Surf Smokey’s with confidence: all external links in posts are checked and rated by WOT – Web of Trust

Being a serious security board, we take our members web safety very seriously. This is why we have integrated the WOT (Web of Trust) feature on our board Smokey’s Security Forums.
All members will now be able to view the safety of any link provided on our site and will be able to see the trustworthiness, vendor reliability, privacy, and child safety of any site before clicking the link. More about WOT below.

WOT- Web of Trust

WOT warns you about risky websites. It will keep you safe from online scams, identity theft, spyware, spam, viruses and unreliable shopping sites.

  2. You are welcome Deborah. 🙂 After all, our aims are the same: a secure web and safe surf experience to all. WOT is one of the tools to reach these aims. BTW, IMO WOT is a great and useful tool. That is the reason I have integrated WOT on my board Smokey’s Security Forums.
