Create A Safe Short Url with McAf.ee

. Thursday, September 23, 2010


Long URLs sometimes unpleasant. Especially for the online marketers and twitter users. For twitter users url shorten service is very useful to save space.Ffor internet marketers, this service will be able to hide their referral links from visitors. On the internet, there are already many services to shorten the URL, eg TinyURL.com.

Lack of application like this is, user who click the link does not know what it's until he/she actually clicks on them. You know, unlike regular url showing the domain sites to be accessed, a shorten url only displaying obscure code that does not indicate the direction of the site will be accessible. Thus, users could click on a link containing a virus or other unwanted content.

Computer and internet security firm, McAfee offers a shorten-urlservice called McAf.ee. The service has promoted to condense the URL immediately without scans to ensure that the link is safe. However when users click on the McAf.ee link, McAfee security system will test the access of short URL destination and determine that the link can be accessed safely. In determining that a link is safe or not, McAfee will use some of the same database used for the SiteAdvisor service and other security products.
