Have you ever tried copy a certain text or a word from a site but were unable to do so because the site administrator had disabled the copy paste functionality?

Well this is basically done in order to stop plagiarism. Disabling the copy paste functionality on a site does prevent people or bots from copying information without permission. However it is not so effective nowadays as the Copy protection feature is usually done with the help of JavaScript. So if you turn off JavaScript in any web browser, you will be able to copy information from the site without any restrictions. But even then there are many websites where disabling JavaScript won’t work.

There are also many third party extensions available on the Google play store that can help you to disable the copy protection feature on any site. But the one that’s the most popular is Allow Copy.

1st Way:

Allow Copy will re-enable select, copy, paste and right click features at any webpage using any kind of copy protection.

Using the extension is very simple and here’s how you can use the Allow Copy extension to disable copy protection on any site and copy any information on it using Google Chrome.
How to Copy Text from Copy Protected Sites using Allow Copy Extension in Google Chrome.

Step 1: Head over to the Download link provided at the bottom of the page.
Step 2: Click on Add to chrome to install the extension in Google chrome. Once installed the extension will appear in Chrome’s extension bar as shown in the screenshot below.
Step 3: Now whenever you come across a site that has copy protection enabled, you can simply click on the Allow copy extension’s icon and the copy pastefeature will be instantly enabled on that site.

The extensions icon should display a green tick whenever the copy paste feature is enabled.

It’s as simple as that and now you can go ahead and copy any information that you need.

I have created this guide in order to help people such as students and everyone else who intend to sue this for a legal purpose. I have made all the information on my site free for everyone and I never intend to use copy protection on my blog. So please think twice before using this extension to do something illegal.

3rd Way:

       Disabling JavaScript in Browsers [Google Chrome]

In Chrome browser, you can quickly disable JavaScript by going to settings. See the          screenshot for better explanation:

chrome disable javascripts
  • Goto Setting >> UnderHood Tab >> Content Settings
  • or enter  chrome://settings/content
  • Then Select Do not allow any site to run JavaScript
       Similarly if you are using Firefox, you can remove the tick from “Enable JavaScript” option.

4th Way:

       Using Proxy Sites
     There are many proxy sites, which let you disable JS while browsing. All you need to use              those proxy sites, which offer such features and you can quickly use right-click on click                   disabled sites.

5th Way:

         Through Viewing Source Code
       If you have to copy the specific text content and you can take care of HTML tags, you can             use browser view source options. All the major browser give an option to source of the                 page,    which you can access directly using the format below or by right click. Since, right            click is out of question here, we will simply open chrome browser and type: 
         view-source: before the post URl Like
  • view-source:http://www.techenlite.blogspot.com
     And find the paragraph or text you want to copy and then paste it into any text editor.
     Well, using this trick ethically or unethically is in user hand but for a normal blogger            like me and you, this tip will certainly help. Do you use any other plugin or add-                   on to copy content of pages with right click disabled? Do you also see this feature as bad user experience?  


It’s best practice to always acknowledge the source once you copy any information from a website, that way you won’t be stealing.
