Google Chrome not letting me trust Java applet

Posted on


I’m trying to play Minecraft in-browser with Google Chrome, but it won’t ever let me trust Minecraft’s certificate. When I try to run it, I get this popup:

Then when I click “Show Details…”:

If I tick the box that says “Always trust ‘Markus Persson'”, and change “When using this certificate: []” from “System Default,” it still doesn’t do anything. How can I run it in Chrome?


Go into System preferences -> Security and Privacy and check the box that allows applications to be downloaded from anywhere (click the lock to make changes to this).

If it doesn’t help, you can try as follows:
Make sure that you don’t any other windows apart this certificate, maybe it’s asking for you permission in the separate window.
Try as well clearing your java cache and security settings.

You may also need to reinstall the locally installed Minecraft files which you can find in your home directory.

On Windows: %AppData% (Windows+R keys, type in %AppData% at the run command and press Enter).

On Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft (your local home user directory).

There will be a minecraft directory, so try to delete everything except for the saves directory that you see therein. Then, try running Minecraft again. I’d advise you to make the backup of those files before. If you don’t have any Minecraft data stored, then remove the whole minecraft directory.


  • make sure that your system date is not in the past,
  • run your Chrome in the terminal, it could give you some more information about the problem,
  • delete your browser cache,
  • try upgrade your java to the latest version,

In Java Preferences, you may need to select “Allow user to grant permissions to signed content” on the advanced tab.
