How do I enable .mil sites in Chrome?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To enable .mil sites in Chrome, you can adjust your site settings to allow access to these specific websites. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Open Google Chrome on your computer.
2. Click on the “More” button located at the top right corner of the browser window. It looks like three vertical dots stacked on top of each other.
3. In the dropdown menu, select “Settings.” This will open a new tab with various settings options.
4. Scroll down the page and click on “Privacy and security.”
5. Under the “Privacy and security” section, click on “Site Settings.” This will open a new page with additional site-related options.
6. Look for the “Permissions” section and click on “Additional permissions.”
7. From the list of additional permissions, click on “Pop-ups and redirects.”
8. On the next screen, you will see a toggle switch to allow or block pop-ups and redirects. Make sure it is enabled (blue color) to allow these actions.
9. Now, go back to the “Site Settings” page and look for the “Permissions” section again.
10. This time, click on “Insecure content.”
11. On the “Insecure content” page, you will find a toggle switch to allow or block insecure content. Enable it to allow insecure content to load on the pages you visit.
12. go back to the “Site Settings” page and locate the “Permissions” section once more.
13. Click on “Cookies and site data.”
14. Here, you can adjust how Chrome handles cookies and site data. To ensure .mil sites are allowed, make sure the “Block third-party cookies” option is disabled (grayed out).
15. You can also manage exceptions by clicking on the “Add” button under the “Sites that can always use cookies” section. Enter the URL of the .mil site you want to enable and select “Allow” from the dropdown menu.
16. Once you have made these changes, close the settings tab, and Chrome will remember your preferences for .mil sites.

Please note that enabling these settings may have security implications, as it allows pop-ups, redirects, and insecure content to load. Use caution and ensure you trust the .mil sites you are accessing.
