I've used this website a lot and it seems like a trustworthy site.
However, I scored this site 4 stars because the information they provide isn't 5 stars.
The info is frequently neither in-depth nor entirely accurate. They provide information that you can find anywhere.
The site plays videos but has the audio automatically muted. This is the way it must be done. This is good as it protects your ears and your sound system. Sites that don't play nice like cnet.com need to be downvoted until they change their tactics.
I admit it, I love self improvement and so I get some absolutely gem ideas in here, things I never though before and that I get excited to apply. It's a website I always feel I become a better person when I visit it.
Lifehacker often has interesting articles for improving various aspects of life. As of the beginning of 2016, the site seems to be in decline--there are a number of sponsored advert-articles, and the quality of ideas and writing seems to have declined. Most of the high-quality content on this site is from several years ago--and some is becoming dated. None the less, it offers some great ideas.
Lifehacker holds many articles on ways you can make your life much easier or find shortcuts and tips to developing a new skill (these significantly helpful tips and tricks are known as life hacks, which is how the site got its name).
This site is safe. No malware or harmful links were found during my several visits.
I use Lifehacker a lot, but recently was redirected through a mistyped link to a site involved in the distribution of PUPs (potentially unwanted programs) trying to get me to "download a Google Chrome update". No thank you. Be careful and check the links before you click on them.
