Browser for mobile (Android Smartphone)

Sync passwords

You can sync passwords that you've saved in Yandex.Browser on your computer and Android smartphone and tablet. Syncing passwords lets you, for example, save a password to your computer's browser and then use it to sign in to a site from your smartphone. Only encrypted passwords are sent to Yandex's server.
