CB Protect Description

CB Protect is a software program created by Internet marketer Shawn Pringle to help people protect their downloadable products from Internet piracy. This software program was created out of the need that people have to keep others from downloading their products from the Internet and using them for free. By using CB Protect, people can cut way down on if not eliminate completely their loss of profits due to piracy.

CB Protect Detailed Overview

Probably the biggest problem that creators and marketers of downloadable products have is Internet piracy. One person shares a software program or e-book they’ve purchased with another person, and that person shares with others, and so on. Many times the software program or e-book is listed on a file-sharing site for hundreds or even thousands of people to download for free. Obviously, the creator of the software program or e-book is losing a lot of money because of this. Enter CB Protect, a software program designed specifically to deal with this problem. With his own story to tell about losing money to Internet piracy, creator Shawn Pringle tells why he finally created CB Protect and how it works to help people stop having their profits stolen.

When you use CB Protect you work with what they call the “virtual vault”. This is the core of the software program and what helps you to virtually lock your downloadable products. The premise of the virtual vault is simple. You enter the products into the software program that you want to protect and then the software takes you through a series of processes to lock these products. After they are locked they are identified with a lock icon. When people purchase your product they are given a unique access code that they must use to unlock the product before they can download it. This access code can only be used once, so if someone wanted to pass the product along by giving someone else the access code, it wouldn’t work for the next person. Voila! Your product and your livelihood are protected.

With CB Protect you can even run trial periods for your software and after the trial period is over the software will no longer work for the person who is trying it. This still gives you a way to sell your product by letting someone try it out, but without running the risk that the person will just keep using the trial version. In fact, and not surprisingly, for just a very small fraction of the actual price you can try this program out for 30 days.

CB Protect Reputation

CB Protect has received very favorable feedback from those who have purchased the program and utilized its features. People report back that it does exactly what its creator says it can do, and that they’ve seen significant increases in profit since they started using it. For those who create their own downloadable products, this program could be a beneficial addition to their marketing tools.

Very disappointed user

I acquired the product after testing and assumed it will run as promised. With few protected ebooks I had no problems, but when I increased the amount of ebooks, problems started.

Firstly, the protected ebook can only be run with admin rights! This started to cause lots of problems with increased customer help desk tickets.

Secondly, adding registered users to the system is very vulnerable to cracking, whenever you post a link to their registration site, you open the whole system for exploits. There is no good warning system, reporting is lame and the software claims "to have prevented xxx illegal attempts". No data can be seen if this is true or not.

The import of emails has a bug which breaks the whole operation if a same email is already listed on the database. Imagine trying to import 300 entries, then operation is broken and you have no idea which emails are not inside your 3000 entries.

The worst thing is the total lack of care by Shawn Pringles and help desk. I have reported the bug and several others and they are doing nothing.

Our customers have had lots of connection problems recently and help desk has been totally unwilling to help. They do not reply to direct questions and claim that system is working perfectly, even when I sent them screenshots of non-working system. Their whole email-system crashed, likely to angry customers and they don't care. Not for improvements, not for bug reports, not for cries of help!

Stay away from this system and spend your monies on something else.

Handy anti-hacker tool

It helps me and my friends a lot with protecting their downloads.

It is very handy especially when you have some valuable software on your computer like me. First I was hacked a few times and I got full of it so I got this handy tool and it helped me with it's protection for over 2 months already and I enjoy it when people try to hack me and they find out that they will fail every time they try.

It really helps and is not nonsense of any kind.

Great for people with their own software

CB Protect is a fantastic product to all those Internet Marketers out there who have built their own software and later found out that their software is uploaded free by hackers who have managed to find cracks. I myself have experienced this with my software and have lost profits to some extent as a result. CB Protect ensures your software doesn’t get hacked and as a result prevents you from losing profits. I strongly recommend people with their own software to give this product a try using the trial version and see firsthand the possible security your software can have. The admin staff are also great and have responded to my queries within 36 hours.

Good tool for protecting your software against hackers

Once software gets popular one of the first things that happens is that it attracts hackers who crack the software. I've encountered the same problem with my programs that I sell and it was frustrating to see how many sites offered a pirate version. I calculated the loss of income and I was shocked how much it was, so I decided to do something about it and look for software that prevents piracy. I didn't want to use DRM or any other kind of rootkit because there are a lot of problems with it for legit users too. After some searching I came across CB Protect. It looked good and the technique described was sound, they also update their software regularly to prevent hackers from exploiting one version.

Before I ordered it I tried the trial version to see how it affected my software and it's performance, and everything still worked well. I tried it out on different systems (windows XP, vista, 7) and it all worked without any problems. The interface to manage your software wasn't all that intuitive, I had to search a while until I found how to add new software to protect, but once I got used to it it wasn't much of a problem (though an included manual would be nice).

I had some problems with the license generator though, it kept crashing when I wanted to generate a new key for someone who purchased my software. After sending the details to the support they kindly replied that it was a bug and they sent me a new update immediately.

It's a good tool to protect software in a non invasive way and I most likely gained more money by protecting my software than it's price.
