Manage your protected content settings

Some music or movies that you download or stream might be protected by copyright. When you go to a site with protected content, Chrome may check your device content settings before it shows protected content.

View protected content

By default, when you try to play protected media, Chrome asks you if a site can see your device identity. To view the content, let the site see your device's information by selecting Allow.

If you don’t want these sites to see your device identity, tap Block. When you try to play certain movies or music, you'll see an error or the media won't play.

Stop sites from seeing your device's information

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. To the right of the address bar, tap More More and then Settings.
  3. Tap Site settings and then Media and then Protected Content.
  4. Turn on Protected content.

Delete information that you gave to a site

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, open the Chrome app Chrome.
  2. To the right of the address bar, tap More More and then Settings.
  3. Tap Site settings and then Media and then Protected Content.
  4. At the top right, tap More More and then Reset device credentials.
