Embiggen – expand those tiny URLs

embiggen small Embiggen   expand those tiny URLs

Embiggen is a clever bit of technology that lets you expand those tinyURLs that are dotted around the place to make sure they’re not leading to somewhere dangerous. There’s a publisher version for website owners, but the interesting bit for most people will be the browser bookmarklet which you can use to check URLs yourself.

 TinyURL is a great service, but who knows what’s lurking on the other side of those links? They could be pointing at sites you’ve already visited, spam, malware, shock sites or other dangerous and time-wasting material. Protect yourself online by getting a heads-up! Embiggen uses a Dapper service to expand any mysterious TinyURLs into their full version.
