What is Unravel URL?

Unravel URL will get you orignal URL from shortened or tracking URLs. It comes handy when the tracking URL is blocked in your local network because of Ad blockers like Pi-hole or NextDNS. Remember those unsubscribe links that your Ad blocker blocks? I made this for them.

How does it work?

Unravel URL tries to read the encoded-URL from the URLs. If it can’t find one, it will use fetch() to get the target URL. Common tracking parameters (e.g. Google UTM) are also removed. All of these are done using Netlify Functions.

How about privacy?
