In order to protect your device against possible damage, Google Chrome's Safe Browsing technology automatically blocks downloads of malicious software, from unwanted or unsafe sites. However, if you are sure that the program you want to download is not a threat to your device, you can modify the browser settings in order to download.
How To Download a Program Blocked by Google Chrome
Open the Google Chrome
menu in the upper right corner and select Settings
. Next, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Advanced Settings
. In the Privacy
section, uncheck the Get protection for yourself and your device against dangerous websites
option. Download the program again and the browser will show you a warning, but you will be allowed to download it.
