Shares your browsing history with a marketing company. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

After viewing some private URLs (a url with a string of random characters, and these weren't published anywhere) I saw these URLs requested from address owned by Kontera (Amobee), a marketing company. Had some friends test it out and if you have the WoT plugin, it the same thing. So.... WoT is sending your browsing history to ad companies.

Great resource! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good protection! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is great addon! Very simple and easy to use, it blocks unsafe sites from my browser. Will keep using it for a long time.

Bias and corruption Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Moderators and premium users give their evaluation based on personal animosity to the owners of the sites and provoke the rest of the community to put a negative evaluation. Also lot of offers online about cheat ratings that actually work, despite the "verification algorithms". Do not follow the indications of this add-ons and do not install it at all!

Модераторы и премиум-пользователи выставляют свои оценки, исходя из личной неприязни к владельцам сайтов и провоцируют всё остальное сообщество выставлять негативные оценки. Также много предложений в сети о накрутке оценок, которые действительно работают, несмотря на "алгоритмы проверки". Не руководствуйтесь показаниями этого дополнения и не устанавливайте его вообще!

scam programm, doesnt work nice

One of my must have add-ons Rated 5 out of 5 stars

To those complaining some people put false ratings for a website, remember this is a GUIDE. If it's flagged as a bad site, it is probably is, if it's marked safe, it depends on how many positive ratings it has and in any case, in the end if you have doubts you should research it before visiting. WOT is an invaluable 1st step for deciding if you should visit a website or not. It's not meant to protect kids from bad sites; and IMHO parents should be supervising their kids surfing; there's software to help with that. The latter is NOT the purpose of WOT!

WOT - I do not trust. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

I don't recommend to install this add-on. This is WOT System , deceives users. The evaluation the website - often is not correctly.

Я не рекомендую установить это дополнение. Система обманывает своих пользователей. Рейтинги сайта, показывает не верно.

Ich weiß nicht empfehlen, diese zu installieren add-on. Dies ist WOT-System , täuscht Anwender. Die Auswertung der website - oft ist nicht korrekt.

Not the addon we deserve, but the one we need Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This addon works exactly has promised. Avoided quite a few scams since I use it.
Otherwise I have found the user-made databased to be biased sometimes.

Made switching tabs very slow Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I was wondering for very long time, why after longer session, tabs in the browser were switching very slow (about 1 sec. or more). I had this problem for very long time, about a year (I started to notice and get annoyed by it after I began to use another browser sometimes). Creating new profiles (but i was turning on sync just after that, so the addons were downloaded) didn't help. Finally i tested turning off all addons, one by one. Turned out that after disabling wot, problem with switching completely disappeared.

Contemptible behaviour. Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Awful, selfish, self serving jerks. They are all trolls that low rank good honest websites so that theirs have a higher ranking. Like Mac cafe antivirus, my mothers doll pattern website and other innocent business gets a not trusted ranking. Don't put this in it's a worse then a scam it's an infringement on the publics trust. Go into their forums, lurk don't post read for a few days and you'll see how they attack people that try to show their innocence. In response they further slander the persons reputation and will go and down-rank their website even more. Pure evil, I swear they all must have personality disorders.

This user has a previous review of this add-on.

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.

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: 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

Wow man, your search tool is so simple and Very useful for me.
