Filter out annoying ads

Which ads are considered intrusive

Yandex Browser filters out intrusive ad formats, in accordance with the recommendations of IAB Russia. It sets criteria for high-quality ads and promotes the development of interactive advertising that reflects a user's interests.

  • Full-screen banners that appear immediately after the page loads. You can close the banner after a countdown, or it closes automatically.
  • Full-screen banners that appear after the user has been on the site for a certain amount of time. May be closed immediately or after a countdown.
  • Video ads with sound that play automatically.

To learn more about the recommendations that the browser uses to filter ads, see the presentation of the Industrial Committee of IAB Russia for improving advertising.
