Why Choose Whag Over Traditional Link Shorteners?

How can we ensure the links we share and receive are trustworthy? Traditional link shorteners, while convenient, often mask the true destination, making them a favorite tool for malicious actors. Whag's Verified Links system is here to change the game.

Enhanced Link Validation

Whereas standard link shorteners might mask potentially harmful destinations, Whag's system is rigorous. Before achieving the "Verified" badge, links are meticulously vetted. Only authenticated users can generate these links, and each destination must be SSL encrypted and absent from the Blocklist.
