Track Gmail attachments

See when recipients open your Gmail attachments with docTrackr

This Chrome extension lets you encrypt and track Gmail attachments, set permissions for them

Some e-mail attachments square measure a lot of sensitive than others, even as some e-mail recipients square measure more experienced than others. Chrome extension docTrackr permits you to encode Gmail attachments, set permissions, and remotely destroy them. It conjointly alerts you once a recipient opens or prints AN attachment, therefore you'll decision shenanigans consecutive time your flighty friend claims to not have received AN attachment.


When docTrackr installs, it adds a button next to the regular attachment button in Gmail's compose window. It also adds a button to the right of Chrome's address bar that provides a link to docTrackr's dashboard. Click on docTrackr's attachment button to select a PDF to encrypt and attach. At present, docTrackr supports only PDFs but states that support for other file formats is coming soon.

When you hit Send on an email with a secure docTrackr attachment, the extension opens a window where you can select access rights. 

Your choices are: can view, can print, can edit. You can also select an expiration date for accessing the attachment. Click the Secure & Share button to send the e-mail.


On the receiving end, the attachment must be opened using Adobe Reader. I was unable to open a docTrackr using Preview in OS X, for example. Also, for a view-only attachment, the print button in Adobe Reader was grayed out.

You'll receive AN e-mail alert once your recipient opens the attachment. you'll conjointly read the activity of all the Gmail attachments you sent victimization docTrackr on its dashboard. And if you forgot to line AN expiration date or set one too so much within the future, you'll click the Disable button on the dashboard for AN attachment. there is conjointly AN alter button to reverse course.
