Google Chrome automatically blocks suspicious file downloads. However, if you believe your file is completely safe, you can download it by temporarily allowing all downloads. Here’s how to do it on desktop, Android, iPhone, and iPad.

Unblock File Downloads in Chrome on Desktop

If you’re downloading a file from a non-fraudulent site and you know it’s safe, here’s how to turn off Chrome’s security option to allow all types of file downloads.

Start by launching Chrome on your computer. In the upper right corner of the browser, click on the three dots.

Select the three dots in the upper right corner.

In the three-dot menu, click on “Settings”.

Choose “Settings” from the menu.

On the “Settings” page, in the left sidebar, click on “Security and privacy”.

Select “Security & Privacy” from the left sidebar.

In the “Security & Privacy” section on the right, click “Security” to access Chrome’s security settings.

Click “Security” on the right.

On the “Security” page, in the “Safe Browsing” section, select the “No protection” option. This disables your browser’s security features.
