Google Chrome comes with various security features that allow users to have a safe browsing experience. However, sometimes these protection features stop you from visiting sites or downloading data. If such a thing happens, you can turn off the safety features. This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable Safe Browsing in Google Chrome on Windows 11/10.
Enable/Disable Safe Browsing Google Chrome
To enable or disable this feature, you have to visit the registry editor in Windows.

Step-2: Type regedit in the Run box and press Enter.
Step-3: You will be asked, do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device? Click Yes.
Step-4: Type the following path in the address box at the top of the editor window and press Enter:
Step-5: Right-click in the left pane, hover the cursor over New, and select Key. Name this newly created Key as Google.
Step-6: Now, right-click on this newly created Google key, hover the cursor over New, and select Key. Rename this new Key as Chrome.
Step-7: Right-click in the right pane, hover the cursor on New, select DWORD (32-bit) Value. Rename this as SafeBrowsingProtectionLevel.
Step-8: Double-click on this newly created DWORD.
Step-9: In Value Data, add any of the following values depending on what you need. Since you want to disable the safe browsing feature, add 0 and press OK.
0 is for No Protection
1 is for Standard Protection
2 is for Enhanced Protection
Step-10: After you are done, close the Registry Editor and restart your system.
