BeforeYouClick review of GitHub

GitHub to us seems a reliable website. The domain uses an SSL certificate to guarantee a encrypted connection, and as such offering at least some level of privacy. This site has been around for almost 6 years now. Being around for this long, the site can be expected to be mature and safer than average. This is not a very popular site worldwide and probably does not have a very large budget for security matters. GitHub is active on social media. We only know of a Twitter account (@github) for this site. Its account has been verified by Twitter. GitHub has contributed to Twitter substantially, over time.

How we got this information about GitHub

About crawling

A lot of the data we present to you here is gathered through a technology called Crawling. That is to say we utilize an automated method to load a web site and infer as much intel from it as is feasible.

We try to crawl GitHub as often as possible. Sites sometimes will get altered suddenly, so this information might be outdated. In the following we indicate when the last time was we crawled this site (14 days ago), and what results we consulted.

Some websites may present alternative content depending on the origin of their audience. We crawl with servers from the United States, so any localized information we received will be adapted to a US audience.
