WOT (Web of Trust)

WOT is a website reputation and review service that helps you to make informed decisions about whether to trust a website or not when you are searching, shopping or surfing online.<br /><br />WOT shows website reputations as traffic lights next to search results when you use Google, Yahoo!, Bing or any other search engine. Icons are also visible next to links in social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter and email services like Gmail and Yahoo! Mail, as well as other popular sites. By clicking the traffic light icon you can find out more information about a website's reputation and other users' opinions. A green traffic light means users have rated the site as trusted and reliable, red warns about potential threats and yellow indicates that you need to be cautious when using a site.<br /><br />WOT ratings and reviews are powered by a global community of millions of users. Third-party sources are also used to warn you about malicious software and other technical threats that you might encounter.
