Have you ever received an email with a link and you were unsure whether to click it or not for fear of being a victim of a “phishing attack“? Or, while browsing a website you come across a link within an article and wonder, “Where will this link take me?” Before clicking on that link, take a sneak peak of where you will be re-directed. Safari users have a tool, that when enabled, will provide a view of the URL in the bottom left corner of your window, prior to clicking on it. This is a security tool that can prevent you from clicking on a potentially harmful website.
From the Safari toolbar > Click View > Click Show Status Bar
Now when you hover over a link on a webpage, you will see the address that you will be directed to in the lower left corner.
