Computer security is a growing cause for concern, with viruses, scams, and spam senders constantly evolving and outdoing previous measures that were implemented to keep them at bay.

WOT, also known as Web of Trust, is an easily installed add-on that protects your computer from sites deemed "risky."

If you are unsure about a website, or you're traveling in previously unchartered territory, WOT checks the site against its database of 21 million sites. Once this is done, it gives you a coloured rating - green for go, red for danger - allowing you to make an informed decision.
