You may have noticed some of the sorely needed upgrades happening at WOT, from our new homepage, WOT 3.0, and the new scorecard. We’ve also begun prioritizing better communication with you, the community, to quickly react to bug reports and absorb feature requests. We’re very excited with the momentum so far, and we’re not slowing down.
2016 is here, and we’re following many exciting developments and trends in online security: specifically, web filtering, mobile device security, and the industry’s ability to adapt to new threats. WOT is unique in that we are the leaders in crowdsourced security, making the WOT extension the number one tool for warning users about threats that technology cannot see.
With the goal of improving both the WOT and MyWOT experience, we plan to continue improving our website and extension, and will search for ways to improve channels of communication between the WOT community and site owners.
It’s worth mentioning that because it’s the holiday season, many of you probably bought or received new devices: In 2016 you can expect to see new security threats that will put them at risk. We encourage you to protect your devices, both new and old, with WOT. To take safety a step further and protect the wider community against threats, resolve to continue rating sites for trustworthiness and safety, growing the “crowd” in “crowdsourced security” and making the web a safer place for all.
WOT wishes you a happy new year, and we’re looking forward to an exciting 2016!
