Yet another question about BOT activity

Has anyone else experienced BOT opens and not clicks?

Usually, by checking the activity I can identify BOTS due to the actions but this email send it seems many of the 137 opened were from the same domain and

Platform: unknown

Device: unknown

Would this be BOT activity, inflated/false opens?

So my question is: are there BOT mail scanners that open only and do not click?

 

Thanks,

Yes, in fact Apple is deliberately converting to a prefetch-every-link model in order to preserve anonymity. That is, since everyone appears to “open,“ you can’t distinguish one human activity from another.
