After updating Chrome browser to latest version if you’re seeing an Aw, Snap! page with error code “STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH” while opening website? You’re not alone!
In our previous blog post, we shared about Chrome STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION error, and now users reporting about another issue on Google forum (for example) where when users are trying to open websites, they’re seeing Aw, Snap page having error code: STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH in Chrome v81.0.4044.92. Again, there’s not actually information about what causing the issue.
Fix – Google Chrome STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH Error Code
As of writing this blog post, there’s no official solution or update with fix rolled out by the Google. In the meantime, to fix this issue, we came up with a quick workaround which you can use. Here’s what you need to do:

After doing this, you will no longer see Aw, Snap! page with error code: STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_HASH
