How to protect images from being downloaded


I was wondering if there is a way to protect images on my website from being “right clicked” and saved?

Thank you :cherry_blossom:

Hey there @Therese_A - fantastic question. Hope you don’t mind, I have moved this thread to the How-To section and adjusted the headline.

I would guide you to this article on Stack Overflow that gives you some great ideas and workarounds.

Like to quote an important point though:

there is no 100% protection against image download

Aside from that, some Sitejetters have used the solution

img {
   pointer-events: none;

… that usually worked quite well.

Thank you for your answer and proper categorisation :slightly_smiling_face:
Might I ask where I am to apply that code, as I am clueless to the coding part? :sweat_smile:

Hey Therese,

just put it in the CSS - right on top. If you are unsure, let me know and ID and I can set it there as an example :slight_smile:
