Collections

You can use Collections in Yandex Browser for Mobile. Select and save images and videos on what interests you. You can also add bookmarks to access them from other browsers. To expand your collections, log in to your Yandex account on all your synced devices.

Attention. You can update your collections without logging in on Yandex. However, you could easily lose your collections this way, like if you clear cookies or reinstall the browser. You also can't edit bookmarks or create new collections if you aren't logged in.
