Features for protecting your website


Key features of HTML Guard

Protection features

  • Encrypt source code
    Scramble the code of your HTML files without affecting their display in the browser. Various settings let you select exactly the parts of your pages that you want to be obfuscated. For instance, you can just have the program protect your email addresses from being harvested by spammers, or apply encryption to your entire website.
  • Compress source code
    Put your pages' code on a diet and let HTML Guard remove needless space characters, line breaks, comments, and other space wasters. This speeds up downloading and makes the code less readable and harder for others to reuse.
  • Disable right mouse button
    Block the context menu in the browser, thus limiting the ability to copy or save images, text, and links via right-clicking.
  • Disable text and image selection
    Prevent your website content from being selected with the mouse and copied to the clipboard.
  • Disable Image Toolbar in Internet Explorer 6
    Hide the so-called "Image Toolbar" in Internet Explorer 6 that enables users to quickly save, print or email the image that the mouse is currently hovering over.
  • Disable browser's print functionality
    Paralyze the browser's print function so that just a blank page is produced every time a user tries to print your website.
  • Disable "Save as..." in Internet Explorer
    Force the "Save as..." function in Internet Explorer to cancel with an error message.
  • Disable link display in status bar
    Keep the browser from displaying link targets and other messages in the status bar.
  • Disable Adobe Acrobat's "Web Capture" feature
    Prevent your pages from being ripped and converted to PDF format using Adobe Acrobat.
  • Disable shortcuts
    Block common browser shortcuts that allow quick access to functions such as saving the currently displayed page or viewing its source code.
  • Restrict page use to certain web addresses
    Make your web pages viewable only under your own domain names and specify that pages may not be opened offline.
  • Disable framing of pages by other websites
    Protect your website from being trapped in some other site's frameset.
  • Keep pages from being indexed by search engines
    Instruct search engines not to index and cache your web pages. For instance, this allows you to exclude your images from the Google Image Search or ensure that your contact details are not found on the web.
