Protect: malware protection
Yandex Browser for Mobile checks downloaded files for viruses and blocks pages with malicious software.
Blocking dangerous pages
When you open a web page, Yandex Browser checks it against its database of infected sites. If the page is found in the database, it won't load. The screen will display a notification and the icon will appear in the SmartBox. You can nevertheless choose to ignore the warning and visit a website with dangerous content.
Checking downloaded files for viruses
Downloaded files may contain malicious code. This is why the browser scans all archives and executable files that are downloaded both directly and in the background.
If a downloaded file contains a malicious program, the browser warns you and offers to delete the file.
Blocking mining scripts
To prevent miners from earning money by using your smartphone resources, Yandex Browser for Mobile blocks mining scripts from sites. Scripts can be blocked even if they are yet unknown to the browser. The browser analyzes the CPU load generated by sites and uses this data to block previously unknown mining scripts.
If you want to stop blocking mining scripts, disable ad filters in the browser.
