Step 1: Install the Extension
Download the extension from the Chrome Google store by clicking this link. Select 'Add to Chrome.' This will automatically install the extension in your browser. A blink extension icon should now appear in the top right of your chrome browser. Please remember to reload any page you would like use the extension on before initial use.
Step 2: Creating blinks
To create blinks, select the text that you would like to protect and then press Ctrl+B (or right-click and select 'blink' in the pop-up menu). Your text will be replaced by a blink URL. Ta daaa! You just created your first blink!
Step 3: Viewing blinks
The extension is not required to view a blink URL, but it does do some nice things for you to make the experience easier and within the web page you are currently viewing.
We call this an ‘in-line’ display. The extension will recognize blink URLs and shorten them. When the blink URL is clicked, the extension will securely grab the blink contents and display them on the current page. No data at any point is passed through the current web page’s servers.
