Web of Trust (WOT) today announced that it has received over 60 million downloads of its browser add-on. Earlier this month WOT reached other important milestone of 40 million rated websites.The WOT add-on helps readers discover trustworthy websites by giving ratings and reviews based on the real life experiences of millions of users. WOT’s ratings are crowdsourced through its worldwide community and provide a traffic-light system to alert users to potential threats.
Markus Suomi, WOT’s CEO, said: “There is a large group of users to whom being able to contribute to web safety by rating websites is very rewarding. These people can identify multiple types of threats every month and by sharing this information through WOT they can help protect other users from falling into online traps”.
