Location data

During installation, Yandex Browser asks for permission to use your location information. You have the option to allow or deny permission, as you see fit. By default, your region is determined using your tablet's location.

Information about your location is used for the following purposes:

  • Sites can show you the most relevant information (for example, the local weather or traffic info on a map).
  • Accurate search suggestions are displayed in the SmartBox (about the weather, for example).
  • Settings show a list of search engines used in your area.
  • The Tableau displays a collection of sites set by default for your area.

Set the search region manually

  1. Tap  → Settings.
  2. Go to the Search section.
  3. Tap Region.
  4. Select the region.
Note. If you chose your own search engine and pinned your own sites to the Tableau, changing your region will not affect these settings.
