Create a safe redirection
Write here the target URL you want your secure link to redirect to. Your private redirection link is self-destructed on the expiration date or when the opening limit is reached!
This service allows you to create a temporary URL redirection safe and easy to share. The secured link you'll get sends the user to the target link with one confirmation page, this is different from an URL shortener as the focus here is on privacy.
How do I use it and how does it work? It's very simple.
1) Paste the target URL:
The target link can be from a simple article on a website to a confidential account validation link with a secret token in the URL. This is the kind of use of this service. The priority here is privacy. You can use this service to share sensitive links where the original target link must not end up in a messenger conversation or anywhere on the internet.
2) Adjust your link lifetime settings:
We provide you with multiple settings to customize your temporary safe redirection according to your needs. You can make it last minutes or days, have a limited audience or an unlimited one. Registered users have access to a wider range of settings (check our features page for more details).
3) Submit your redirection:
By clicking the "generate my private link" button, you will send your sensitive target URL to our servers via a secure SSL tunnel, it will then be compressed, encrypted (with AES-256 using a strong random password) and then stored in our databases. We will recall you about the expiration conditions of your link in the confirmation page.
4) Share your private link with anyone:
The final step is to share your self destructing redirecting link via your favorite service. The share buttons we present you will pre-fill for you a message with the expiration date and click limit in addition to the link. Of course the temporary link is very simple to share via any mean and doesn't require any application to be opened, with only a simple browser you can open any BriefLink.
