I hope you are well and that you are having a great week.
Did you know there's a way for people to tell if you've opened their emails or not? They can also see the following:
1. How many times you opened the email
2. Your location each time when you opened the email
3. If you forwarded it to anyone else
This practice which is employed by both marketing companies and individuals is called pixel tracking and there is a really easy way to block it on Gmail:
Log into your Gmail account
Click the gear icon in the upper righthand corner
Scroll down until you see the Images row
Select Ask before displaying external images
Make sure to scroll down and save changes
