Support » Plugin: Disable Right Click and Content Copy Protection » What’s the point of disabling right-click if visitors can still use Ctrl-C ?

  • To be fair, this plugin should be called “Disable Right Click” and not “Disable Right Click and Content Copy Protection” because it doesn’t protect content from being selected and copied.

    I was surprised to see that I could still use Ctrl-C to copy and paste after using the mouse to select content.

    I thought maybe it wasn’t working properly in Firefox, so I tried in Chrome. Same issue. Both are latest versions.

    The title and description are misleading and waste time of people who rely on them to know what the plugin does.

    I’d be happy to update my review (or delete it) if you either:
    -rename the plugin to “Disable Right Click” and remove from the description that it “disables text selection” (because it doesn’t do that as far as I can see in both browsers).
    OR
    -add the functionality to prevent text selection because this alone will disable copying
    OR
    -add the functionality to prevent Ctrl-C because this alone will disable copying

    Before I uninstalled it, I didn’t even get to testing whether it prevents Ctrl-Alt-PrtSc copy functionality in the browser (another basic requirement for a plugin to prevent copying of content). I might be wrong but I’m guessing it doesn’t do that either.

    Hi @immeet94,

    Thanks for the update. I’ve upgraded the review rating.

    FYI, I’ve since decided to go with a non-plugin solution: javascript in the headers to disable copying, page inspection, and text selection, and redirecting to a notification page whenever is not detected in the browser using the noscript tag.
