It's all a smokescreen of deception, advertisement, brainwashing, etc. Services like Twitter, WOT, Facebook, Pinterest, etc. are all a part of this system, the system supports them, system created them. Of course, none of the common people will ever walk the same path as those chosen ones, but will dream and waste time and money trying to achieve similar goals, because they were made to appear achievable by the parasites on top of the pyramid, the masters of illusion.
The reason why they declared Internet open and free is for it to enter into every home and business so that it would have a bigger impact when they take it over. Internet was actually never truly free and open and all free services are actually funded by people who control finances as those free services are advertised with huge budgets. It's an illusion of free and freedom, a deception.
WOT ratings are based on opinions of WOT users / community and companies that fund WOT scam. Companies that fund WOT and WOT staff hide behind their forum community which are not experts in security, hacking, scams and other similar topics, it's just their personal opinion or, in case of companies that fund WOT, agenda to prevent competition from taking their market share. So, WOT community is not the owner of WOT, companies are owners. Community is just a facade, a smokescreen, a deception, a trick companies hide behind. WOT community are common people, most of which are undereducated or uneducated, illiterate and/or minors. You can't really be wise and put your browsing security into hands of such community as you'd be putting yourself at risk. Even though WOT is advertised as security service on Facebook and over Internet, they're not going to protect you against phishing, credit card frauds, malwares, viruses, adwares nor spywares, it's simply completely useless as real threat websites are either not rated at all or are marked as safe. You just need to be smart enough to realize that WOT advertisements are a bunch of lies and deceptions like any other advertisement with sole agenda of driving traffic to wanted companies websites and away from their competition.
So, in short, you get what you paid for ... nothing, plus you give them a chance to brainwash you :)
The key to safe browsing! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I like how useful this addon is. It should not be considered as a replacement for anti-virus - it can block unsafe sites and links. Keep in mind that the ratings are generated by other users - overall it's very trustworthy!
Won't browse without WOT Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Been using WOT on Chrome for years, truly one of the great addons that's here to stay. Thanks for your hard work and keep it up!
Completely broken Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It seems that if a website is not compatible with mobile devices, it automatically gets a low rating. Even dangerous to children. This has already raised concerns with potential voters and sponsors which completely turned them away. Why can a site promoting vitamins or smoothies be targeted by WOT ratings at the suggestion of WOT? If I could rate 0 stars, I would. In fact, I actually make the request that firefox, opera and chrome and all other browsers no longer offer it.
Piracy and porn are safe? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I had this on my son's laptop to protect his browser and the plugin was flagging completely safe sites and marking piracy sites full of porn as being safe. It is not to be trusted.
I'm curious why Mozilla keeps deleting my review here? Also how many negative reviews have you deleted for this plugin? Why are reviews being censored? I encourage anyone with a bad experience to keep posting your reviews, even if Mozilla keeps removing them. I also encourage you to go through the reviews here and flag all of the 5 star reviews that are clearly fake or that are non-review content.
Go to other sites and post your reviews as well. RipoffReport already has multiple complaints about this company. Post reviews there.
People need to know that this plugin does not protect them and that it only provides biased opinions of other random people.
There's a Parental Control setting
While it would be incredible if WOT could automatically block what users subjectively feel is dangerous, it simply doesn't work like that. Before making the claim that WOT "is not to be trusted" we invite you to familiarize yourself with how WOT works.
-If you land on a site that has a poor reputation based on user ratings, WOT shows you a warning.
-WOT guides you, but the final decision is yours: you can skip the warning and enter the site anyway or return to the previous page.
-By re-rating the site and giving it a good rating, WOT will not warn you again.
You can read more about how WOT works here: https://www.mywot.com/en/support/tour
WOT's rating system is divided into two parameters: Trustworthiness and Child Safety, which are not one and the same. If you want to block adult sites from your son's laptop you can simply open the extension's advanced settings and check the box marked "Parental Control".
However, if your main interest is parental control, there are other extensions that specialize in that. WOT is not advertised as a parental control tool, it is an added layer of security against scams, fraud and other online threats that only humans can detect.
As for your "original" review being removed my Mozilla, they likely have a system that flags reviews that were posted across multiple platforms, just as this exact review was posted on Opera, Mozilla, and Chromebeat. If you have an issue with WOT we invite you to speak with us directly. Just say the word :)
Another once-good addon which is circling the drain. Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Lately, I don't trust Web of Trust. I've visited several websites which had excellent ratings lately, and my security protection disagrees with WOT's ratings. Today, I had several unauthorized access attempts and intrusion attempts from one website (which had an "excellent" WOT rating). Doing a little digging, I found that the server was located in Phoenix, AZ, but the people who gave the ratings for the site were located in China, Russia and Korea. I have to conclude that the owners of WOT don't check the ratings and comments for authenticity. Sorry WOT, but I no longer trust you, and you are being removed from my system.
