WOT: Web of Trust

Recommended Posts

Is this application safe to use ?

I used to have Avast online security but after recent events decided to find an alternative.

I would be grateful if you tell me which application to determine the security of the site is better to use.

You can go with chrome extensions of MBAM browser guard, Emsisoft browser security etc. for added protection, or even free adguard  adblocker extension.

But if you use Chrome, it has it's own sandboxing feature to block malicious links and your AV too will take care of it..

How to Test a Suspicious Link Without Clicking It

"https://www.lifewire.com/how-to-test-a-suspicious-link-without-clicking-it-2487171"

SCAN THE LINK WITH A LINK SCANNER
Link scanners are websites and plug-ins that let you enter the URL of a suspicious link and check it for safety. Norton SafeWeb, URLVoid, and ScanURL are services that offer link safety checking. They index the remote destination and then report back on what was found so you never have to load the site on your own computer.

CONSIDER ADDING A SECOND-OPINION MALWARE SCANNER
A second-opinion malware scanner can offer a second line of defense should your primary antivirus fail to detect a threat (this happens more than you would think). Some excellent second-opinion scanners, such as Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro, can make a real difference.

I would suggest referencing this information from Wikipedia regarding WoT.

As a teenager, I already understand that we are under observation , the state and mega corporations are following our every move, thinking how to use us better and squeeze the maximum benefit out of us.

 I read about this application in wikipedia and found out that they was selling user information, but if this application reappeared in google and mozilla stores does it mean that this application has become safe, or does it mean that they are conspiring ?

Once you are online, you can be tracked in many ways, so one has to live with it.. you can't eat the cake and have it too..

So, if it's about protection from malicious links, websites, go with added protections suggested..

Of course Malwarebytes Browser Guard blocks many trackers as well, as does Ghostery, Privacy Badger, Disconnect, and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; all good add-ons for protecting privacy online.
