Chrome prompting for Custom Protocol Handlers every time after update

If you are experiencing Chrome prompting for Custom Protocol Handlers every time after update, it is likely you are experiencing a bug in the Chrome browser.

In most cases, this issue is caused by a bug in the Chrome browser that causes it to prompt for Custom Protocol Handlers (CPH) every time it is updated. This bug can be resolved by disabling the CPH feature in Chrome. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open Chrome and go to the Settings tab.
2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Advanced.
3. Scroll down to the Privacy and Security section and click on Site Settings.
4. Scroll down to the Handlers section and click on Manage Handlers.
5. Uncheck the box next to “Allow sites to ask to become default handlers for protocols (recommended).”
6. Close Chrome and restart it.

The issue should be resolved after taking these steps.

In some cases, this issue may be caused by a conflict between the Chrome browser and the operating system or other installed applications. If the issue persists after disabling the CPH feature in Chrome, try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue:

1. Update your operating system and all installed applications.
2. Ensure that your antivirus and firewall programs are up to date.
3. Disable any browser extensions that could be causing the issue.
4. Reset Chrome to its default settings.
5. Uninstall and reinstall Chrome.

If none of these steps resolves the issue, it is likely that the issue is caused by a bug in the Chrome browser and the only option is to wait for the next update of Chrome to fix the issue.

In summary, if you are experiencing Chrome prompting for Custom Protocol Handlers every time after update, it is likely caused by a bug in the Chrome browser and can be resolved by disabling the CPH feature in Chrome. If the issue persists after disabling the CPH feature, try the other troubleshooting steps outlined above. If none of these steps resolves the issue, it is likely that the issue is caused by a bug in the Chrome browser and the only option is to wait for the next update of Chrome to fix the issue.
