Summary

Despite the convenience and the time saved by the autocomplete suggestions from your Chrome browser’s address bar, not all the website URLs popping up in the autocomplete will necessarily lead you to a safe destination with appropriate content. This is a Chrome extension that integrates WOT’s website rating system to display the SitesRank safety scores of each domain that appears in your autocomplete suggestions. Before clicking on any domains, view the safety scores first to avoid the low-rating and suspicious sites to stay away from bad content. We also provide an alternative option for you to check URLs inside the extension’s user interface. Please enter a valid URL (example: amazon.com).

What is WOT? Web of Trust is a website reputation and review service that helps people make informed decisions about whether to trust a website or not. In this extension, we integrate with the WOT API. We are not responsible for their rating scores and cannot guarantee that the scores are 100% accurate.

The SitesRank Scores can be turned off at any time from the extension’s action window. Don’t forget to turn it on afterward!
