Allow Chrome to load insecure content

Allow Chrome to load insecure content

To allow Chrome to load insecure content all the time could be very dangerous, however you can accomplish this two ways.

First you could just of course click on the shield and then tell it to allow but this is time consuming especially if debugging a site.

I think a better approach is to simply create a shortcut that is dedicated to opening the Chrome browser just for using a dedicated instanceĀ to always load insecure content.

You can do this in Windows by right clicking on your desktop and then select “create shortcut” from the right click context menu. Next for the path of the program paste in the link below then name your shortcut: (NOTE: This is the default file path for the 32-Bit version, you will need to change this if you are running theĀ 64-Bit version.)

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-running-insecure-content

Now if you right click and select properties of your newly created shortcut it should look like the image below.
