Foxit Reader and Safe reading mode.
Safe Reading mode in Foxit is on default. This is a setting that you can disable in the preferences.
Let’s fix “Foxit reader does not allow connection to ‘?”.
In the tutorial below, I explain how you can disable this.
There are 2 different options:
One is for techies
Two is for the dummies with screenshots.
Let’s Disable Safe Reading mode in Foxit Reader for techies.
- If you haven’t started Foxit Reader yet, please Start Foxit Reader.
- Go to File in the upper-left corner.
- Click on Preferences in the menu.
- Scroll to Trusted Manager.
- You’ll see a Box called Trusted manager.
- Remove the check from Enable Safe Reading.
Do not forget that you can now click on malicious links that contain malware. I recommend to keep the option on or temporarily turn off when you know that the links do not contain malware.
Let’s Disable Safe Reading mode in Foxit Reader for the dummies among us.
As said before. The tutorial for dummies contains screenshots to guide you better.
Start Foxit Reader and open File in the top left corner.
And click on Preferences in the left menu.
Scroll to Trusted Manager in the left menu. Here is another tab with Trusted Manager. Remove the check mark for Enable Safe Reading mode.
Now that we have disabled Safe Reading Mode you have to take into account that when you click on a malicious link you can get malware. It’s recommended to keep Safe Reading Mode on in Foxit Reader.
