Protect: blocking undesirable advertising

How blocking works

If a site you opened or an extension installed in Yandex.Browser tries to load banners or pop-ups with annoying advertising, browser blocks these elements.

To load blocked contents:

  1. In the right part of the SmartBox, click any Protect toolbar icon.
  2. In the Some content was blocked section, click the More info link.
  3. Click Unblock.

Disable blocking

Attention. To disable unwanted advertising, you need to completely disable browser protection against malicious software and websites in Yandex.Browser. We do not recommend this.

To disable malware protection:

  1. Click   → Settings.
  2. In the lower half of the Settings page, click Show advanced settings.
  3. In the Privacy section, disable the Enable protection from malicious websites and software option.
  4. Restart the browser to apply the changes.
