Decryptlinks: Preview Shortened URLs Before Clicking On Them

Shortened links have become a standard in our social media use. We like them because they are easy to create, share, and promote. However, it can also be a tool for hackers and fraudsters who use these short URLs to hide malware or dodgy webpages. Fortunately, we have Decryptlinks. This simple tool lets you securely scan shortened URLs and preview its contents before you click on them.

To use Decryptlinks, you only need to enter the short URL in the search box. It then scrapes the destination URL’s title, and page description. It even takes a screenshot of the page, which is great if you do not want to be caught visiting NSFW pages during work. It also includes a Chrome and Firefox addon so that you can do quick checks.

Decryptlinks is a convenient service for those who want to add an extra security step before opening links. With this tool, you do not have to guess the page you are going to, because it allows you to just know.

Chrome/Firefox addon available.
