How to copy content from a protected website

by Johnson Daniel

Every good blogger out there is trying to get the most of their blog by creating good and readable content(s) on daily basis, while there are those bloggers that want to just lazy around and steal the content by directly copying another blogger’s article word-for-word and paste it on their blog.about

Sometimes, it is not the copy and pasting that angers some bloggers, it is the fact that they are not given credit for thier work, so this has made many bloggers, I included, disable the right-click button from their site. With the right click button disabled on a site, almost no user can just come to the site and copy the content and go, you won’t be allowed to do so.

To spoil the party, I want to let you know that despite disabling right-click on your website, your contents can still be copied by another person. If you notice now, you can copy the contents on my blog, that’s because I removed the plugin that helped me disable the CTRL+C function and right-click function. This is due to personal reasons.

To always cut the long story short, I’m going to show you some ways in which you can copy content from a protected website. This is for educational purposes only please be advised to always link back to the source where you copied the content from to stay safe.

How to copy content from a protected website

There are many ways through which you can copy content from a protected website, but in this article, we are going to take a look at two trusted procedures that we can take.

1. By disabling Javascript

JavaScript is one of the world’s most popular programming languages, primarily used to add automation, animations and interactivity to Web pages. Web developers use JavaScript for anything from automating simple tasks to creating complex Web pages that behave like desktop software applications.

Without this Javascript being enabled on your web browser, you can now have a chance to copy content from a protected website. Here’s how to disable Javascript on your web browser. Follow these steps to disable JavaScript in Google’s Chrome browser:


  • Open the Chrome browser and click on Chrome’s main menu button, which appears as three vertically-aligned dots located in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window.
  • From the menu, select Settings. Chrome’s Settings should now be displayed in a new tab or window, depending on your configuration.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the Settings page and click Advanced (in some versions of Chrome this may read Show advanced settings). The settings page will expand to display more options.
  • Under the Privacy and security section, and click Content settings.
  • Click on JavaScript.
  • Click the switch located next to the phrase Allowed (recommended); the switch will change from blue to a gray, and the phrase will change to Blocked. If you are running an older version of Chrome, the option may be a radio button labeled Do not allow any site to run JavaScript. Click the radio button, and then click Done to return to the previous screen and continue with your browsing session.

To enable or disable JavaScript in Internet Explorer, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Internet Explorer browser.
  2. Click Tools  in the upper-right corner of the browser window.
  3. Select Internet Options from the drop-down menu that appears.
  4. In the Internet Options window, click the Security tab.
  5. In the Security tab, click Custom Level… button.
  6. Scroll down the list (close to the bottom) and locate Active Scripting. Select DisableEnable, or Prompt to adjust your JavaScript settings.

To enable or disable JavaScript in Mozilla Firefox, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Firefox browser.
  2. In the address bar, type about:config and press Enter.
  3. Click the I accept the risk button in the center of the screen.
  4. In the search bar, type javascript.enabled.
  5. Right-click the result named javascript.enabled located below the search bar, and select Toggle.
  6. JavaScript is now disabled. To re-enable it, repeat this exact process.

To enable or disable JavaScript in Safari, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Safari browser.
  2. Click Menu  in the upper-right corner of the browser window.
  3. Select Preferences from the drop-down menu that appears.
  4. Click the Security tab and locate the Web content: section.
  5. The checkbox next to Enable JavaScript toggles whether or not it is on or off.

To enable or disable JavaScript in Opera, follow the steps below.

  1. Open the Opera browser.
  2. Click Customize and control Opera  in the upper-left corner of the browser window.
  3. Select Settings from the drop-down menu that appears.
  4. Click Websites in the settings window that appears.
  5. Under the JavaScript section, choose the appropriate settings for your needs. You may enable, disable, or set specific rules by clicking the  button.

To enable or disable JavaScript on an Android phone, you’ll need to enter the browser settings. Unfortunately, there are many different browsers on Android devices. The following instructions are for Google Chrome.

  1. Open the Google Chrome Internet browser.
  2. In the upper-right corner, click the  icon.
  3. On the drop-down menu that appears, tap the Settings option.
  4. Under the Advanced section, tap Site settings.
  5. Tap JavaScript.
  6. Move the slider  to toggle JavaScript on or off.

To enable or disable JavaScript on an iPhone or iPad, follow the steps below.

  1. Tap the Settings  icon on the home screen.
  2. On the Settings screen, scroll down, and tap Safari.
  3. On the Safari screen, scroll down to the bottom and tap the Advanced option.
  4. On the Advanced screen, slide the JavaScript settings to the right to enable JavaScript or slide the setting to the left to disable JavaScript.

Sometimes disabling the Javascript might not necessarily work because some sites won’t open unless you have the Javascript enabled in them, so we’ll try the next step.

2, By using a browser extension

A browser extension is a small software module for customizing a web browser. Browsers typically allow a variety of extensions, including user interface modifications, ad blocking, and cookie management. Browser plug-ins are a separate type of module.

There are many types of extensions that you can use to re-enable the right click on a website, if you are using Google Chrome to browse, just go to and search for Right To Copy and from the list of results, choose the one that best suits you.

That’s how you can be able to re-enable right-click on a website and copy content from it without any hassle. I can’t assure you that this procedure works 100% but I can give it a 70% rating. What about you, how do you rate this tutorial, let’s hear your thought via the comment box below.
