Most of the Internet users are familiar with URL shortener. I hope you can remember my post Security risk of shortened URLs and even this post is about sharing a short URL with privacy.
In case if you are looking for privacy for your short URLs, I’m going to introduce a URL shortener which gives you an added layer of privacy to your links. Follow these steps to share a URL semi-secretly,
- Goto http://thinfi.com
- Enter the URL.
- Type a password for privacy | Tips: Making of Strong Password
- Hit, Shorten button.
That’s it. Your secured short URL is ready to share with others. Only the persons know the password can open your link. Anyhow, I don’t think I’m going to use this service because I never share any secret URLs on sociable sites. However, I hope thinfi can help some of you to short the URLs with a low level of privacy.
