Chrome is one of the most popular web browsers on the market and it’s also available across platforms. It’s fast, free, and user-friendly. But some things are a bit more challenging to figure out. 

One of Chrome’s many features is a built-in pop-up blocker. But that doesn’t exactly help when you’re performing a task that requires pop-ups. Luckily, that can be fixed. So, how do you allow pop-ups? 

How to Allow Pop-Ups In Chrome in 4 Fast Steps

Well, it’s relatively simple. Below you’ll find a step-by-step guide for how to allow pop-ups In Chrome

How to Allow Pop-Ups In Chrome 

Chrome pop-ups have several benefits to make your browsing a more satisfying experience. Here’s how you set it up.

Step 1: Download The Browser

 You can use this link to download Chrome onto your desktop or smartphone. After you’ve installed the app, an icon should appear on your main screen. Now, you’re just a few clicks away from a resolution. You’ll want to follow the instructions below to allow pop-ups.

Step 2: Open Chrome 

You’ll have to launch your browser by clicking the tile (iPhone and Android users) or the icon (Mac and PC) on your main screen. The browser should launch after that. 

Step 3: More is Helpful

To the right of the address bar, you should see three bullet points. You’ll want to click on them to open the options menu. Then, you’ll scroll down to settings and select that option. Select Privacy and Security. You’ll find site settings close to the top of the list.  

Step 4: Enable Pop-Ups 

After opening site settings, you should see a tab for Pop-ups and redirects. For mobile users, this step is as simple as sliding a toggle bar. After you’ve enabled pop-ups, you can always go back to site settings to disable them. 

Popping up like daisies

As you can see, enabling pop-ups is a simple process. It can be helpful if you’re filling out applications or if you happen to use Chrome to sign in to your accounts automatically. Also, one feature that we haven’t discussed is the Google search engine. Have a question? Just type it into the search bar, and boom! Google has an answer. 

Not only this, but the search results are consistently updated, so if you don’t find what you’re looking for, all you have to do is refine your search. Don’t believe us? Try it out for yourself.
