Web Safety for Firefox

I came across a new plug-in for Firefox that is worth sharing! The “Web of Trust” application puts a small colored circle by web links in your email or web pages. They are colored green (for good), yellow (for caution) or red (for stop). You can also customize it for safety of your childen’s web browsing as well. Hopefully by paying attention to the color of the circles, you can prevent a lot of spyware from being downloaded as well!

Check out Web of Trust!

    Thank you for recommending WOT to your readers. Internet security, especially for children, is a major issue these days. We have made a short video about a growing threat – fake anti-malware software. Check it out here, http://www.mywot.com/online-threats/fake-antimalware

    Safe surfing,
