Dates in emails sent from Marketing Cloud show as hyperlinks on mobile devices

Knowledge Article Number 000213219
Mobile devices, such as those using the iOS or Android operating system, display text this way because they treat it as a date that can be added to the mobile calendar. For example, if an email is sent out with text that is a date, such as "on March 1, 2015," the text is shown as a blue hyperlink even though there is no blue text or a hyperlink in the email.
This is functioning as designed by the Operating System developers. Please note that using a blue background in your email can mask dates that are included in the email when it is viewed on a mobile device.
