Google Chrome has several security features to keep you safe while browsing the web, but sometimes it can be frustrating when it blocks downloads that you know are safe. Luckily, there are workarounds to allow multiple downloads in Chrome.

Before we dive in, it’s important to note that Chrome blocks downloads that it deems potentially unsafe. However, if you trust the site where your file is hosted, or if you know what you’re doing, you can make exceptions for certain downloads.

If you receive a prompt that your download has been blocked, click on “Keep” to make a one-time exception. But if you want to turn off blocking completely, you’ll need to dig into your settings.

To do this, open Chrome and click on the triple dotted icon in the top right corner, then select “Settings” to open your browser settings in another tab. From there, click on “Privacy and Security” in the menu on the right, then click on the “Security” tab. Set “Safe Browsing” to “No Protection” to restrict the feature to Google apps and services.

Once you’ve made this change, go back to the page you want to download from and try your download again. Your files should now download without any issue. For additional security, you might want to set your safe browsing back to standard once your download is complete.

If you’re having trouble downloading multiple files, you’ll need to edit your automatic download settings. With your browser settings menu open, click on “Privacy and Security” in the menu on the right, then click on “Site Settings” under the “Permissions” section. Click on “Additional Permissions” and select “Automatic Downloads.”

Here, check that sites can ask to automatically download multiple files and select it under the default behavior. Once that’s been set, feel free to try your download again.

In conclusion, Google Chrome’s security features are there to keep you safe, but they can sometimes get in the way. By making a few simple changes in your settings, you can allow multiple downloads in Chrome without compromising your safety.
