Get the Long Real True Original Expanded and Unshorten URL link - topic here only!



Security measure: Get the expanded URL link - decode shortened URL, which may be unsafe, may hide malicious page!

Here you have longurl.org message: 'Browse with Confidence and Increased Security! Avoid phishing, malware, and viruses by examining short URLs before visiting them. Find out where links really take you.'

Online services to get the Long, Real, True, Untiny, Original, X-Rayed, Expanded, Revealed and Unshorten URL link I find:


* Long URL: http://longurl.org/ - The Universal Way To Expand Shortened URLs.

* The Real URL: http://therealurl.appspot.com/ - URL Unshortening Web Service .. Get the original un-shortened URL.

* Get the Real URL: http://real-url.org/index.php - Get The Real URL.

* True URL: http://www.trueurl.net/service/ - Uncover, Find the True URL behind the short URL.

* Untiny: http://untiny.com/ - Get the Original URL of tiny one.

* Know URL: http://knowurl.com/ - Expand Original URL From Tiny Shortened Link.

* URL X-Ray: http://urlxray.com/ - Find out where shortened URLs lead to without clicking .. Enter any shortened URL.

* Sucuri Get Real URL: http://tools.sucuri.net/?page=tools&title=check-url - Get the real URL (plus safe options) out of a tiny/short one. Try now, Verify.

* Long-shore.com Expand: http://long-shore.com/expand - Expand a short URL.

* Link Spy: http://linkspy.org/ - Reveal. 'Many links redirect to Spyware, Malware, Phishing, or Obscene sites. Some of these also make multiple redirections to hide the destination URL. Link Spy reveals the destination URL and identifies each redirection that was taken. Be safe when surfing the internet and take the extra time to look before you click.'

So you have 10 links to expand a short URL, OK.?.. Your (Tweeter, Facebook, ..) unknown link become very very expanded ..:D

... - then 5 more 'Unshorted URL' online services, because you seem to love them well:

* Extract URL by URLVoid: http://www.urlvoid.com/extract-url/ - Retrieve the original URL.

* Unshorten.com: http://www.unshorten.com/ - Enter a short URL to see its real location.

* unshort.me: http://unshort.me/ - Unshort.me let you unshorten any short URL. Unshort.

* Unshorten.It: http://unshorten.it/ - Unshorten It!.. 'We tried, oh man we tried, but we simply couldn't figure out how to unshorten this darn thing. If you think that this is in error, you may want to try your request again.' - Obviously I missed something this time .
So it responds:
'Explaining Unshorten.It!
Is that short URL you're visiting REALLY going to contain cute kittens, or instead is it going to mug you and steal your wallet? Unshorten.It! takes any bullets for you, analysing the website for safety and letting you see it before you decide whether to proceed.
As well as telling you the URL that the link points to Unshorten.It! provides you with the title and description tags of the target web page, a screenshot of the target website, safety ratings provided by Web of Trust and will alert you if the website is found in the HPHosts blacklist.*'


* UNSHORTEN ME: http://unshorten.me/ - click on ENTER URL then GO ..

* .. and cute read for you, developer, Consistently Infrequent by tonybreyal: http://tonybreyal.wordpress.com/2011/12/13/unshorten-any-url-created-using-url-shortening-services-decode_shortened_url/

Surprised to see this in the Other Security Products forum, should it be in the Safe Online Practices one? :)
