I've set up a website with basic HTTP authentication. If I go there with IE 11 or Firefox 38, I get the expected dialog asking for credentials. If I attempt to go there with Chrome 45, it immediately gives me an "Authorization Required" error page and never asks me for credentials. This happens even after I restart the browser or the whole computer.
I've done the following things:
- Set all of my security zones in my IE/Windows Internet Options to prompt for username and password, as I understand that Chrome for Windows uses those settings.
- Tried making sure popups are enabled for the host I'm going to.
- Checked to see if maybe incorrect credentials were saved (there are no saved passwords for the host I'm going to).
- Dug through the Settings page for Chrome itself and found nothing else useful.
- Going to the desired address and putting the credentials into the URL (
No dice yet, I'm about to pull my hair out.
I'd like to note here that, for one, I cannot give the URLs I'm trying to access, as they are not public. Two, there are some domain-based policies put into place and I can't change some settings in Chrome (this is a corporate machine). I'm wondering if there's something I've missed that could, at the very least, explain why it's doing this?
