Reveal the True URL of a Link

To show the actual destination of a link, "hover to discover" with your mouse.

For a touch-based device that doesn't use a mouse, you can do the equivalent by long-holding the link.

Simply press and hold the link, rather than tap, to reveal the true URL. One way to remember this is "don't get sold; press and hold."

You can use the same method to copy or share a link.
