There are two ways of turning off the CANDDi Gmail plugin depending on whether you wish to turn off tracking for specific emails, or if you wish to remove CANDDi from Chrome/ Gmail entirely.

Pausing the plugin

You’ll be glad to know that pausing your CANDDi tracking on specific emails is super simple. If you’re sick of your personal/ internal emails clogging up your Gmail plug in, this is the option for you. Sometimes you just need to ignore your colleagues in peace, right?

New Message

If you start to compose a new email in Gmail, you should see the CANDDi logo (three small circles) next to the send button. If you hover over the CANDDi icon, you’ll see two options, track email opens and track email links.

To switch these off, all you have to do is untick the boxes.

Turning the plugin off
