Good idea; poor execution. Rated 2 out of 5 stars
The idea of a reputation database for websites is good, but in practice it is difficult to verify the given ratings, which the WOT crew realized and have thus abstained to do any verification of the ratings people submit, no matter how unwarrantedly positive, or blatantly hostile. The browser plugin is outdated and causes significant memory bloat.
And that's where WOT stands today: A two year outdated plugin that slows the browser launch and operation to a crawl, hogs anywhere from 50 to 400 Megs of RAM as well as slow your browser launch from 10 to 30 seconds depending on how intensive your browser usage is; the site ratings can vary to be of good veracity to being ridiculously off - there are the obvious mass-created accounts solely made for the purpose of leaving one or a few positive ratings for sites that need to be 'boosted' for marketing or scam-enabling purposes; political websites are frequent targets of carpet-bombing by political party soldiers and assorted ideological extremists that have taken a dislike to them, and thus leave utterly false ratings, eg. that a site would contain malware, phishing, illegality, when it is either of a nature that is just ideologically controversial or simply discussing subjects of an unpopular nature.
And as always, the WOT crew cannot generally be reached to clean up spam, smears of either individuals, organisations or companies. It is as such, increasingly unreliable. I have myself uninstalled the WOT plugins from my browsers.

Quite disappointed in the WOT concept Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I had joined the WOT community thinking that warnings about sites and there conduct be it a scam or just a site out to take peoples money would be viewed by all who are members when trying to log on to that site. Well I was unpleasantly surprised to see this is not the case and only puts a warning on the users screen who places the warning. This is the most ridiculous concept imaginable. The people who place the warnings already know what sites they have warnings for. I accessed a site I put a warning on with my laptop and no warning is present. Only on my desktop indicating I choose to have this warning on my computer. I am taking this application off of my computers immediately.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20131118.1-signed).

SPAM, SCAM!!! Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This plugin completely offers NO protection! Even you may be the victim of spyware or adware by using WOT addons. Should use internet security or antivirus for safer browsing.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20131118.1-signed).
BEWARE of WOT : Why NOT to use this addon?? How is WOT a SCAM?? Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Here's my personal experience with MyWOT. It's a long review, but do read it before installing the add-on.
The idea of Web of Trust was good initially, aiming at preventing you from visiting a website deemed unsafe by WOT community members. But it has been misused by the moderators and owners of the WOT community.
How is WOT a SCAM?
The algorithm used by WOT is TOTALLY FLAWED. Here are a few reasons..
Reason #1: BIASED RATINGS
Suppose you and your 1000 other friends like a new website which gives much useful information about Children and how to take care of children. A genuine site providing useful information.
Now You and your 1000 other friends vote positive for the site in the WOT plugin.
Now a moderator of the WOT who might be a children hater, or having some mental disorder sitting at some dark corner of the world, who has no love for children, votes the site negative. And BAM, now the genuine and useful site you and your 1000 other friends loved, shows as an unsafe site in WOT. Also the WOT plugin prevents you from opening the site.
Because a vote of a moderator or so called elite member of WOT has thousand times more weightage than yours.
WOT do prevents you from known spam sites but it cant be totally trust in case of business sites and personal blogs as the ratings are totally biased.. There are much more better unbiased security addons avaliable which is monitored by experts on their field
Would you support such kind of rating system with no equality among users??
Reason #2: YOUR PRIVACY IS AT RISK
Web of trust gives no guarantee about the browsing history and your other information which the plugin stores. WOT is a start-up company which plans for profit in future. It might seem free today, but with all your private data,
WHERE'S THE GUARANTEE THAT myWOT WONT SELL YOUR PRIVATE DATA IN FUTURE TO MAKE A PROFIT???
Reason #3: WOT is abusing the freedom of Internet
The internet is free, and the best platform to express the opinion of people. And thanks to projects like linux and firefox, we can be assured that it will always be..
But Sites like WOT abuse this freedom of internet. A bunch of freaks, rating websites, damaging hard earned reputation of brands, by the click of a button, thinking of it as a game. The more you rate the more score you get.. Stupid..
WOT would be good only if the rating system changes, and the moderators and owners realize that it takes effort to build a brand and gain the love of its customers... The moderators need to stop thinking themselves as some superheroes born to protect the world from spam.
This was my experience with facts about my WOT and how I feel it is not at all useful, unless they change their algorithm.. You can read more by doing a simple google search for “Is WOT a spam?” and you will get a million other reasons why not to use this add-on..
Rest your call.. God Bless!!
Read more if you are a site owner:
If you are a site owner:
NEVER EVER submit your site for evaluation on their forums. The site evaluation is just meant for known spam sites to try to recover their ratings. Its not for new blogs or brands.
The moderators having no idea of running any business will simply insult you again and again, and finally after all the insult you will always end up having a bad rating for your site for a totally unjustified reason, which is not given by people of your country, or people who love your brand.
It is totally biased on the moderators view of the world.. Your site might be country specific or you might be sharing your opinion an an issue on your site, which if contradicts with the opinion of the moderators, or the moderator is just a anti-social person, will result in getting a bad rating for you.
There do a couple of good members who will first point the defects on your site, and would give you time to correct those before rating, but overall you will definitely have a bad experience with people who have no understanding of your business and who are not ready to listen..
P.S: I had a really bad experience with my WOT both as a customer and as a site owner..
Do some more research and If you too feel that WOT is a scam aiming at dominating the freedom of the Internet, then do aware others about it...

