WOT incorporates automated scorecard references from various partners known as Trusted Sources. The Scorecard reference is added when the partner's database include an entry and when the partner's database removes an entry, WOT's scorecard removes the reference. Inclusion / removal is not immediate, it takes about 24 hours for entries to appear or disappear after WOT has received notification from the source provider.

The current list of trusted sources includes:
