Mozilla (Fire Fox) and Google (Chrome) have ceased allowing the browser extension called “My Web of Trust” (WOT) to be added to new installs of Fire Fox or Chrome. This action is based on the discovery that the parent company of Web of Trust has been selling browsing data which specifically identifies individual users by name. This breach of trust is a very serious matter and we recommend that Web of Trust be disabled in each of the browsers in which it is currently installed. At this time Web of Trust’s parent company indicates they are working on a solution that will satisfy the concerns that prompted Mozilla and Google to remove WOT from their lists of approved browser extensions. More information will be shared as it becomes available. If you do not know how to disable a browser extension in any of the browsers you use, please do a Google search to find out how to do it.
