This site is a redirector.
I made this because there are many bots on reddit that attempt to analyze the link and then reply to your post.
Many of those bots don't have an opt-out feature.
This method is in no way fool proof but works for all bots that don't actually visit the URL.
This script is open source, you can obtain it here. It encrypts the link you submit, this makes it impossible for a bot to know the content without accessing this site. You can set your own key, this makes links encoded on your server unique to yours.
Each link will look different, even if you submit the original link multiple times.
You can use the API to generate links.
Send an URL encoded POST request to
You will receive a JSON object with these keys:
- url: This is your submitted URL
- enc: This is the encrypted Link that has to be appended to 'base'
- base: This is the base URL that the 'enc' data has to be appended to
- rating: This is the Google Safebrowsing API result. If it's not an empty string, visit 'base'+'enc' to get more details on the problem.
In no event shall the provider of this "Link redirector" be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special, exemplary, or consequential damages (including, but not limited to, procurement of substitute goods or services; loss of use, data, or profits; or business interruption) however caused and on any theory of liability, whether in contract, strict liability, or tort (including negligence or otherwise) arising in any way out of the use of this application, even if advised of the possibility of such damage.
This site uses Google SafeBrowsing API to determine if a link is safe to visit,
this means that every link submitted to this site or visited by users is sent to Google for analysis.
This API is in no way a safe way to test link safety and the results should merely be interpreted as a hint. Users should generally be very cautious when an encrypted link leads to an unexpected or unfamiliar site.
