Ad blocking using third-party extensions

Attention. This function is not available for all users since it's still being developed.

You can block ads in the Yandex.Browser using special extensions. Install the extension supported by the browser on your smartphone and it will block ads on websites.

  1. Supported extensions
  2. Enabling and disabling content blocking
  3. Controlling ad blocking on individual sites

Supported extensions

Ad blocking extensions compatible with Samsung Internet for Android are supported, for example:

Unlike Antishock, which blocks only shocking ads, third-party extensions can have other blocking criteria. A third-party extension also updates the advertising filters.

Note. Developers of ad blocking extensions can integrate them into the Yandex.Browser using the Content Blocking API. In this case, if the extension is compatible with Samsung Internet for Android, it will automatically be compatible with the Yandex.Browser.

Enabling and disabling content blocking

To turn on ad blocking:

  1. Tap the icon (if there is no icon, tap the menu button on the smartphone).
  2. Choose Settings.
  3. Go to the Content blocking section.
  4. Tap Blocking extensions.
  5. A list of ad blocking extensions installed on your smartphone will appear on the screen. Select the desired extension.

If you want to disable ad blocking, open the list of extensions and select Disable. If you remove the extension selected in the list from the smartphone, the Disable option will be selected automatically.

Controlling ad blocking on individual sites

Sometimes you may need to allow ads on a certain site. For example, if the extension has blocked important elements of the page together with ads or if the website cannot be accessed while ad blocking is turned on.

Unblock ads on a site
  1. Tap the icon (if there is no icon, tap the menu button on the smartphone).
  2. Tap Unblock content.

To resume ad blocking, tap Block content.
