“This webpage has a redirect loop” solution from client side
This method is for a normal Internet or Chrome user who are receiving the above error message. Let me explain How I write a tutorial on this issue.
Like our previous tutorials on android error messages, this error is not reported by any of our readers, but its my own personal experience. I love to explore the tactics that I tried to resolve any error messages. Last day I go to www.youtube.com for uploading a Video tutorial regarding “recording of skype calls on android“. Unfortunately I received error message “This website has a redirect loop”. I went excited by thinking How things like this happen for a Google owned website like YouTube? I tried reloading for half an hour but nothing changed. There were no problem for other websites like Google or Facebook. I tried Torch browser for Youtube.com and there were no problem at all. Then I conclude that the problem was with my Chrome browser and not with the YouTube Server.
Here What I tried:-
I don’t assure that this method will works for you. But performing the below steps solved my issue with YouTube and you can also try this.
I just Delete the cache of Chrome browser. For that
- Go to Settings
- Choose Show Advanced Settings
- Under Privacy choose Clear Browsing data
- Now clear the whole Browsing data and Restart your Browser.
- You can press Ctrl+Shift+Delete for directly deleting the cache.
The above method worked fine in my case and I am asking you to try this as the above method doesn’t makes any problems.
What else you can try:-
There may some extensions that make continues redirection on your browser. Sorry I don’t have any personal experience on this. So check out what kind of plugins were you installed and check whether they are trust worthy. Try disabling those plugins and then reload the webpage.
Another way is by Swapping the browser. This issue are probably getting only in chrome browser. So you can try accessing the webpage via Mozilla, IE, Opera or Torch Browser.
