What is Safe Links Cleaner?
Safe Links Cleaner is an Edge add-on that corrects and enhances the display of links mangled by Microsoft Defender for Office 365 Safe Links. It makes plain text links readable, provides a tooltip to preview the original link, allows copying of the original link, and ensures quoted messages retain readability.
Microsoft Defender for Office 365 Safe Links is a technology that rewrites links in mail messages, so links to unsafe sites can be disabled. The downside is that the resulting links are hard to read in plain text mail, and it's difficult to see the actual target of the link before clicking on it.
This extension does several things:
The display of any safe links is changed to show the original link. When clicking the link, the safe link is still used. This makes plain text links readable again.
A tooltip is added to all safe links showing the original link. This lets you check the target before clicking.
A "copy original link" menu item is included in the context menu for safe links. Sometimes you need to access the original link, and this lets you do that.
When responding to a message containing safe links, they are rewritten to their original links so quoted messages are readable.
Safe Links Cleaner may not be safe to use and it requires some risky permissions. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.
Safe Links Cleaner has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.
