Sync settings

Syncing lets you save your main browser settings and personal data on a designated Yandex server. All information is transmitted to the Yandex server over a secure channel. Only encoded passwords are sent. Access to your data on the server is protected by the same authorization system as on other Yandex services.

How sync works

By default, passwords, sites on Tableau, bookmarks, input forms, and open tabs are synced.

After you enable syncing, data will be synced each time you change data that is stored on the server. For example: when you add a bookmark to your smartphone, the browser sends it to the server and simultaneously downloads all the changes you made on other devices (since the last sync).

Syncing lets you:

  • Open the browser with your personal settings on any smartphone or mobile device.
  • Save the browser settings even if your smartphone is not working.
  • View open tabs and bookmarks on synced devices.
  • Transfer phone numbers found on web pages to your phone from your computer or iPad (using the Push to Call option).

You can turn off syncing or adjust the list of data to sync at any time when using the browser.
