Can Wot protect against Identity Theft through Anti-Phishing?

While they advertise "advanced" protections I have personally seen phishing domains rated safe by their "Machine Learning" system.

As pointed out by “Site-Rater”, WOT alone can not catch phish. WOT’s “machine learning” is very much flawed.

One must vet sites manually to insure the best protection and avoid bad habits such as giving out important information for “free trials” or paying deposits to verify one’s identity to gain a payout (crypto-scam).
