Whenever you try to access a website and are met with an error message like ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS, it means that the site you’re trying to access is sending you on an endless chain of redirections. In most cases, this error is caused by the site’s server, not the user.
Occasionally, though, the error can be caused by cached data from DNS or by cookies that have accumulated since a server’s last configuration modification. Clearing cookies, testing in masked mode, and other measures will help us confirm that the issue is not on your end.
ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS in Chrome
If the website still doesn’t load up after any of these checks, please contact us. It’s not on your end that’s causing the ERR TOO MANY REDIRECTS problem. Your computer is fine, and the problem is on the server’s end. If no action is performed on the server side, this issue will go away.
1. Use Different Browsers
Your browser can be identified as the source of the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS issue. We can verify this by launching multiple instances of the website. Try visiting to the same website on multiple devices/browsers.
Please delete your browser’s cache and cookies if it doesn’t open on your machine after starting there. In this case, the server may be responsible for the problem if it occurs on that device or browser as well. If you’re an end-user, there is little you can do until the issue is resolved on the vendor’s end.
2. Clearing Browser Data
We can try cleaning your browser data to see if it solves the issue (with the website not starting on other devices). Fault files in your browser could be the source of the issue. Everything is reset and the browser works as if you’re seeing the website for the first time when we delete the browser data.
Clearing the browsing history in Google Chrome is as simple as following the steps we’ve provided. It’s possible that other browsers’ data-clearing mechanisms differ significantly.
Step 1: In Google Chrome, open the address bar and type “chrome:/settings” followed by pressing Enter. To access the browser’s settings, click on the gear icon.
Step 2: On the second page, click on “Advance” at the bottom of the page. Finally, click on “Clear browsing data” in the Privacy and Security section of the Advanced Menu.
Step 3: A new menu will appear, confirming the deletion of the items you selected and the date on which you made the selection.
Step 4: Then Attempt to access the website again by relaunching your browser after shutting off all other applications.
3. Check Browser Extensions
Please let us know if deleting your browsing history doesn’t resolve the issue. Disable any extensions that you believe may be causing problems. Before proceeding to the following advice, you should still disable all browser extensions to establish if the issue is with your browser or the server.
In Chrome, type “chrome:/extensions” in the address box and press Enter to view your installed browser extensions. By unchecking the “enable” box, you can disable any extension you want to remove from your browser.
It will prevent any changes to your UI from affecting the spreads you have installed. It’s worth a try to restart your browser.
4. Verify the Time and Date
Finally, we can verify that your computer’s date and time settings are correct. This issue can arise if the server-side time does not match the client-side time. Set the date and time correctly by following the steps outlined below.
Step 1: To get started, hit Windows + S to open the search bar and type in a keyword. Open the “settings” dialogue box by typing “settings” in the search box.
Step 2: Set the date and time correctly in Step 2. If you don’t want the time and time zone to be set automatically, uncheck the “automatically set time and time zone” options.
Step 3: “Change” the date and time under Change date and time by clicking on “Change.” Choose the proper time zone and adjust your watch appropriately. Disable the “Auto-sync time” feature, too.
If none of the steps outlined above work, then the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTSissue is most likely server-side, and you have no control over it as an end user. When none of the above mentioned tactics work, you are left with little choice but to give up.
You should, however, contact technical assistance if you believe that the issue is isolated to your PC and that others are able to access the address just fine.
