Google Chrome, by default, blocks insecure content on secure pages. Is there any way to allow it to load the full content and have it ask me (like Firefox does)? Even if it doesn't ask me and just loads it that is OK with me.
When you visit a secure page with insecure content, a shield icon will appear at the right edge of the omnibar.
Click on the shield icon, and then click Load anyway, and the insecure content will be loaded.
Works for me in chrome 30.0.1599.66– MikeNov 14, 2013 at 2:44
2@PatrickT That may have to do with the way your university has configured its servers. It is possible for a HTTPS server to specify, for instance, strict transport security, in which case insecure content would never be loaded. Nov 29, 2013 at 6:25

4This no longer works in Chrome 53. Is there a workaround?– ShaunSep 28, 2016 at 14:37
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-running-insecure-content
'/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome' --allow-running-insecure-content
Funktioniert nicht unter Version 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (x86_64) und MacOS Catalina Jan 20, 2021 at 11:33
To allow insecure content on individual sites within Chrome, click on the lock icon in the URL bar, then click 'Site settings'.
There you will see a list of various permissions the page has. Choose 'Allow' next to 'Insecure content'.
on a mac, you can create an AppleScript application in AppleScript editor with following contents:
do shell script "'/Applications/Google Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google Chrome' --allow-running-insecure-content > /dev/null 2>&1 &"
when you save it as an application, you can assign chrome icon to it :)
how does this work?– PatrickTNov 29, 2013 at 6:34
@PatrickT this launches Chrome with the command line flag to run the unsafe content. If it doesn't make sense, try a different solution since always loading unsafe content can literally be unsafe. Apr 10, 2014 at 22:23
simple and works for me! I needed this to make LiveReload work with localhost-https app Aug 7, 2014 at 21:58
2Version 47. this is not working anymore. please test and update the answer kindly. i tested myself and it failed in OSX also in Windows 8. Dec 1, 2015 at 23:40
Inspect page, and open console and type:
A simpler approach is to create a dedicated insecure instance via a shortcut with "C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --allow-running-insecure-content. This way you don't have to be annoyed on allowing all the time in your browser and can run a separate instance at the same time as a regular instance of Chrome while working within a site.

@bwDraco — And wouldn't you know, the link has gone offline! 🤷♂️ Mar 14, 2022 at 18:14
Fixed the typo.– BradApr 7, 2022 at 19:56
When you get to the blocked page you can also just type "thisisunsafe" and it will let you use the insecure page
