How and Why to Expand Short URL's.

It has become quite popular to share the URL on internet in the form of short URL's and everything is just behind that URL, but at the same time the shortened URL can contains virus, malwares or anything else and people usually share them through any good URL shortening services such as bitly, tinyurl.

But before clicking on any shortened url it is wise to check whether they are credible or not, since you might not be aware where the shortened url might take you, and what is hidden behind them, or is there any redirection behind the shortened url.

So to avoid falling in any traps, it is good to expand the shortened URL before visiting them.

Example to expand url
I found various free services, which offers to expand the short URL's such as-

1.LongUrl-

http://longurl.org

2.Untiny-

 So, Next time before visiting any short URL, do expand them to ensure it's credibility.
