Why is Funimation not working on Chrome?
Funimation isn’t working on Chrome because the site server is down. Or your Chrome’s cookies and cache are corrupted. Or you need to disable Chrome extensions. Otherwise, this suggests you have to switch to another browser.
Funimation not working on Chrome: 5 fixes
#1: Check the Funimation server
Before we touch your Chrome settings…
Or do some troubleshooting…
Let’s start with the easiest step.
So, if you can’t access Funimation…
Then this could mean that the Funimation server is down.
To find out, you simply have to check Funimation’s status.
In there, you’ll find a rectangular box with details about the server.
If you see a “Funimation.com is down for everyone” message in red text…
Then this means you can’t use the server yet.
Tip: It’s best to refresh the page at least once to ensure that you’re getting an updated status.

#2: Use another internet service provider
“But my connection isn’t bad!”
Yes, your internet connection is working fine.
You might need to try using another network as your ISP might have blocked Funimation.
Experts say this sometimes happens when ISPs protect their users from web traffic.
The good news is that your mobile’s internet data is there to the rescue.
By simply connecting your device to the mobile data…
You can now start watching Funimation movies.
#3: Clear your Chrome’s cookies and cache
“I thought cookies and cache were there to improve my web browser?”
But, these may also affect the performance of your browser once they get corrupted.
This results in certain issues, such as loading apps and sites.
And this might be the case on your part.
So, you need to clear them in order to give your Chrome browser a chance to breathe.
- Click the three dots on the upper right of your browser.
- Click “Settings.”
- On the left side, click “Privacy and Security.”
- Next, choose “Clear browsing data.”
Additionally, clearing cookies and cache also ensures that all personal information saved from websites is cleared and protected.
#4: Reinstall Chrome Browser
If you’ve cleared browsing data and still fail…
Then you might need to reinstall Chrome.
Note: If you’re an Android user, this step might not work on your end. Most Android devices are installed with Chrome that can’t be removed. What you can do is download the Funimation app.
Also, the app is downloadable for Windows, macOS, and iOS.
So, to start reinstalling Chrome…
Delete Chrome first from your device to uninstall.
To reinstall Chrome on Windows:
- Download the installation file.
- Select Run or Save.
- If you get the “Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device” message, click Yes.
To reinstall Chrome on Mac:
- Download the installation file.
- Click the file “googlechrome.dmg.”
- A window will open. Find Chrome or the Chrome icon.
- Drag Chrome to your Applications folder.
- Type in the admin password.
- Open Chrome.
- Open Finder.
- In the sidebar, select Eject.
Tip: If you don’t know your admin password, you may move Chrome to your desktop. Or anywhere as long as you can make edits.
#5: Don’t use Chrome extensions
While Chrome extensions help improve your browser…
They also have some downsides.
As experts say…
Like cookies and cache…
They can affect how your browser works in a not-so-good way.
As they could disrupt the videos you want to load.
So, if the website doesn’t work…
You may try disabling Chrome extensions to successfully load Funimation.
- At the upper right of your Google Chrome, click the three dots.
- Click “More tools.”
- Choose “Extensions.”
- Toggle the button (or switch).
Important: Don’t click “Remove” as this may uninstall programs you might still need.
Furthermore, if you don’t want to disable Chrome extensions…
You can use an Incognito window.
- Open Chrome.
- At the upper right of the browser, click the 3 dots.
- Select “New incognito window.”
Note: Incognito window doesn’t save your browsing activities. This means the websites you visit there will not be stored because it doesn’t have “History.”
But, if you want to save some sites…
You can simply bookmark them.
- Open Incognito Window.
- In the rightmost of the URL search bar (or address bar), find the star-shaped icon.
- Click it to bookmark a page or tab.
- Click “Done.”
You can find bookmarked pages either:
- Below the URL search bar.
- If you click the 3 dots at the upper right of the browser, you’ll see “Bookmarks.”
Note: You need to use the same browser account to see your bookmarked pages.
BONUS: Use another browser
You’ve already tried a few steps…
But nothing seems to work.
If so, then try not using Chrome.
And switch to another browser instead.
Some of the browsers you can use are:
