Syncing passwords

When you save passwords in Yandex.Browser, you can sync them between your computer and your Android smartphone or tablet. Passwords saved in the browser are stored in encrypted form on a special Yandex server. Syncing allows you to save the password from the browser on the computer, and use the saved password on your smartphone to log into the website. Passwords are always encrypted when they are sent to the Yandex server.
