Just WOT Name In Thawte Discription.

Post by anandnav » Mon Feb 18, 2008 7:21 am

Hello Sami,
Well when I went to Thawte SSL website page www.thawte.com and then entered into email Personal Email Certification page http://www.thawte.com/secure-email/pers ... SecureMail
to get free email cert I was a bit shocked at first to see a Web Of Trust (WOT) in its description which amused me for a moment and thought of letting you know about it.

The Striking Discription From That Page Is As Below:
* The unique thawte Web of Trust (WOT) community where thawte empowers existing members to become thawte Notaries, allowing them to certify the identity of other thawte personal certificate users. Read more on the thawte Web of Trust"

Some people might get a little confused at first with it and also I was thinking if it is legal to use your company name like that?

Regards,
Anand N.

Hello All

Yes I can confirm this. I did a Google search for Web Of Trust. I found Thwart Web of Trust and the WOT web site I visited them both and found them both interesting. I would like a Thwart Safe Site Logo for all my web sites.

I found the information on your web site so useful I have put it on my Internet security 4 free web site first page.
