I would like to encrypt some bookmarks so that one who may be using my computer could not access some of the sites. I have not been able to find any secure bookmarking sites, but have been suggested that I use a URL Short-ner that requires a password. Thus, I would use the "shortened" link with a password to access these private (to me) sites.

What I cant seem to find is info on how secure these sites/links are. Are the passwords "attached" within the ink, or do they go through an outside computer/server to store the PW info???

I do realize that we are not talking "super secure" in any case here.. My big concern is that I don't want my info accessible to others or logged..

Hope this makes sense :woot: Below are some websites that offer this service... Any other suggestions info welcome!

You don't say what browser you're using, but this is one option with firefox.
