5 Ways To Set Chrome As Default Browser On Your Devices - Full Details


Chrome is easily the most used browser globally. More than 60% of the users make use of Chrome for browsing the web while Safari holds the second spot at around 15%. The huge gap speaks volumes about the dominance Chrome has over the web browser market. No wonder it is the preferred browser for most of the users. That said, we all tend to have multiple browsers on our smartphone and computer for one reason or the other. But it’s quite annoying when you click/tap on a link and it opens in a browser other than Chrome. To prevent that from happening you can make Chrome your default browser. Here, we have mentioned several methods which will help you achieve that on Android, Windows PC, and Mac.

The methods mentioned have different approaches but the end result is the same; all of them will set Chrome as your default browser so choose whichever is convenient for you. Now then, let’s kick off with the methods.

1. Make Chrome Default Browser On Android

As there are a plethora of companies manufacturing Android smartphones so the steps might vary depending on the make of your phone. But you’ll get the hang of it after following these methods.

Here I have used Samsung Galaxy S9+ running on Android Oreo 8.0.

Method 1

  • Open Settings and select Apps from the list of options.Apps Settings Android

  • Next, you’ll see the installed apps on your smartphone. Select Chrome.

  • Inside Chrome, look for Browser app option and tap on it.Make Chrome Default Browser Android

  • Finally, select Chrome from the list.

If you wish you can also set any other browser as default by selecting it in the last step above.

Method 2

  • Go to Settings > Apps.

  • Now, unlike in the method one, here you need to select the app/browser that is currently your default browser. Say, in my case it is Firefox.Clear Default Browser Android

  • In the App Settings, select Set as default option.

  • Next, tap on Clear Defaults.

  • After that, try opening a link that needs a browser outside of that particular app then it will give you the following options as shown in the screenshot below.
