About

Onlinelinkscan is meant to help users avoid potentially dangerous sites. But no automated tool can be 100% accurate, even when all the results are listed as safe, do not assume automatically the site is safe to visit. Also, look at the date of the last scan to determine how effective these results are. Feel free to re-scan the url using the scan box above.

Onlinelinkscan uses various well known link scanning services to check websites for malware and phishing.

When determing how safe is this link to visit, its important to consider the context of the link in question. How did you come by this link? Was it in an email? Do you know the sender? Even if you know the sender, often times hackers can spoof, pretend to be, someone you know. Look at the content of the message, does this message make sense coming from this person? Is this link on a reputable site you trust?

Also this site is not recommended for use with links that contain downloadable files, such as files with .zip endings. There are other website that specifically deal with downloadable files. One good site isĀ Virustotal.com
