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 an extension that is supported by your browser on your tablet, and it will bock ads that it finds on the sites that you browse.

  1. Supported extensions
  2. Enabling and disabling content blocking
  3. Managing ad blocking on selected 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  → Settings.
  2. Go to the Content blocking section.
  3. Tap Content blocker extensions.
  4. The screen will display a list of ad blocking extensions that have been installed on your tablet. Select the desired extension.

To disable ad blocking, open your list of extensions and select Disable. If you delete the extension from your tablet, the Disabled option will be selected automatically from the list of extensions.

Managing ad blocking on selected sites

Sometimes you will be required to allow ads on a specific site. For example, if an extension blocks necessary page elements along with ads, or if a site can't open when ad blocking is enabled.

Unblock ads on a site

Tap   → Unblock contents.

To resume ad blocking, tap Block content in the menu.
