How to stop Chrome from blocking downloads

Google chrome is with no doubt my favorite browser.  This is not only for its speed but its simplicity.

However when I am downloading files, Chrome blocks them and displays the message “File Is Dangerous So Chrome Has Blocked It

Google chrome will automatically determine harmful file extensions and block them accordingly. At first instance, this looks great. With this option, you can somewhat substitute a basic antivirus.

However, some other times this can be a nuisance if you really want that file regardless of what Chrome ‘thinks’ about it.

If you want to stop Chrome from blocking downloads, follow the steps below

  • On the top-right corner of the browser window, click the Chrome menu Chrome menu.


  • Select Settings.



  • Click Show advanced settings.
  • Under “Privacy and Security” select security



  • Under Safe Browsing, select No protection (not recommended)


That’s all
