If you can get untrack.me as a domain then you are golden!

Regardless, I think untrackme is more suitable in today’s vernacular.

Many people read emails in plain text and I think a lot of people would like to prevent tracking, but without resorting to plain text. Which your app does.

Only issue I see is that this something that should be directly integrated into email clients, not something I would get a third party app for (how do we trust you to forward emails to - I wouldn’t for work purposes, but would definitely consider for personal purposes).

The bigger issue is not so much tracking but spam in email inboxes from newsletters and other email blasts from distribution lists.

I really liked your clean site and easy to read instructions.




Thanks for the feedback.

I agree that it would be better integrated as part of an email client. But that's nothing something I can do. So I'm trying to do the next best thing.

I agree about the trust issue as well. Which is why I say ... only send publicly available email newsletters.

I don't expect people to forward private/confidential emails. Nor do I want them to.
