Q: Why might I see a redirect page?

A: There are only two reasons why you might see a redirect page when clicking on a Grabify link. Users in the EU will see the redirect page as a result of the GDPR. If you send a link to someone outside of the EU, they will not see the redirect page.
For users outside of the EU, the redirect page is a result of the Smart Logger tool. Turning off Smart Logger will remove the redirect page, however you will not get the additional information that Smart Logger provides.
