Wordpress Changes urls

I set up my site's permalinks to display post name.  Yet, I noticed recently that when you first go to my site, the correct url displays for a second and then there is an extension added to the url.  How do I turn that off?

i.e. what SHOULD display
https://nsitedesigns.com/contact-nsite-designs

what displays
https://nsitedesigns.com/contact-nsite-designs/#.V9CCHLU1qbE

Are you using a caching plugin or CDN?

I am not using CDN.
Site works good on private window.
I cleared cache and still see problem.
Not sure what a caching plugin would be.

It's the Addthis URL tracking codes feature, specifically the 'address bar' one. There are instructions for disabling it, halfway down this page:

Thanks Lucas.

That is weird that it would suddenly appear?  If I disable tracking code, I suspect that it won't track any more.  What a crazy setup!

I checked on the advanced settings on AddThis and there is a place you can uncheck Address Bar Shares.  See screenshot.  I did this and it worked!addthis.gif
