With the Bitly browser extension for Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge, you can add Bitly to your browser's toolbar and quickly shorten the link for a page while viewing it, without leaving.
To shorten links with the Bitly browser extension:
- When you're on the page you'd like to share, click the Bitly icon in your browser toolbar.
- Select your domain (bit.ly or your custom domain, if you have one).
- Choose whether to add UTM parameters. If so, add them in the relevant fields. If you choose to use UTM parameters, Source, Medium, and Campaign are required.
- Click Create link.
Just like that, your short link is ready to be shared. Click QR Code to quickly create one for your shortened link. You can also add a title, custom back-half, and tags before sharing.
To change the Destination URL, use the Bitly web app. Scroll down on this screen and select Edit destination URL on Bitly app.
