I was wondering: is it possible for other people to find out who created a short
goo.gl URL (that I created using my own Google account)? That is, can they trace it back to my Google account?
From Google's site:
The Google URL Shortener provides the following safeguards to address user privacy concerns:
- The goo.gl short URLs do not publicly reveal the identity of the user who created that URL mapping.
- The goo.gl short URL history for a user is accessible only when signed in using that Google Account.
- The analytics for all goo.gl short URLs are displayed in aggregate.
So, only Google knows who created goo.gl short links.
