Just as people have names, web sites have URLs. A short URL will be easier to remember and to use when spreading the word among your friends about interesting Internet content. Plus, some applications actually set URL length limitations, before allowing those URLs to circulate. That's why URL shortening tools are just the thing for all those who want to be the heralds of the latest and hippest pieces of Internet news.
No harm in asking a few questions to find out who's behind the door. But what if you're not that much into checking who you're talking to or what you're getting into? That's where BitDefender steps in.
When using saf.li for URL shortening you get the added benefit of antivirus and antiphishing scans, which allow you and your friends to safely share content over the Internet. A saf.li check on your URL means that all those who are going to use it are safe from malware and from personal data theft attempts.
