What is Photolock?

Since the internet came into existence, image theft has become a widespread problem. It has now become so easy to download and copy images from any website. A lot of people fail to realize that they are using someone else’s work without permission, which is copyright infringement.

With Photolock™, you can 

  • disable your visitors' ability to save images from your website without permission. 
  • communicate your copyright with warning messages
  • protect the content of your website
  • protect photos against screenshot attempts with watermark
  • prevent internet bots from scraping your images

Photolock offers powerful features you can customize and adds any level of protection to your site.

From disabling specific mouse and keyboard actions to hiding your source code, using Photolock helps to create a safer environment on your site and present your digital work without fear.


Photolock aims to prevent image theft attempts by an average user. Using Photolock as an added level of security is adequate protection for approximately 99% of site visitors. Photolock is a front-end protection suite therefore it cannot prevent site visitors from accessing the codeset of the website and assets embedded in the code due to the architecture of internet browsers. Photolock cannot provide complete protection against server-side attacks & other advanced attacks even though there are source-code protection and anti-bot measures available.
