But if you want more features for free like UNLIMITED Password Protected and custom backend links and then you can navigate here to create an account for free.


The benefits of registering you ask?

  1. Create UNLIMITED links that have custom backends. That is the short links that have backends that you decide instead of being allocated a random one. It adds more meanings to the short links are easier to understand and likely to get more clicks as they are trust worthy.
  2. Create UNLIMITED links that are protected by passwords. Each links has password that you decide. The user can only access the link if they have the password that was set by you.

What are the benefits of putting password on short URLs?

The short links that you create on any website are provided randomly and sequentially generated short links. The links are accessible to anyone and anywhere. For example this is the link that I have created using Bitly https://bit.ly/3C67Sq2 and this link just redirects you to Google (In your case it may be a secure document). Now by just changing the letter in the short link with r makes it http://bit.ly/3C67Sr2 which is a link created by someone else on whole other topic. Note: this is just an example and there is no guarantee where the link might take you to by incrementing just a character. And vice versa, someone might get to your document which was supposed to be private.

Password protected link do not directly redirect the user to the link, it ask for password that was set by you. For example, this https://alias.live/aUL1vV is a password protected link that also redirects you to google, but the difference is that it asks you password before it does so. The password for the link is google. Since this is an example link, the password has been set like this. We advise you to make the password more secure.

The links are kept private before the correct password is entered making your important link hidden even if someone gets their hands on the link, keeping your content secure.

This can be used to share documents, class assignments, social media links or anything that you want protected.
