Many sharing services offer short web link addresses.
Filekiwi does not have this feature. The reason we do not offer this is that it does not align with our service direction, which prioritizes secure transmission.
Once the Webfolder address is saved on the server, it becomes more likely to eventually access the original file.
Nevertheless, there are cases where a shortened URL is essential. You need to enter the web address directly into the browser’s address bar.
For this purpose, we have provided a one-time short link.
For instance, it shortens a lengthy Webfolder address like file.kiwi/d5a99345#s3NNAapa85bcf8PE_FptBA to a shorter one like url.dev/8P862Lo. The difference from other services is that we only store the original address for a limited time.
You can choose to keep it for either 5 minutes or 90 hours.
After creation, entering url.dev/8P862Lo in the web browser’s address bar will redirect you to the original source, but the link will not work after the selected time has passed.
This feature utilizes the API provided by the url.dev service. When created, the Webfolder address is temporarily stored in this service.
Here’s how to use it.
