Weekly Privacy Tip: “Web of Trust” Browser Plug-In

We’ve written about Web of Trust in our “Plugins for Privacy” series on Wired GeekDad, but you can’t say enough about a good plug-in. Web of Trust is a browser plug-in that allows you to view, at a glance, peer reviews of websites you’re interested in straight from the page you’re viewing or even within search results. Each site is rated on privacy, child safety, vendor reliability, and trustworthiness, so you can take the opinions of others into account before venturing into a site with a dubious privacy reputation. If you have a privacy-related browser plug-in you’d like us to review on Wired, let us know on Twitter at @CenDemTech.
