    HideLinks is good for privacy to protect our personal bookmarks but I have more than 100 bookmarks ,so do I have type all 100 bookmarks to shorten which is very difficult to do manually.

    • Aibek

      Yeah I agree, it’s not really a soltuion for one-click protection for to your bookmarks but rather something to hide individual links.

  • Gonzalo
