Dear WOT,

That's good to hear! Is this a consensus from the rest of the My WOT community that File Hippo downloads are safe once again? File Hippo claims they are on the homepage of its website. Is this a true claim? WOT community members may want to virtulaize their machines and test some downloads, just to be sure that the site is safe



@Satchman, that member has all of two posts, one giving a "kudos" on the scorecard, the other here. And I have flagged their post for spam.

I guess money talks after all. I don't like them for bundling additional software into 'free downloads' but as long as they have an opt-out button, it doesn't really matter. Ad-blocking software have hit these websites hard in recent years.

Yes, indeed, for some time I liked FileHippo, but some things are really changed for them, and I no longer visit that site as before.
