  1. Open Google Chrome, then click on the More icon (displayed by three dots arranged vertically) and hover over More tools. Here, click on Extensions. Alternatively, you can enter chrome://extensions/ into your browser and hit the enter key.

Method 4. Try Incognito mode

When using the Incognito Mode built into Google Chrome, you browse without cache, cookies, or browser history being stored. This may help you avoid getting the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error message when visiting various websites.

Here are the steps to take in order to browse in Incognito Mode.

  1. Open Google Chrome, then click on the More icon (displayed by three dots arranged vertically).
  2. Click on the New Incognito Window option from the context menu. A new window will appear letting you know that you’re browsing incognito.

  1. Open Google Chrome, then click on the More icon (displayed by three dots arranged vertically) and choose Settings.

  5. After the process is over, restart Google Chrome and see if the ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS error is still appearing when you use the browser.

Method 6. Owners: Check the .htaccess file

Website owners should test if the problem comes from the .htaccess file. You can do this by locating the file, then deleting it and reloading the website. Make sure to create a backup of the file in case you need to restore it in the future.

If the redirect loop is gone after .htaccess is deleted, it was the culprit. Some additional things that may cause a redirect loop include new scripts, add-ons or plugins. Try disabling anything you recently added to the website to see if the error disappears.
