How to View the Entire URL in Safari

If you are using Safari in your iPhone or iPad, you will notice that the URL of the site that you are visiting only shows the main domain of the site. It does not show the exact location you are in by showing the full URL of the site you are on. This is not a problem most of the time. But if you want to copy or to know the URL of the site you are on, you need to know how to view the entire URL in Safari.

Viewing a Site’s Full URL in Safari

Here is a quick way on how to view the entire URL in Safari:

  • Landscape Mode

When viewing the full URL of a site on Safari, you need to set the screen mode to landscape by simply tilting your gadget to the side. This will give you more space to view most of the URL on the address bar.

  • Tap and Hold

Once the screen mode is in landscape, tap and hold the address bar. This will reveal the full URL of the site but you most likely won’t be able to see it fully as the screen of your gadget may be too small.

  • Copy and Paste

If you want to see the entire address, copy it and paste it on a notepad app.  If you’re looking to buy a URL, go here.

Knowing how to view the entire URL in Safari is a very useful trick to help you track where you are and feel more secured in navigating around sites so keep it in mind.
