URL shortening service HideLinks shortens web page addresses with an added optional bonus: password security. If the URL you want to share (or store on your office computer, say) contains sensitive information, you can password-protect access to the link to avoid prying eyes from seeing confidential web sites. If you create a HideLinks account, you can change the URL or password in the future.
