WHAT IS SPYMAIL?

Spymails (or stalkermails) are emails containing hidden tracking codes that collect metadata about your email engagement. When you open a spymail, the sender of the email receives metadata that lead to privacy infringement and data LOSS.

Location: Your physical location based on IP address

Open: If, when, and how often you open the email

System: Device, operating system, and browser info

Subsequent comm: If and where you forward the email

WHY SPYMAIL IS DANGEROUS

Spymail puts businesses at risk of both financial disasters and customer reputation nightmares because the metadata it collects can:

  • Expose businesses to legal liability if opened or forwarded by employees

  • Enable outsiders to track physical locations of employees

  • Reveal sensitive internal email activity to outsiders

  • Empower sophisticated social engineering and phishing attacks

SPYMAIL AND PRODUCTIVITY

Did you know that spymails are often used by marketers and spammers to target engaged recipients with more follow ups? It works like this:

  1. When you open a spymail, you are tagged as “engaged” by the spymail sender;
  2. The spymail sending software adds you to a list of follow up (spam) recipients;
  3. Persistent sales reps often prioritize cold calls to people more “engaged” in such emails.

This may be ok for one employee, but multiply by your company’s headcount, and you’ll see substantial productivity loss from your team getting more spam emails and phone calls.
