How do I disable Cors in Chrome?

Answered by Edward Huber

To disable CORS (Cross-Origin Resource Sharing) in Chrome, you can follow these steps:

1. Right-click on your desktop and select “New” and then “Shortcut”. This will create a new shortcut on your desktop.

2. In the “Create Shortcut” window, you need to specify the target for this shortcut. The target is the path to your Chrome browser executable file. It might be something like “C:\Program Files\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe”. Make sure to replace “[PATH_TO_CHROME]” with the actual path to your Chrome browser.

3. After specifying the target, you need to add some additional command line flags to disable CORS. Append the following flags to the target:
–disable-web-security –disable-gpu –user-data-dir=~/chromeTemp

Here is an explanation of each flag:
– “–disable-web-security”: This flag disables the web security features in Chrome, including CORS. It allows cross-origin requests to be made without any restrictions.
– “–disable-gpu”: This flag disables the use of the GPU in Chrome. It can help avoid certain issues related to CORS.
– “–user-data-dir=~/chromeTemp”: This flag sets a custom user data directory for Chrome. It ensures that any temporary data generated by Chrome, such as cookies or cache, is stored in a separate directory. This can prevent conflicts with your regular Chrome profile.

4. Once you have added the flags to the target, click “Next” in the “Create Shortcut” window.

5. In the next window, you can provide a name for the shortcut, such as “Chrome (No CORS)”. Then click “Finish” to create the shortcut.

6. Now, you can double-click on the shortcut you created to open Chrome without CORS restrictions. Keep in mind that this shortcut will open a new instance of Chrome with the specified flags, separate from your regular browsing session.

Please note that disabling CORS can have security implications, as it allows cross-origin requests without any restrictions. It is recommended to only disable CORS when necessary for testing or development purposes. When browsing the web or accessing sensitive information, it is essential to have CORS enabled for proper security measures.
