Ad blocking using third-party extensions

Attention. This feature is in beta, so it is not available to all users.

You can block ads in 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 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 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 shows the ad blocking extensions installed on your tablet. Select the desired extension.

To turn off ad blocking, open the extension list and choose the Disabled option. If you delete the chosen extension from your tablet, Disabled is chosen automatically.

Managing ad blocking on selected sites

Sometimes you will be required to allow ads on a specific site. Examples are 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 content.

To resume ad blocking, tap Block content.
