  1. Disable user tracking
  2. Battery level tracking

Disable user tracking

Do Not Track is an option that prevents websites from tracking your activities in the internet. For example, web analytics services or ad networks can collect information about what you do in the network and use it to display ads.

The Do Not Track option is disabled by default in Yandex.Browser.

Restriction. Not all websites honor the Do Not Track request. Even if you enable Do Not Track, many websites will continue to collect and use your browsing data.

To prohibit sites from collecting information:

  1. Tap   → Settings.
  2. Tap Site capabilities in Advanced.
  3. Enable Do Not Track.

Battery level tracking

By default the mobile Yandex.Browser hides the battery level of your tablet from apps, since this information can be used to track your behavior on the Internet. The battery charge level can be used to identify the user even after changing the IP address and other public data. Online shops and services might raise prices for urgent items or services when the battery is almost empty, because the user does not have time to look for an alternative.

If you want to allow websites to track the battery level:

  1. Tap   → Settings.
  2. Tap Site capabilities in Advanced.
  3. Disable Hide battery charge level from sites.
