Email Tracking -

I copy myself on emails with three different email addresses to make sure my campaigns are being sent. The campaign details show that I opened my personal email on another device when I have neither opened it, forwarded or have other devices outside of my cell phone that I use.  The report also shows emails from certain addresses that are opened immediately with all the links clicked which I know that is impossible for all of the links to be clicked at the same precise time. This makes me question the validity of the reports.

Hello @ptatum,


Apple Mail Privacy Protection is a new feature that released to iOS 15, iPad OS 15, MacOS Monterey and watchOS8 on September 20, 2021. In the Apple Mail App, Mail Privacy Protection will proxy the downloading of the invisible pixel embedded into the message by our servers to record open data. When this feature is on, Apple Mail will automatically trigger the Open tracking pixel, even if the contact didn't actually open the email. 


Constant Contact's technical team is analyzing our current capabilities, and we are committed to providing reports that are accurate and timely, without compromising user security and privacy. In the meantime, we recommend including clickable links and a call-to-action in your emails. Read More links can be especially valuable to drive traffic and boost engagement.
