Previously, on Techviral, we shared lots of articles covering tutorials to fix different types of web browser errors. While web browsing, users can come across different type of errors like ‘err_cert_authority_invalid’, “‘err_file_not_found’, etc. These errors usually occur on the Chrome browser and can ruin your web browsing experience.
We are talking about Chrome errors because we recently received multiple messages from visitors regarding the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message. Users get the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message while visiting their favorite websites.
So, if you also get the same error message while visiting any website, then you are not alone. The error occurs when users are redirected to the new URL but fall into an infinite redirect loop.
In simple words, the reason why you are stuck in this redirect loop can be the problem of the server side or the end user. Webmasters usually deal with the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message while installing SSL Certificates. However, in some cases, it’s seen that users got the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message even when the issue had been fixed from the server side.
Ways To Fix ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ Chrome Error Message
This happens due to the aggressive caching process of the Chrome web browser, which loads the old content again and again. So, if you are getting the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ you can follow some of the simple methods below.
1. Check With Other Browsers
If you get the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message on the Chrome browser, open the same URL using other browsers.
If the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error also occurs in other browsers, then the problem might be from the server side. In that case, you must wait for a few minutes or hours until webmasters fix the issue.
2. Clear Your Browser Data
If the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ occurs only on the Google Chrome browser, you must clear the browsing data.
Browsing data like browsing cache, cookies, history, etc., can contain faulty files, which lead to such error messages. So, clear the browser data and check whether you still get the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message or not.
To clear chrome data, type in ‘chrome://settings’ in the address bar and press Enter. Now click on ‘Show Advanced Settings’ and then click on ‘Clear Browsing Data.’
3. Check The Extensions
Malicious browser extensions often redirect users to web pages full of ads and malicious content. So, if you get the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ after installing a new browser extension, you need to remove it immediately.
Just open a new tab, and on the address bar, enter ‘chrome://extensions’. It will open the Extension manager where you can enable or disable extensions.
4. Check the System Time and Date
Web browser errors like ‘err_cert_authority_invalid’, ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’, etc also occurs due to incorrect date & time settings. Wrong date and time settings create incompatibility issues between the System clock and SSL Validation, which triggers different types of error messages.
So, check the date and time settings before blaming the web browser. Right-click on the Taskbar and select ‘Adjust Date & Time’. From there, make the appropriate changes and restart the computer.
So, these are the four best methods to fix the ‘ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS’ error message from the Chrome browser. If you know of other methods to fix the error, let us know in the comment box below.
