Freemake - Credible website

July 15, 2010

Therefore, in addition to Microsoft Code Signing Certificate that ensures the safety of our freeware, we place the WOT trust seal on our website.

WOT or Web of Trust creates a secure Internet browsing environment. It shows a security icon next to each website URL that you visit. The service works in real time and warns you against dangerous links, malware, scams, etc.

The service was founded in 2006 by Timo Ala-Kleemola and Sami Tolvanen. WOT was officially launched in 2007.

In 2009 Michael Widenius, MySQL founder invested in WOT development and became a member of the board of directors.

The service was recommended by PC World,  PC Magazine, the New York Times, and other leading resources.

WOT rating is based on reviews of users. As you surf the Web, you can install the WOT plugin and vote for good and bad sites. The plugin is available for all most popular web-browsers. Now every visitor of Freemake.com can assess its credibility and write a review. You can browse previous reviews of WOT users and add your own opinion. Each voice counts. Don't hesitate to recommend Freemake free software to the World Wide Web audience!

As you might understand it's not that easy to get a WOT seal if you produce harmful content. Thus the presence of such a seal on Freemake website guarantees that our products and webspace is totally secure and won't damage your system or hard ware.

Before browsing the Network, install a good and trustworthy antivirus tool. It will block the malicious content and will save your data and PC. Unfortunately, even the best protection tool can't guarantee the 100% safety since new viruses and malware appear literally every day. AV utility developers try to do their best and update their tools but it any case it takes some time. You should also be attentive to what you do online.

We encourage users to pay maximum attention to the sites they download content from whether it's music, visuals, or, and especially, tools.

Before saving a particular app, read the reviews of other users. There should not be too many negative comments. In case you see any info about the scam, hijacking or anything of a kind, better stay on the safe side and forget about this tool.

The 2nd advice to follow is to download apps only from the official developers' websites. Firstly, you will get the newest version. And secondly, it is much more secure than getting the tool from other places. Please keep in mind that developers are not responsible for the utilities that are modified, cracked and uploaded to 3d party websites.

We will be glad if you let us know your ideas and suggestions we can follow to make the website better. Don't hesitate to contact us with any comment you have.
