How safe is CU8.in?
Be careful on the websites where you specify personal data: name/surname, credit card number, phone, address. Many phishing services steal personal info to use it in criminal purposes.
We want you to trust CU8.in and wish doubts never enter your mind. Here're the four essential security requirements CU8.in meets.
GDPR – recently adopted legalization describing personal data security and how it must be regulated. It means that if a website gathers personal data from people in Europe (or if your code is used by sites that do), the website is under the GDPR rules.
The types of personal data CU8.in collects are cookies, email addresses, usage data, names, company names and IP address. CU8.in stores these data securely and never shares it with any third-party services.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is a security level for protecting transmitted information between a server and a user's browser.
SSL certificate ensures users to confidently enter private information such as account login data, or credit card numbers. SSL secures data from third-party services as well as Internet hackers. Note that Google blocks sites, that do not support SSL, and provides protected sites with a better search engine ranking.
You can check if a website is secured by yourself. Just note, that sites with HTTP are dangerous and we don't advise specifying personal data there. The websites with HTTPS are secured.
CU8.in is an encrypted service, so the official website URL starts with https. Moreover, all short links you create on CU8.in are also https-locked.
What if your target link has virus or malware? To secure you, CU8.in checkes if target links has malware or not.
If malware found, we show redirect window with a message that the target site has virus.
Know your target URLs before visit
