Some email advertising companies use a service called automatic tracking images, which act as tracking files to monitor your online activity.
These images do not cause real harm to your device, such as exposing the device to the risk of hacking and data theft.
But some users want to protect their privacy and private data, such as the time they opened the message and the rest of the data that companies want to collect.
By adjusting your service provider’s service settings, you can get rid of these images and prevent them from being uploaded.
