TLDR: Simply visit and you'll get an online link sandbox. My team and I run virtualized browsers in the cloud, providing you with a safe, isolated environment to test and interact with websites or examine potentially dangerous links without risking your own system's security.

What Is a Link Sandbox?

A link sandbox is a cybersecurity mechanism designed to safely inspect web links, documents, files, and other potentially unsafe content without risking the integrity of the primary system or network. It operates by creating an isolated environment, often referred to as a "sandbox" where the accessed links can be closely monitored and analyzed without allowing any malicious activities to affect the user's system or data. A link sandbox is particularly valuable for examining short links (such as "" or ""), downloads, PDFs, Word documents, and attachments that could be disguised as benign but harbor malicious intent, such as malware, ransomware, or phishing attempts. By viewing them in a constrained environment, the link sandbox provides a protective layer that prevents direct interaction with the user's operating system, personal files, and local network, thus mitigating the risk of cybersecurity threats.

Why Is It Important To Open Links in a Sandbox?

Using a sandbox to open links is a vital cybersecurity strategy, as it provides a protective barrier against malware, phishing, and other malicious activities by isolating potentially harmful content from a user's primary operating system. This approach ensures safe interaction with untrusted or unknown links on the Internet, mitigating the risk of security breaches and protecting sensitive information. Adopting sandbox technology is a key preventive measure in safeguarding against cyber threats.

What Is Browserling?

Browserling is a link sandbox platform that provides users with access to sandboxed browsers for securely testing and interacting with websites across different operating systems and browser versions. It enables users to safely examine potentially harmful links and online content by isolating the browser session from the user's main system, thus protecting against malicious software and threats from the Internet. This tool is particularly valuable for web developers, QA professionals, and cybersecurity experts who require a secure environment to test browser compatibility and website security.

Who Uses Browserling?

Browserling has now become the link sandbox of choice for security professionals, and it's used by hundreds of thousands of users around the world every month. Browserling's customers include governments, states, cities, banks, stock exchanges, universities, newspapers, Fortune 100, Fortune 500 companies, and private multi-billion dollar companies.
