Gmail will now display all images for you

| Thursday, December 12, 2013 | |

Images on Gmail were never displayed by default. As it could compromise the security of your computer or mobile devices. Not displaying images was one of the security measures that Gmail used.

The new image handler will server all the images from its own secure proxy server. Making images secure, and all the images will be checked for viruses and malware. This, is a check to keep Gmail users free of attacks, it doesn't matter whether email is received from a known or unknown user.
