Gravatar could be a privacy issue – it does hash out each email address, but with each query the service could create a history of which services retrieve the user’s avatar image, when and how often.

Mautic bietet aktuell keine Möglichkeit an, den Dienst einfach abzuschalten (Feature Request). However, a small hack allows you to skip the query.

To do this, go to the command line / shell of your Mautic installation.

  1. Navigate to the main directory of Mautic

  2. Use this command: “curl -L| git apply -v”
    Explanation: A single line in “GravatarHelper.php” will be replaced.

To be on the safe side, please always make regular backups of the system before applying such hacks.
