Block trackers from seeing what you do with your emails​

  • Tracking your emails to know if the receiver has opened them or not is awesome, so is being immune to it! Trocker gives you the latter! It blocks attempts by email trackers and won't let them track what you do with the emails you receive.
  • You will be amazed to see how many of the emails you receive have trackers in them!
  • Privacy policy: We neither gather nor use any data about you or your browsing behavior. In fact, Trocker runs locally on your machine and does not send or receive any information from the Internet.
  • Trocker is open source so you can trust it. Source code available on GitHub.
  • Trocker keeps you safe in all webmails, including Gmail™, Yahoo! and Outlook.com. It has additional capabilities in Gmail, Inbox and Outlook.com. In these 3 webmails, it has a heuristic tracker detection that detects and blocks almost any email tracking attempt, even from not well-known trackers!
  • Trocker is very efficient as it only gets activated when a tracker is detected.

What do you do then, inspect the code?
Reading through reviews, articles and checking the permissions it requires. Trocker for example doesn't need full access to the URLs to work, only if you want to enable some advanced blocking. He even warns the user that enabling this will allow the extension to read all your data so it's up to the user to decide if he wants to enable it or not.

And no, I'm not reading the code as this is out of my knowledge to be honest, but that the software is open source and out there for quite a while is a nice bonus. Weren't you also using LocalCDN? As far as I know he also doesn't really share much information about himself.
