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: 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.

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
This is the add-on to immediately install after installing Firefox.
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).
Сервис для зарабатывания денег Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Схема зароботка проста как мычание, платиновые пользователи загоняют сайт в красную зону, потом владельцам пишут письмо с предложением внести энную сумму денег, за "обеление" сайта. Сама идея сервиса хорошая, но только в идеальном мире.Поищите отзывы о данном сервисе узнаете много нового.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (20151126).

I recommend this add-on Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I install this add-on for every computer that I use. I also recommend it to others who aren't as computer savvy. Funny thing is that I feel more safe using this than a "professional" for-profit solution like McAfee or Norton. With this, you have normal people explaining things in normal words. If they don't feel safe, they explain why. The best thing is the fact it prevents accidentally going into a website that has a bad rating. THIS feature alone can help so many
Removal of one star is because of the scorecard layout is cluttered and sometimes overwhelming. The little mini scorecard that hovers over links on search engines is perfect though, I only dislike the full webpage scorecard.
Imminent visual overhaul of scorecard
Thanks for your review - your feedback means a lot to us. We wanted to draw your attention to the new scorecard layout that's being released VERY soon. You can check it out on our blog:

I like to keep my Internet surfing on the safe sideThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (20151126).
Very Good, Indeed Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I have used WOT for some time, and have full trust in it.
As to the person saying about visited URL's being sent, I'm sorry to say this, but everything, including the browser itself, anonymously sends that out. They use the information, mainly, to improve their product and service. Nothing online, is ever 100% private, anyway, so if you'd rather trade security for privacy (in your head) then by all means, do so, but there's no reason to say this addon is untrustworthy, due to your own ignorance about the internet.
WOT: Your last update may have caused a "could not be verified for use in Firefox" certificate issue. May want to check into that. :)
