Create Safe And Short URLs Using [BETA]


Everyone knows about McAfee, leading antivirus and security software company. McAfee apparently launched its own URL Shortener

Through TechCrunch, I came to know is using, and promotes, McAfee Labs’ real-time Global Threat Intelligence solution, which aims to protect users from new threats before they strike by using millions of sensors to gather real-time intelligence from host IP addresses, Internet domains, specific URLs, files, images, and email messages.

McAfee URL Shortener

Below you can see the original URL and the Shorten URL as well. It works similar to other URL shorteners, but I think it scans the shorten URL.

Original URL :

Shorten URL :

McAfee Short URL

As of now, is in beta stage. It functions similar to other URL Shortening service, didn’t find anything interesting, though they say it is safe. πŸ™‚

Do you think this URL Shortener will be a different one? Please share your opinions below.

      This is a good idea. Hopefully more people in the future use this feature. And help make the web a safer place πŸ™‚

      We just updated the look and feel of the site – would love to have your feedback!

      There is always a risk associated with the shortened url, because we are unaware of the original url, it may be something spammy or undesired. As McAfee is a well known Security Application, its shortened urls shall be trustworthy.

    • wordgeist

      is great mcafee is offering this service

    • Conversational Agent

      This is nice, at least now we know that the short url posted is reliable and safe. They may not be so much on what we truly need but at least we know that what we click is a trusted site.

      […] Create Safe and Short URLs Using [BETA]: Well, here’s some good news. Shortening your URLs can now ensure protection through virus scans. Pradeep shares with us his latest find. […]

      There is nothing as such in it. But the brand name Mcafee takes it to a different level & people would trust it a lot πŸ™‚

    • chandan

      It is really one very interesting news for us. Thank you brother.

      Mcfee is always secure to use……

      I don’t exactly see how they backup their claim of making a safe sort url, why don’t you test it by making a sort url that leads to some hacking/cracking/adult site… am sure it will let you go their…

      and the 4 letter shortner is not cool either, is already long πŸ˜›

      though, macafee is a trusted brand, and i have a paid version of macafe running at my end, but am not exactly sure how safe an url shortner can be anyway…

    • Arif Nezami

      Nice stuff, but i like from bitdefender ….

    • vikash

      yes it make sure that you are accessing secure content

    • Thu Nguyen

      Hi Pradeep,

      This is definitely a smart way to market URL shorteners, with protection! Thanks for the review and heads up.

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        Thanks Thu Nguyen for your 1st comment here. πŸ™‚

        And yes, many malicious URLs are shorten and passed, this one from McAfee is really a good one to protect! Cheers. πŸ™‚

    • esoftload

      wow.. now twitter link will be more safe…..

    • Aaron

      Very cool Pradeep. I think it is a very good idea to have trustworthy scanned links, and am not surprised at all that McAfee took this step.
