Protect: blocking downloads of unsafe content on HTTPS pages

The HTTPS protocol supports data encryption and is considered to be secure for transferring confidential information. Connections over HTTPS are only safe, however, if all page elements are encrypted. Sometimes website pages are loaded over HTTPS, but they contain unencrypted elements: plug-ins, JavaScript scripts, CSS style sheets, etc. Hackers can intercept and use these to crack the site. Therefore, Yandex.Browser enables protection from unencrypted elements within the Protect integrated security system.

Attention. We do not recommend downloading unencrypted elements if you are going to enter personal data or make online payments through this website.
If a page uses HTTPS but includes unencrypted elements, then it will be blocked and the icon will appear on the right side of the SmartBox.

If you want to load blocked content:

  1. Tap the  icon.
  2. Find the Some content was blocked message and click the More info link.
  3. Under the Blocked tab, click the Unblock link.
