Protect: partial content blocking
Sometimes dangerous elements from infected resources (banners, scripts, or sidebars) or mining scripts can show up on otherwise safe sites. Yandex Browser beta version blocks such elements as part of the integrated security system. The data on unsafe resources is taken from a special database compiled by Yandex and our partners.
Blocking dangerous elements
If the page you want to visit contains elements from infected sites, Yandex Browser blocks them.
If you want to load blocked content:
- Click .
- In the Ad and tracker blocking section, click Settings.
- In the Block ads on this site section, select Unblock for tab.
If blocked content is a serious threat to your computer, you will not be able to load it. In this case, there will be no Unblock for tab link in the Block ads on this site section.
Because Yandex Browser only downloads secure elements, the page may be formatted incorrectly.
To disable dangerous content blocking:
- Click .
- Go to the Protect tab at the top of the page.
- In the Threat security section, deselect the Run security checks on websites and downloaded files option.
Use the same algorithm to enable the blocking of dangerous content.
Blocking mining scripts
Mining is often used for issuing cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. The computer makes calculations and its owner is awarded a certain amount of cryptocurrency.
To prevent miners from earning money using your computer's resources, Yandex Browser blocks mining scripts from sites. Scripts can be blocked even if they're unknown to Yandex Browser. The browser analyzes the CPU load generated by sites and uses this data to block previously unknown mining scripts.
If you want to stop blocking mining scripts, disable ad filters in the browser.
