Gmail Made Changes for Images now showing on Emails

Google had made changes for images showing on emails, they are announce on this Thursday. Why Gmail asks you before showing images in emails ? they are try to protect us from unknown senders who might try to use images to compromise the security of your computer or mobile device.

New Google made improvements in how Gmail handles images, now we’ll see all images displayed in your messages automatically across desktop, iOS and Android. Instead of serving images directly from their original external host servers, Gmail will now serve all images through Google’s own secure proxy servers.

Emails accounts and email messages are more safe and secure, your images are checked for known viruses or malware, and you’ll never have to press that pesky “display images below” link again. With this new change, your email will now be safer, faster and more beautiful than ever.

According to Mail Chip, Google's explanation for how they are implementing their image caching system would actually make them "more accurate" when tracking unique open rates, because under the previous system the subscribers who opened emails without displaying images were effectively invisible to marketers. That's because previously, Gmail wouldn't display an image until users clicked a "show images" button. Because its image-caching system reduces the security and privacy risks from third-party images, Google is changing Gmail so that images load automatically when users open an email.

Those who prefer to authorize image display on a per message basis can choose the option “Ask before displaying external images” under the General tab in Settings. That option will also be the default for users who previously selected “Ask before displaying external content”.

Similar to existing features like default https access, suspicious activity detection, and free two-step verification, image proxying is another way your email is protected. This new improvement will be rolling out on desktop starting today and to your Gmail mobile apps in early 2014.
