(Solved) – How to enable the Safe Browsing Option? Selenium with VBA

  • by

I essentially need to translate this (#1) Python solution or this (#2) Python solution into VBA, (Python code also shown below). It’s the same as asking how one might start a VBA Selenium driver with ‘safebrowsing’ enabled.

Python Solution #1

prefs = {
    'safebrowsing' => {
        'enabled' => true,

b = Watir::Browser.new :chrome, :prefs => prefs, :switches => %w[--safebrowsing-disable-download-protection]))

Python Solution #2:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.chrome.options import Options

chrome_options = Options()
chrome_options.add_experimental_option("prefs", {
  "download.default_directory": r"C:Usersdownloads",
  "download.prompt_for_download": False,
  "download.directory_upgrade": True,
  "safebrowsing.enabled": False

driver = webdriver.Chrome(chrome_options=chrome_options)

Any ideas how VBA’s version of this might appear? Thanks for taking the time to read, much appreciated.
