You might have seen this error while executing your WebDriver script on Internet Explorer browser. Here I would explain you that how to fix this issue.

wecanFix

Steps to fix this issue :

1. Go to Internet Explorer browser settings and click on Internet options.

Protected_mode_1

2. Once you click on “Internet options“, it opens up a pop up where you will see a Security tab on the top. Just click on it.

3. Under “security tab”, there is a section called Select a zone to view or change security settings with 4 options :

  • Internet
  • Local Intranet
  • Trusted Sites
  • Restricted Sites

Protected_mode_2
4. Click on First option and you will see “Enable protected mode” check box at the bottom. Just mark it as checked, if it is already checked then leave it and move to second option and again you will see the same check box at the bottom. You have to check this particular check box for all 4 options.

Protected_mode_3

5. Once you done with the above settings, now is the time to execute your WebDriver script on Internet Explorer browser and this time your script will work on IE browser.

I hope the steps provided above will help you in resolving this particular issue. Good Luck !! 🙂
