The Apple Mail Privacy Protection launched in September 2021 for iOS 15 and macOS 12 Monterey devices. The purpose of MPP is to stop senders from using pixels to collect a user’s data. It also masks a recipient’s IP address, making it impossible to determine their location or track other online activity.
