Google Chrome added a security

We have noticed that with a Google Chrome update that some pdf's in CC will not be allowed to open. Google is seeing them as unsafe downloads. We found a workaround here but to have our complete data base do this is impossible. We also see that CC changes the link on there end to a not secure area and wondering if that is why google is rejecting. Thoughts on this?

Original link:

CC link:

To fix:

  1. Paste this command in the browser URL bar:
  2. 1 chrome://flags/#treat-unsafe-downloads-as-active-content



  1. Set the flag to Disabled. Chrome will save the setting automatically.
  2. Restart the browser and attempt the download again.

Hello @ShelliB4 ,


Does this issue seem to be occurring with links in your Legacy Emails, Legacy Survey emails, or Event emails? Those editors use an older system, which is why their tracking links would be including HTTP instead of the standard HTTPS. 


If this is occurring in your regular Email campaigns, please respond to the @ mention email with some examples, and we can troubleshoot further.
