Check a URL
(Powered by Norton WebSafe):

Copy Suspected URL, press the button below, paste the URL into the Search Bar and hit Enter.

If you are still suspicious after checking, please contact us for further help.

(Note: Links without the URL shown, right-click the Highlighted Text, and you should get a option to “Copy Address” or something along those lines. Paste that in the Search. Any issues, contact us)

Check a Short URL
(Powered by CheckShortURL.com):

Shortened URL’s are very useful for people like Websites and Businesses to be able to give the user a long link in a shorter way.

Sometimes a websites URL can be really big, and typing it in can be annoying, especially if you have trouble copying and pasting.

It also looks much more appealing not seeing this big line of info.

Unfortunately, Shortening can hide something within the URL, like directing you to a Malicious part of a website or hide a malicious site.

Fear no longer, get the Shortened link expanded, get details of the Link, and then use a URL Checker like Norton WebSafe.

Copy Suspected shortened  URL – eg –
“http://bit.ly/2Yn5Vlo”, press the button below, paste the URL into the Search Bar and hit Enter.

If you are still suspicious after checking, please contact us for further help.
