Configure Chrome To Allow Windows Authentication Without Prompting

Chrome configuration for Windows Authentication
Article # 3034966 - Page views: 30270

Issue

Windows Integrated Authentication allows a user's Active Directory credentials to pass through their browser to a web server.

Windows Integrated Authentication is enabled by default for Internet Explorer but not Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Users who use the non-Microsoft browsers will receive a pop-up box to enter their Active Directory credentials before continuing to the website.

This adds additional steps and complexity for users who are using web based applications.

Solution

To resolve the issue in Chrome, add your site into the Trusted Sites zone in Internet Properties and set "Automatic logon with current user name and password" in Local Intranet and Trusted Sites zones.

Here are the steps to configure Chrome:

  1. Browse to chrome://settings or Open the 'Customize' menu (upper right corner) in Chrome and select Settings.

  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on 'Advanced' to show more settings.

  3. In the 'System' section, click on 'Open proxy settings.'

  4. Click the 'Security tab > Trusted Sites icon', then click the 'Sites' button and enter the URL of your Trusted Site, then click Add. This should be your TotalAgility site URL. 

  5. Click 'Close' to close the Trusted Sites window.

  6. Click on 'Security tab > Local intranet' then the 'Custom level...' button.

  7. Scroll to the bottom and select the 'Automatic logon with current user name and password' option. It's under the 'Authentication > Logon' section.

  8. Click OK to save the changes. 

  9. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for the 'Trusted Sites' zone also.

  10. Click OK to save all the changes and close the Properties window.
