Yes, WOT has three different preset protection settings that you can choose from when you first download the add-on.

Normal - This is the recommended setting for just about everyone. You will see rating icons for all the search engines and other sites WOT supports. When you hover your mouse over a WOT rating symbol, a small pop-up will appear that shows you a little more detail about each rating component. If a site is rated poorly, you will get a warning.

Light - This setting is for experienced users that want minimal protection. The only rating symbols that show are those for sites with a poor reputation. If you navigate to a poorly rated site, a warning bar will show at the top of your browser instead of the larger warning screen. The small pop-up is disabled.

Off - This setting is for users that do not want to get any warning screens. If you navigate to a poorly rated site, no warning will be displayed, so the only way to recognize poor reputation site will be checking the color of a rating symbol.

Parental Control - This setting provides the ultimate protection against sites with poor and unknown reputations. If a site is rated poorly in the child safety component or if a site has no rating at all, then WOT will block it from loading. Be aware that good sites can potentially be blocked because they have not received a rating yet.
