Is this URL safe to open


[link to this post]
 
I have been asked to open a web page whose address starts with ps://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/ - is it safe to open and what is the prefix ps all about?

I imagine that htt is missing from the start. i.e. should be https://www...... https is secure communication. Banks etc use it.

Most websites use it now (including my own) as http is being actively discouraged.
