Create McAfee Shortened URLs in Google Chrome

Yesterday we introduced you to McAfee’s new URL shortening service. Today we have an extension for Chrome that lets you create shortened URLs with a single click.

When you have a website that you want to create a shortened URL for, just click on the toolbar button and a drop-down window will appear. The window will show the website’s original address and the new shortened URL. Highlight the shortened URL and copy it using “Ctrl + C” (right clicking does not work) and paste it where needed.

Note: You can see yesterday’s McAfee article here.
