Well we have found out a simple tool called “Ugly Email” which will do this job for you. Ugly email checks all your emails and exposes the ones being tracked. Each tracked mail is shown with an “evil eye” to easily recognize suchemails.Thisway you can actually protect Gmail (since the current version is applicable only to gmail).
Currently, this works by detecting pixels from Yesware, Streak, MailChimp, Mandrill, Bananatag and Postmark. They are actively working on adding more.
Here are the simple steps to make it work:
Open your Google Chrome browser on your PC.
Search for “Ugly Email” in google chrome webstore to save yourself from tracked emails.
Click “Add to Chrome” in the new tab and you are good to go.
The next time you receive an e-mail, a tiny eye symbol will be there. It is an indication if it is vetted by any tracking tool.
This tool only works with Gmail and is currently available as a Chrome extension. They are working to add Firefox support very soon.
Some of you might not see eye symbol on any of your e-mail, that’s because you got no vetted mails. Congrats