Deceives & Manipulated Rating Rated 1 out of 5 stars
This is a bad tool/plugin and mywot.com needs to be shut down. Web of Trust - WOT is a scam on massive scale. U should really do a search in google or any other search engine before u use this crap and u will see how bad this plugin is and dangerous to be used even the less to be trusted because and how their rating system truly works.
Do not ever post your site in WOt forum for Site Evaluations, you will regret it.
FireFox should Delete this Add on from here its Dangerous, misleading, fake for ppl to use it. Their rating is massive Flaw & Deceiving, Manipulated etc. Does not protect anything at all. Has massive False Positives about Good and safe sites.
just read this as example:
And does anything look out of whack to you?
Over 24 million negative and only about a 1.6 million positive!! Absolutely nonsense,
Check here: from their own site.
You got warned about this WOT crap, Stay way do not use it.

Can be biased Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Generally good -- but can be influenced by political agendas to mark "undesired opinions" as Untrustworthy.
The climate skeptic website CO2Science is marked with a red circle based on ONE opinionated adverse remark vs. many many positive reviews.
Someone at WOT has their thumb on the scale -- and not in a good way.
Rated 2 out of 5 stars
Though my initial experiences with WOT were good, as time has gone on, I am finding more and more sites flagged as untrustworthy for reasons that appear to be politically motivated or were falsely red-listed en-masse by automated users based on other sites of a shared hosting server, with no equivalent review or correction mechanism when the issue (which never had anything directly to do with the correctly red-listed site) was resolved. At this point, I am having to ignore the warning and go to the site because there is legitimate and trustworthy material there that I need to access more often than the warnings turn out to be legitimate.
Those saying I and others are misunderstanding what WOT is supposed to do are missing that WOT is not advertising itself as a thought police filter, so it is a problem when that turns out to be a major function of the ratings system.
Even the forum behavior considered acceptable when false ratings are questioned is starting to make me wonder if it is suitable to keep it installed as an extension on my kids' computers.
I am very close to uninstalling this as an add-on myself.

Ни черта вы не защититесь с этим расширением.
Оно закрывает доступ к сайтам которые рекомендуется посещать для своего же развития, а не препятствовать людям под предлогом - опасно для жизни.
Rated 1 out of 5 stars
It is flawed because it will condemn all websites on a host that has had a few untrustworthy bad sites that have been residing on the same server. If there are 100 good sites on a server with one bad site W.O.T. will rate all of them as bad. That's definitely not good security, its lazy, irresponsible, and just not right to do that to sites that are trustworthy. I don't recommend Web of Trust. There are actual working security systems made by people that put the time in that make the Internet a better place. :)
Here are a few:

This add-on gets abused to mark websites as untrustworthy only because of political opinion. Uninstalled because you cannot trust the "web of trust".This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20131118.1-signed).

Works for many sites, but I've found perfectly valid web sites that WOT marks as bad, due to personal bias, not the expected virus-containing, rip-off, poor business practices, etc. sites. You cannot change that rating.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20131118.1-signed).
