Prevent short link services from tracking you
This addon protects your privacy by preventing short link services from tracking you. - Access short links for you to prevent the short link providers to track you - Check links against a blacklist to prevent access to a harmful website hidden behind a short link - Remove known tracking parameters from the urls behind the short links (e.g. the facebook tracking parameter utm_source) - Remove as many url parameters as possible by keeping the same website result. This helps to remove tracking parameters that are so far unknown If you experience a short link service that is not yet supported by this plugin, please enter the short link manually on unshort.link and after the redirect restart your browser. The new short link service will now be automatically added to the plugin. Please be aware that for being able to provide you that functionality the short links have to be send to our server (https://unshort.link). Only urls with the domains listed on https://unshort.link/providers are send to us all the other ones you access stay on your machine only and are never transmitted. --- Icon made by Freepik (https://www.flaticon.com/authors/freepik)
- (2021-05-22) Rezwan Haque: like it but fails occasionally.. Please fix.
- (2019-11-16) Simon Frey: Easy setup. Just install and than it does all automatically. I like the feature that you can add more shortlink providers via the website, but still that process could be a bit easier

I like this extension due to its small size and interface. However, frequently this extension is showing error especially when too many tabs are open. Please fix that. Also, this extension should show the original site link before moving by clicking or auto-redirecting to the site.
