Web of Trust – A Safer Way to Browse

Posted by in Tech Tips

Web of Trust, a program that adds on to just about any web browser, lets you know just how safe the website you’re visiting is.  Using what’s called a “Trust Seal”, Web of Trust tells you how safe a site is, based on a 5 point rating in each of 4 categories: Trustworthiness, Vendor Reliability, Privacy, and Child Safety.

Let’s say you’re looking for a new coffee cup online.  With thousands of vendors available, before Web of Trust, you had no way of telling who is or isn’t safe to buy with.  Repeat the same search with Web of Trust, and you can automatically get an idea of which site is right for you.

One of the best things about Web of Trust is that it’s compatible with almost any web browser, with full support for Internet Explorer 8, Mozilla Firefox 3, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera.  Even better? It’s free!
