Email tracking will not trigger read notification if a test email is sent and opened in the same Google Chrome browser. So, if you send a test email message from your email account to another account of yours in the same Google Chrome browser, your test won’t work.

Free Email Tracker has the intelligence to detect that the sender is actually reading their own email. So when you open your own email, you will not receive any notifications. We don’t want you to receive inaccurate information about whether your email message is read or not.

Instead, if you want to test Free Email Tracker, you’ll need to ensure the following 2 criteria:

  1. You’ll need to send your test email to a different email account (i.e., tracking will not work if you send the email to yourself)
  2. You’ll need to open your test email using a website browser in which you are not logged into cloudHQ
  3. If you are opening the email on the same computer then you need to wait at least 1 minutes (60 seconds). Our tracker will ignore requests from the same computer for 60 seconds.

If you’re still unsure about how to test this Chrome Extension, we suggest to send your test emails to a colleague or friend.
