TinyURLs are usually created when the original URL for a site or web page is too long to be remembered or shared on other sites. These URLs serve as web address abbreviations for easy access to specified web pages.

The original URL is copied and processed into a condensed version that is easier to share with others, as it doesn't require a long number of text characters. Some users opt to have them for permanent use, while others may need them temporarily. If the use is only temporary, you can easily delete them by accessing your account settings on the TinyURL website.
