Shortened link services such as bit.ly and t.co are everywhere! The Unshorten extension for Google Chrome takes the guesswork out of clicking on a shortened link by automatically expanding the link and clearly informing you of the destination.
Anything can be hiding in a shortened link. Unshorten gives you the piece of mind that when you click on a shortened link it will be checked by malware detection APIs for validity. If a shortened link is clicked that is known to be malicious Unshorten will clearly notify you.
Nobody likes to be tracked. When using the Unshorten browser extension over 15 common tracking cookies will be removed from the destination link.
