Link Safety Test Tool (Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic)

Web is made up of links and not all the links are good. A large number of links on Internet are malicious and point to websites that can harm you computer or online accounts. Before clicking on a link, have you ever wondered if the link is safe to browse? Is it possible to know about a link’s safety status without actually going to that website?

Google Safe Browsing Diagnostic is an advisory tool that can tell you how Google perceives a link. Google reports about malicious software being downloaded from the provided link on to user’s computer without user’s consent.

We have prepared a small tool that fetches the link safety diagnostic from Google and show it to you. It’s easy to use. Just paste the link you want to test in the box given below and hit the button to get the diagnostic results.
