Safely Click On Shortened Links

March 25, 2013 – 9:50 am

decryptlinks.comMicro-blogging sites like Twitter limit the length of messages so it is a common practice to shorten web links using services like TinyURL. However, hackers can also hide malicious websites or programs behind these generic links. Unfortunately you won’t know until you click. Before you click on a shortened link, run it through DecryptLinks first. Just copy and paste the tiny address into the Decrypt field.

The site will reveal the long version of that address so you know if the location is legitimate before you click. It is a free service so check it out.
