I just learned about this setting after finally getting frustrated of clicking “Proceed.” Geez I wish I knew about this simple setting long ago… so much time wasted! I do lots of local development and we’ve had team members include ssl certs in repositories, or type in the following command “thisisunsafe”, etc. Who knew the solution was so simple 👍

Now we can simply get around that by copying and pasting the following command into your browser


You will then be taken to Chrome’s development flags page as shown in the screenshot below. Simply enable it and restart Chrome

Now you’re all set to kick up a local dev server and never have to click proceed ever again.
