How to protect your WordPress from plagiarism

So many hours of work, creativity and dedication for an unscrupulous plagiarist to copy your content simply with a copy and paste, because plagiarists in addition to copying you without any shame, are lazy, very lazy.

That they do not copy the contents is almost impossible, there is always some way to do it, screenshots for example, but that later entails transcribing it, but the plagiarist is lazy by nature and that takes an additional effort so they usually abandon and look for another most “careless” victim with the protection of its contents.

Today we bring you 3 plugins, from the simplest to the most advanced to help you protect your content against plagiarism.

3 Plugins to protect your WordPress from plagiarism
