  2. Blocking

    I am receiving emails with web links that have been deemed as unsafe/suspicious. How do I block websites? Any safety advice will be welcome and appreciated. (All advice in any category will be welcome).

    Thanks to you all~

  5. yes this is what I also found by my research, but that option seems to have gone in the latest chrome....there is no choice !!! it just says dismiss......I actually found a program ' chromedownloadunblocker' which changes the options to keep or discard, which is I think how it used to be.....Google are getting too big for their boots......

    The way to fix it is to open:

    chrome://settings/

    Click on show advanced settings at the bottom

    Under Privacy, uncheck Protect you and your devices from dangerous sites.

    Weird, what version are you running as I've always had that option since 5 years ago... I'm running the beta channel so I'm on Version 47.0.2526.35 beta-m (64-bit) and not 46.
