I have explained about 5 best URL/link softener websites in one of my previous post “Shorten URL links with 5 best URL Shortner.”Which help you shortening a link/URL into small URL so that it becomes easy for you to remember or share.  Now in this post I explain a service which will show the original link of a short URL. Now this important and handy why? Think a situation when some spammers send you link in the short form and with the name of your friend or relative. You don’t know what’s it and thinking it’s a legitimate link you click and it makes the spammers access your system or create variety of problem and hard days for you ahead. So if you are not sure about any such link the LinkPeelr would help you. Only you need to copy the short link in the text box and click Peel. That’s it LinkPeelr shows you the original link of the short URL. I hope this will be a very handy site have with nowadays since short links are becoming very common these days and vulnerability though them have increased.
