Unshort.link

Prevent short link services from tracking you by un shortening the urls for your. Try it on unshort.link

**Logo Design help wanted**

It would be awesome to have a custom logo for unshort.link as it is required for the Firefox & Chrome webstores. The current one is just copied from flaticon.

Features

  • Access short links for you to prevent the short link providers to track you
  • Check links against a blacklist to prevent access to a harmful website hidden behind a short link
  • Remove known tracking parameters from the urls behind the short links (e.g. the facebook tracking parameter utm_source)
  • Remove as many url parameters as possible by keeping the same website result. This helps to remove tracking parameters that are so far unknown
