How To Stop Chrome Warning : The Website Ahead Contains Malware!

How To Stop Chrome Warning

Google Chrome is one of the most popular browser in the world, and it offers various features which makes it a popular choice. One of Chrome good feature is to warn users when they attempt to visit a website which is distributing malware or even hacked. This helps normal user to secure their computer from online hacking and threats, but at the same time this feature could be very annoying for a webmaster like you and me, who is trying to clean up their blog from hacked codes.

Recently I was working on a client hacked WordPress blog which was giving malware error in popular browsers like Chrome and Firefox. I started with these 5 WordPress security plugins to check hacked WordPress blog, but every time I run scans offered by these tools, I couldn’t make them to work. Reason was, Chrome browser was blocking any activity due to its malware detecting technology, and the only way out was to disable the malware detection warning in chrome. In this quick post, I will share how you can do that, and it will be useful when you are working on cleaning a blog which has hacked or malicious codes.

Disabling Chrome – Danger: Malware ahead! messages

This feature can be disabled from accessing chrome settings. Go to Chrome settings and click on show advanced settings to show more options. Under privacy settings, you will see an option for Enable phishing and malware protection, you need to uncheck the box and that’s it. Here is a screenshot for your reference:

The Website Ahead Contains Malware!

That’s it and Chrome will stop showing you Malware ahead message, and if you are the admin, ensure that you clear your browser cache, saved website data and also your website server cache to start working on cleaning your website. This little feature is indeed very useful to safeguard our browsing behaviour, so I suggest you to turn it on after cleaning up your website.

    Hi Harsh,

    I use Sucuri for my website monitoring, like an insurance although I have never faced any malware injection issue so far on any of my websites (touch wood).

    But, I didn’t know that you run the service of cleaning of WordPress. Thanks for sharing this. I will keep this in mind and I may refer people to you when they come to me for a reference.

      Thanks for dropping by and for your comment. Sucuri is indeed one remarkable service to keep your website secure and also get notified when you are hacked. I have used it couple of time when I had to figure out which file is infected, but in this case we were able to cleanup by FTP method and with the help of few more plugins.

    If your favorite working place is stoped by bad reason,then it will happen wrong with you. I also found securi in wpbegginer blueprint. But it is not cheap for newbie.
