How to Stop People Tracking Whether You'Ve Opened Their Email

Some trackers can even obtain people's IP addresses and pinpoint locations with accuracy, and this isn't something that most people realize - even people who should take precautions.

This is information that should be well known for safety reasons alone.

I turned off automatic image loading so long ago I don't even remember what it was like to get emails with images. Messages load faster without images, and if an email does come that you want to see them, you can load them one-time-only easily. I won't be turning them back on wholesale any time soon. Thanks.

More important is the move by telecom companies to block robo calls I think. The idea is to block non-used numbers such as one way outbounds from the IRS and many businesses. The info reported here is well known and has been touted for some time. I see that this is at least a third party repeat of a work around and has previously been on C2NN. Perhaps it is good to repeat this but Science and Tech is hardly the correct area.
