Have you ever wondered how to disable Right Click on images in WordPress? If you’ve ever been concerned about protecting your website’s images from being easily downloaded without your consent, you’re in the right place!

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to disable the right-click option on your images using Modula’s Protection Extension. The best part? This user-friendly method doesn’t require technical expertise or coding skills.

So, let’s dive in!

Why Disable Right-Click on Images in WordPress?

Disabling right-click on images is important because it prevents others from stealing or misusing your pictures without permission. When you turn off right-click, it’s like adding a protective shield around your images online.

Plus, there are other good reasons to do it, too. Let’s explore those together:

  • Protecting Copyright: If you’re a photographer, artist, or content creator, your creations are like your babies, right? Disabling right-click helps safeguard your copyright and ensures that others can’t misuse your work without permission.
  • Maintaining Professionalism: For businesses and professional websites, image protection is vital to maintaining that sleek and polished look. It shows that you value your content and the hard work you’ve put into making your site visually appealing.
  • Improving SEO: When people swipe your images without asking, it creates a problem – Duplicate Content. Search engines don’t like that! By stopping image theft, you’re telling search engines, “Hey, this content is unique and valuable.” This control over your content’s SEO value can boost your website’s rankings, making it easier for people to find you online.
