Safely check the URL befor clicking it.

With the growing amount of Spam, Fishing, and Mellicues messages, I needed a tool that would help me safely check the URL before I clicked it.
Correct, there are other options like VirusTotal, but I wanted something more, like getting a Preview of the final URL or even getting IP Information of the hosted service,
So I combined them all into one lite and simple application.


With SafeUrl, you can get the following information:

  • Report Summary Using VirusTotal)
  • Report Info.
  • Site Preview
  • Website Info:
    • Final URL.
    • Redirect Chain (If there are redirections).
    • Outgoing Links.
    • HTML Meta information.
    • Trackers (Google Tag, Analytics, Pixels, and more).
    • Ip Information Using IpInfo.


  • VirusTotal) free API is limited to 4 calls/minute.
  • IpInfo free API is limited to 50,000 calls/moneh.


In order to start working with SafeUrl, you need to register for free [VirusTotal)] ( account and get a valid Free API Key.
