    Was poking through my CPanel and noticed Hotlinking Protection. What is this and how does it work?

    I am interested in attempting to protect the images on my site and wanted to know if this could be used for that purpose?


    Thanks,

    ENE

    It prevents what is described here:

    It will not prevent somebody from downloading an image directly from you site. Actually, nothing will prevent that. If the image is displayed, I can always hit the print screen button and past your image into an image editing program.