Wouldn't the responsible thing to do be to warn others about this site?
WOT depends on users like yourself to rate sites and warn others when you come across these types of situations. The Good Samaritan thing to do would be to write about this site in WOT's reputation discussion forum: https://www.mywot.com/en/forum/3 and allow other WOT users to investigate this. Thank you.
huge concerns about my privacy Rated 2 out of 5 stars
While Installing the addon tricks you into signing in for social media features. Also all websites you are searching for are sent to their server for evaluation and they are stored for a month. Hope the users are Aware they are recording ALL of their browsing history. Definately giving up privacy for security here. Do you really want them to see your complete surving behaviour? There are better ways to do this anonymously without collecting so much data.
Edit for the Developer: Why do you need to store my history for a month? Why don't you use hashes instead of the URL? Why do I need facebook, why is it so easy to miss that you DO NOT have to get an account. Why are your cookies enabled by default in the settings?
This is how security addons work
This is exactly how browser security add-ons work: the add-on detects which sites the user is visiting and checks the URL against our servers, warning the user when a site isn't safe. Otherwise add-ons would merely be decorations on your browser.
Bel progetto ma l'affidabilità è da prendere con le pinze Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Di base sarebbe un progetto molto utile. All'atto pratico i meccanismi attraverso quale vengono valutati i siti non sono molto credibili secondo me. Perchè alcuni siti hanno quasi tutti i commenti e le voti dei visitatori negativi.. e ciò nonostante escono ancora con il pallino verde.
Le valutazioni che vengono date andrebbero verificate maggiormente.. chiunque può aprire un sito di malware e poi creare mille account con i quali auto-votarsi il proprio sito affermando che sia sicuro. E' ovvio che lo facciano. Proprio per questo chi è un utente vero deve votare ROSSO pieno senza nessuna pietà.
Invito gli utenti quando votano a votare in modo più netto e pesante. Se un sito installa anche solo un programma indesiderato, deve essere marchiato con rosso pieno. Altrimenti si continuano ad avere siti che sono malevoli ma rimangono verdi.
I casi in cui si può votare a metà, in realtà, sono piuttosto rari se ci si pensa. Un sito o è affidabile.. o non lo è. O verde.. o rosso. Non concepisco la gente che vota giallo un sito che installa malware. Perchè altrimenti così facendo l'addon non serve a nulla. Perchè uno vuole sapere a colpo d'occhio se vale la pena aprire un determinato sito oppure no. E' netta la cosa. Voi aprireste qualche volta un sito contenente malwares? Io neanche una volta.
Quindi rosso pieno!
Bisogna essere meno indulgenti nella valutazione.
Great security tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars
An excellent addon that allows its users to rate websites on their "trustworthiness" and "child safety", thus providing them some insight about these two things. The addon itself doesn't have much flaws but the same cannot be told about its community which is obviously composed by flawed human beings. Ratings are usually somewhat accurate though, so this addon is a relevant security tool.
I recommend, but do not trust ratings blindly and think twice before submitting yours.
Awesome Tool Rated 5 out of 5 stars

WOT lo considero fiable... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Me ha sido de gran ayuda para identificar sitios en los que puedo navegar seguro y con los sitios en los que debo tomar previsiones o definitivamente mejor no visitar, WOT me gusta, lo considero confiable...
Great Collaboration Add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The Web of Trust is one of the most downloaded add-ons on the marketplace, and for a good reason too. It compliments Firefox and makes those pesky, suspicious websites apparent to new users. The fact that the WOT detects all these sites through a collaborative effect is nothing short of amazing. My favorite part of the add-on is how simple it is to use. For example, green for good, red for bad, and yellow as a warning to be cautious. The simplicity of the design makes the add-on universal and easy to use for any age group, which is huge.
The only improvement I would like to see the author improve on is showing more details in the information description box when you hover over a link. I feel that when checking multiple sources, it may be tedious to open multiple links in order to find out how safe or credible a link is on the web. Other than my suggestion, the add-on is a simply must add!
Très bon module Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Wot est un très bon module. Il protège des sites frauduleux. Je recommande.
I would prefer not to surf web without WOT Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
The most important add-on I have.
Love this for Chrome, now for FF Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Been using WOT for years on Chrome. They've made some great upgrades lately, especially now that they released WOT 3.0 for FF. Great tool that I will continue to use! Highly recommended
Perfect addon to all browsers! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Web of Trust is an excellent addon for your web browser, which helps protect you from dangerous websites. You can help make the service better by creating an account at mywot.com and participating in the ratings process.
The new version takes a bit to get used to though.
More friendly Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use the new version 3.0 since several weeks on Chrome. The addon becomes more friendly. Staff is really involved in the new WOT which promises the best for the future. Keep on the good work.
Can recommend Rated 5 out of 5 stars
At the start I didn't see how this could improve the surfing experience, but now when been using this for a while I don't have anything bad to say.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20151126).
