We've received all the image-intensive marketing emails that often contain hidden code that tracks our online activity.
Marketing companies load their emails with tracking pixels Monitor where and when you open an email. This is not only a violation of privacy, but can also pose a significant security risk. If marketers can see all this information just by opening an email, imagine what nastier operators could do with the same technology. If you are worried about malware or just want to protect your privacy, there is a simple solution: Block the automatic loading of images.
By adjusting some settings, you can take control of your privacy and avoid potential disruption to your account. Learn how to turn off loading images in Gmail, Apple's Mail app, and Microsoft Outlook both on the desktop and on your phone, or enable them if you want them to appear.
