Expands short URLs (e.g. is.gd, bit.ly, tinyurl.com etc) to reveal the original link. Any redirection links in between are shown as well which may contain malicious webpages that spy on your personal information or steal your IP address.

Easily accessible from Twitter and Facebook apps. Click on any shortened link in a tweet or a direct message to reveal the original link before opening it in the browser. Good practice to avoid opening malicious or ipspy links accidentally.

The app expands links via LongURL.org. It was created as part of a Bahrain Watch project to protect online activists from ipspy links. read more on https://bahrainwatch.org/ipspy/viewreport.php.
