If you're not sure where a Dub link will take you, you can check its destination before clicking on it by adding a
+ sign to the end of the short link.
For example, if you want to check the destination of the short link
dub.sh/github, you can type
dub.sh/github+ into your browser's address bar and press
This will take you to a page that shows you the destination URL of the short link, as well as the respective social media preview for the URL.
If you suspect that a Dub link is malicious, you can report it by clicking on the
🚩 button on the link inspector page.
This will open up a form where you can provide more information about the malicious link.
We take these reports very seriously and will review and take appropriate action as soon as possible.
