Adding badgers next to each organic result in the search feed for you to check the website safety without the hassle.
Your search feed might be a dangerous jungle with many suspicious or even malicious results disguised as totally legitimate content sites. Before you click on each organic result and be redirected to an unknown site, our extension provides you the opportunity to preview the safety status of the website based on WOT’s reputation score. Without the need to go visit another site to double-check the website URL, now a simple click on the safety badger next to the result in the feed will give you a better understanding of how safe/unsafe the destination likely is.
Disclaimer: We integrated the reputation score of WOT in order to provide the status of the website URL in the feed and we are not responsible for any miscategorization.
Please note that the extension only adds badgers next to organic results in your feed. We do not add the badger next to ads. You cannot check the status/safety level of the ads page.
