Due to a protection mechanism by your browser, it can happen that your imports suddenly stops.
This mechanism is originally intended to warn you from visiting phishing websites.
When our background process requests such a url, it blocks our code from being executed and also blocks all further requests.
With a few clicks you can (temporarily) disable this measure and your imports will run through. .
NO WORRIES THOUGH. When the import process visits those websites, no viruses can be downloaded.
By re-enabling the protection afterwards you are safe visiting those sites because it will show you the familiar warning again.
How to disable your browser's Phishing Protection:
- Go to Chrome's settings
- Scroll to the bottom and click on Advance
- Disable this setting
- Done. Nothing can happen here.
- Re-enable the settings after the download is finished (we will remind you just in case)
In case you got stuck and didn't disable those setting before:
- Go to chrome://extensions
- Reload Memex
Either through the icon or by disabling the extension and re-enabling it
- Follow Steps above on how to disable the Phishing Protection settings.
We know its not the most elegant solution, but the best we can offer right now without infringing your privacy.
(The other option is to send each of your urls to google before downloading in order to check if they are malicious)
If you would not mind doing that, let us know and we can put this feature on our map for integration.
