A/B Testing unreliable
No indications of A/B testing were found.
Service providers may perform so-called A/B testing by sending different versions of Emails to different recipients to test which wording generates more clicks. While this is not a privacy problem in itself, it indicates that marketing analysis is taking place. More information.
Conditions for passing: This check fails if we observe indications that A/B testing is being performed.
Potential scan errors: This check works by finding and comparing related pairs of Emails sent to different identities. If Emails are matched incorrectly, this check may give incorrect results. As A/B testing is a random process, we may also miss instances of A/B testing if only a small number of identities is signed up for the service.Result wrong? report error
