New energy for WOT

Full of New Energy

Dear WOT community,

First of all, we would like to apologize for being so quiet for a while. Thank you all for your support and commitment. We appreciate your loyalty and dedication, it helped us survive tough times. You are a true inspiration for us and we always admire your dedication towards making the internet a safer place.

Mywot review display updates

Changes in displaying your site reviews

To increase the transparency of users’ reviews, we decided to add a new feature – indicator of the rating range in the comment field. Once the user rates a site and leaves a comment a little bar will be displayed informing in what score range the site was rated. The exact reputation score will remain private for the user only.

2013 in review, from MyWOT

WOT 2013 review and behind the scenes

As 2013 reaches its end and we get ready to turn the page and welcome 2014, WOT makes a review of what happened in 2013 in numbers:

During 2013, 6.9 millions new websites were rated. Out of these, 3.89 were rated as good sites and 3.01 millions as untrustworthy.

MyWOT site now HTTPS

WOT website is now HTTPS only

WOT wants to ensure the safety of our users and we are now making HTTPS mandatory when accessing the website. Using HTTPS was previously an option for logged in users, but now all attempts to load pages over HTTP will lead to a redirect to a secure site instead.

Celebrating 100 million downloads of Web of Trust

WOT is celebrating 100.000.000 downloads!

We are gladly announcing that WOT reached the milestone of 100 million downloads. Last fall we were reaching 50 million downloads, so we managed to double them within a year. The credit for this achievement goes to all of you who support and trust us. Without you all we wouldn’t be getting such a great number as 1.6M ratings per month or over million new sites rated to our database .
