Disabling malware protection

Malware protection that blocks infected sites and pages is enabled in Yandex Browser. You can disable this protection:

Other computer users or malicious extensions can also disable your protection without notifying you. If protection is disabled, malicious codes can infect your computer or give hackers access to your personal information and electronic payments.

That's why the browser will warn you if your protection against malicious software was disabled and suggest that you re-enable it:

To re-enable protection, click the Enable button in the message. You can also enable protection in the settings.

  1. Click  → Settings.
  2. Go to the Protect tab at the top of the page.
  3. Under Threat security, enable blocking of malicious sites and files (Run security checks on websites and downloaded files option).
