Our Content Locking Technology is Now AdLock!

What is AdLock?

Simply put, AdLock® is a powerful suite of content locking tools that will help you generate more revenue from your visitors and users. Our flagship solution, AdLock tools are customizable, adaptable to almost anything digital, and can display offers to your users or visitors based on their current location! Our current suite of AdLock tools includes:

AdLock® Widget: Previously known as our Content Gateway or Content Locker, the AdLock Widget is a flexible solution that allows you to monetize web content by locking user access to your premium content. The AdLock Widget is extremely easy to use, as it comes with a set-up wizard to help you customize your widget and guide you through the widget creation process. Once you have created your widget, all you have to do is place a simple snippet of code on your site and you are done! To learn more about the AdLock Widget, visit:

AdLock® Link: Previously known as our File/Link Gateway or Hosted Content Locker, the AdLock Link allows you to monetize files, links, passwords, and more by locking user access to your premium content. Don’t have a website? No problem! AdLock Links are hosted by us. Additionally, all AdLock Links can be appended with descriptive text or keyword data to help increase conversions!

With the release of AdLock, we have also upgraded the AdLock® Link! Besides being an easy to use lead generation tool, the AdLock Link has been given a sleeker design to help increase conversions and is now fully responsive! This also means that the AdLock Link is now mobile phone and tablet friendly! To check out the new AdLock Link design, visit: and click on “View Demo.”

AdLock® API: Got apps or games? Then you will love the AdLock API! Formerly known as our API, the AdLock API allows you to monetize virtual goods such as in-game items/currency, in-app features, account upgrades, and memberships.

Besides providing the ability to monetize virtual goods, the AdLock API allows you to take full control of the look and feel of our AdLock technology. Your monetization options are limited only to the imagination with the API, as you can monetize virtually anything digital with this technology. One use that many of our publishers have for the API is to use it as an offer feed for a points/rewards site. For more information on the AdLock API, go to:
