Every day we use a different number of websites in our daily lives. When we visit a website, we usually leave behind the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the website and this is how we reach that particular website. But are these URLs safe and secure?
If you are wondering whether it is safe or not then you can check it yourself. First, visit the website and then type the URL of the website in the address bar. You will get a list of options. Now, you will need to copy the website address and paste it to the Google search box.
Once you type the website address in the search box, you will get a list of options. At the top of the page, you will see a link that says “www.”. Click on this link and you will get the website you typed.
If you are thinking that this is the only way to visit the website then you are wrong. There is another method that is very useful and safe. It is the link shortener.
What is Link Shortener?
When you visit a website, you may leave your browser and visit other websites. But when you come back to the first website, the website address is long. This means that you need to type that website address again and again. To avoid typing that website address again and again, the link shortener will come in handy.
You will be able to save the URL of the website and when you want to visit that particular website, you will just have to type the shortened URL.
How is Link Shortener Safe?
Link shorteners are safe as long as you don’t get into any fraudulent activity. Most of the link shorteners provide the user with a free account to access the shortened links. You will be able to see the total number of pages that have been accessed by the user.
