Welcome to LinkLocker!LinkLocker makes it easy for you—and only you—to find the links you're looking for.
What is LinkLocker?
LinkLocker is a subscription bookmarking service with an emphasis on user privacy. We only keep a bare minimum of information about you on our servers, and we have no intention of sharing your data with anyone else, ever, for any reason. Please see our privacy page for more details. You might also familiarize yourself with our security policies and practices.
LinkLocker lets you store links (and associated metadata, about which more will be said later...read on!) to Web content, and helps you easily find those links later. As you find content you'd like to store for later, you can add links to those items of content to your LinkLocker account. Later, when you want to find a link, you can search for it, or retrieve it in a number of different ways—all of which are explained in more detail within our Help pages.
Anatomy of a Typical Link
Each saved link can contain a number of different sorts of metadata, which are used to help you organize and retrieve your links later:
How To Add Links:
- The best way to save content to your LinkLocker account is through the use of one of our browser extensions, which are currently available for Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. Just click the icons below to install, and then you'll be able to use your extension of choice to grab content whenever you're reading a Web page.
- Alternatively, you can also save a link to your LinkLocker account when you come across it in your browser using the LinkLocker bookmarklet. The bookmarklet is limited in capability in some ways when compared to the browser extensions, but it is useful on mobile devices and for use with browsers without extensions.
- In some cases, you may find it desirable to add a link manually on Add a Link page. Simply give your link a title, paste in a URL, and (optionally) write a short description. You can also elect to “star” your link; think of starred links as favorites, or things you’d like to stand out in some way from the rest of your data.
- Finally, you can use our data importer to import your links from a third-party service or app. We currently support imports from Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Instapaper, Pinboard, Pocket, Diigo, and Xmarks.
Tip: If you select a bit of text on the Web page before opening the extension or the bookmarklet, your selected text will populate the “description” input.
