1. Copy blocked text in Google Chrome
2 . Copy restricted text in Firefox

It is normal that when we browse a web page we like the content that appears within it and we want to save it. This goes a long way with quotes from authors that we like and that we later want to share on social networks or interesting parts of books. Whatever the reason, we will see the action truncated with the text locked..

 

Many websites that we visit have their content protected (restricted) to avoid being copied and used in other texts due to copyright, this is an extra security measure to avoid piracy, but in certain cases it may be necessary to copy Some fragment of text for personal purposes, but it is not allowed to select said text, with this tutorial you will find the way to copy blocked text in both Google Chrome and Firefox .
