Mouse input is the most common method for an average user to attempt downloading a digital asset from a website. By using Photolock™ you can limit mouse actions or entirely block it.
There are three available lock options for Mouse Actions

Right-Click lock is an excellent option if you want visitors to be able to copy and paste text content from your site, but you don't want them to copy/paste or Right-Click-Save your site's images.
By default, Right-Click Lock is turned on, and visitors to your site will not be able to right-click or right-click-save any image content.
Full-Screen Click Lock
Full-Screen Click Lock is an extended Right-Click lock option. It disables right-clicking on your entire website.
The following actions will be disabled when this lock is activated:
- A user will not be able to copy-paste your images and text content using a mouse or touchpad.
- A user will not be able to open the native browser right-click menu anywhere on your site.
Drag & Drop Lock
Some browsers and operating systems make it easy for images to be saved through mouse drag and drop action. Photolock™ can prevent this functionality and better protect your photos. Drag & Drop Lock is activated by default.
