How do I avoid getting invalid links in text messages?

Hello, I’m experiencing an issue with incoming text messages from at least one person. My friend is a new Android user (on the S6 from an iPhone) and is still getting used to the keyboard. In almost every text she sends me, she inadvertently double-taps the spacebar which automatically drops in a period (“.”), then she’ll backspace once and keep typing, so I get strings of text like this: “I was at and locked my my car.” The issue is, and I’m not sure if it’s her phone or mine, but those instances where two words are only separated by a “.” get interpreted as links to websites or domain names, so under the text in the body of her message, I’ll see a large preview window either saying ’’ is a website for sale, or in the odd chance that her mistake links to an actual website, the preview window will offer a preview of said website, similar to YouTube previews. How do I stop this from happening or is this a setting on her phone which needs addressed?
