Wix Media: Adding and Setting Up the Right Click Protect App

Protect your site from right-click downloads with a custom copyright notice. This is a great option if you want to prevent visitors from downloading images from your site or copying your text.
When a customer right-clicks a protected element on your site (e.g. an image or text) they see a copyright message which you can customize.

Important information

Please read through the following important information regarding the Right Click Protect app:
  • Currently, it is not possible to choose which site pages are protected with the Right Click Protect app. If this is something you'd like to see in the future, vote for that feature.
  • The Right Click Protect app's message is visible on your mobile site, however, right-click download protection itself is currently not supported on mobile devices.
  • If you have added the app more than once to your site, you will need to delete each instance of it separately.
  • This app does not provide 100% protection as visitors can still use the print screen function to copy an image, or access the images through your site's source code (if they know how). The app does not protect against left click, meaning that visitors can highlight text and then use ctrl + C to copy. If this is something you'd like to see in the future, vote for that feature.
  • This app does not provide protection for third-party apps, embedded HTML content, embedded websites, or the Wix Stores product gallery.
