Topic: MT4 EA download being blocked by Chrome

Not sure if this is a local issue or more widespread. Earlier this week I was able to download MT4 EAs, however when I try today, Chrome blocks the download saying it may be dangerous.

Clearly it's not, but I can't find a way around this. Is anyone having similar issues?

Re: MT4 EA download being blocked by Chrome

Once you confirm you clearly want the file, Chrome doesn't bother you again.

Re: MT4 EA download being blocked by Chrome

I don't get that option - there's just a "Discard" option. there's also no way to turn off "Safe Browsing" any longer on the newest version of Chrome.

Understandable that these things are normally useful, but you should be given the option to override if you know the file is safe. Crazy.

Re: MT4 EA download being blocked by Chrome

It normally shows once a warning for downloading multiple files. Something like that:

I don't experience that issue. We must find a solution anyway.

I have:

Google Chrome is up to date
Version 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Oh no it's not for the portfolio - it's just a single EA for a single pair.

My Chrome is:

Google Chrome is up to date
Version 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) (64-bit)

Re: MT4 EA download being blocked by Chrome

The arrow next to Discard simply says "Learn More" and takes you to a general page detailing why Chrome blocks some files and giving no option to override.

Try the new Edge browser: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge

It is as fast as Chrome because it uses the same JavaScript engine.

Re: MT4 EA download being blocked by Chrome

I found this tutorial of how to disable the Safe browsing: https://www.guidingtech.com/unblock-downloads-chrome/


From Settings -> Privacy and Security -> Security | Safe Browsing
