WhoReadMe – Track Your Emails

This online service lets you sign up for free and track your emails to see if they arrive, when they get opened, if they get deleted without being opened, if somebody else opens the email rather than the recipient, and if any attachments were opened. One of the most frustrating things about email is not knowing whether or not they arrive and if the person is deliberately not responding or if they never received your communication.

WhoReadMe can go beyond tracking what happens to your emails. It can also tell you the recipient’s IP Number, their browser and also their location on the map. This will all be invisible to the recipient. To use WhoReadMe you sign up on the website, click on an activation email and then you can send any emails you want tracked via the website, but your usual email address will be given to the recipient. There is a limit on the number of emails you can track per day, but they can have a number of CCs on them.


FireFound – Firefox Add-On to Find Stolen Computers

This website lets you get a free download of FireFound which is an add-on for the Firefox browser, and also the mobile version Fennec. It helps you locate your computer or mobile phone if they get lost or stolen. It works by sending a secure message to a central server each time your computer or mobile phone are moved to give the location, and you can log into the server and check up on them at any time. The geolocation data is approximate so the police need to be involved in tracking the equipment more precisely. The website warns not to try to retrieve it yourself.

The location data is encrypted and can’t be accessed by anyone without your password. If you realise your computer or mobile phone have been taken you can alert police and also clear your browsing history so that the thieves can’t access your private and financial information. FireFound can also alert you if your computer or mobile phone have been moved, so you would know quickly if anybody else had taken them. The code for the server is open source, so you could also run your own FireFound server.
