Link Anonymizer

Anonymously visit links in YOURLS, including referring sites and original URLs.

Sometimes you want to click a link, but you don’t want to have your YOURLS installation be the refferer. So you right click, copy the URL, paste it in your address bar.

Instead, use Link Anonymizer to generate a link for you that will take you to an anonymizer service.

When you click the [anon] link, you will be first redirected through an anonymous referrer service of your choice.

Anonymously visit your own links.

Now you can have anonymous Traffic Sources > Referrers links

What service should I use?

You can use any service—there are many—but here are some options:

Thank yous

  • The key icon is from the Silk icon set by FamFamFam.
  • The anonymizer services are independently run – thanks for offering the free services!

Hi Zack,
Your support email with the katz co domain name in it doesn’t work. Whenever I email it I get a mailer-daemon warning email back.


I love this plugin but I’m wondering if there is a possibility to anonymize ALL urls in my database. I don’t want my shortener ever to be used as referer. So if a new link is shortened, it would be cool if the anonymize link is automatically associated to the entered url.

Best regards

can yu please add our services we have better protection with frontend firewall and antivirus system for redirect with out any spaming and we are hosted on cluster so 100% up time in different datacenters..
