Unblock Websites on Chrome

For a user’s safety, Chrome has added some algorithms, which disable access to malicious or untrusted websites. It isn’t meant to irritate a user at all, but only to facilitate him by disabling access to harmful web pages.

But some websites don’t care much about these restrictions and have added some good facilities, so many internet users are intrigued and indulged to visit them. In that case, if you are unable to visit a website that’s inaccessible in Chrome, read the following section.

How Do I Unblock Websites on Chrome?

Time needed: 5 minutes.

Not only from Chrome but the website you are trying to visit can be restricted by the system’s firewall or local network authorities. So by considering the sources of blockades, I present some methods to visit any website on Chrome.

  1. Bypass Privacy Error

    One of the most encountered restrictions provided by Chrome is for websites not using HTTPS certificates to secure their client’s browsing activity. I would personally not recommend you visit such websites, but only if you are unsure about their security level.


    So at the time you receive a privacy error on Chrome, click on the Advanced button and then click on Proceed to… That’s how you get to bypass the privacy error on Chrome.

  2. Turn off Firewall

    On some systems, the Windows Defender Firewall restricts access to malicious websites. Or, at least it considers visiting such websites harmful for the system, who automatically downloads scripts and exports them to the device’s storage.

    If you are into visiting a website that downloads scripts automatically, you need to disable Firewall (not recommended) from the Control Panel.


    a. Launch Windows Defender Firewall using the search bar.

    b. After launching the firewall’s settings, click on Turn Windows Defender Firewall On or Off, from the left pane.

    c. Disable Firewall for public and private networks – and click on the Ok button.

  3. Ensure Site Isn’t Restricted

    Some websites are restricted by the system, as they are added to the list of blocked websites. Your job is to ensure that the website you are trying to visit, isn’t enlisted in that list.


    a. Launch the Internet Options utility using the search facility.

    b. Go to the Security section.

    c. Select Restricted Sites and click on the Sites button.

    d. Select an enlisted site and click on the Remove button.

    e. Relaunch Chrome and try visiting the blocked website.

  4. Modify Host File

    In rare cases, system administrators have added websites in the host file, to make them inaccessible. To make that site accessible again, you have to modify the host file and remove the website from the script.


    a. Press the Win + E keys from your keyboard.

    b. Navigate to the following address:

    C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc

    c. Right-click on the host.txt file and select Open With >> Notepad.

    d. Look for the blocked website URL that starts with 127.0.0.1 (127.0.0.1 www.website.com).

    e. If you identify such a script, remove the line and save the changes made in the host.txt file.

  5. Use a VPN

    To bypass any sort of restriction, the usage of a VPN can be of big relief. It allows one to visit the webpages that are blocked due to geographical restrictions and remove IP blockades as well.


    But while getting a VPN, I would highly recommend that you only use a premium VPN service. So that your online privacy isn’t compromised, while you are visiting a website of your choice.
