Import automatically

When you install Yandex Browser, it suggests transferring your data.

The type of data that is imported depends on the operating system and browser it is imported from.

Attention. If you chose the browser by mistake, you will not be able to cancel the data import. The data will be added immediately. To delete this data, delete the current profile, then create a new one, and import the data manually from another browser.
  • Importing passwords from Internet Explorer is possible only in Windows 8, 10 and higher.
  • Yandex Browser imports passwords from Mozilla Firefox with the same bit depth. For example, Yandex Browser (32-bit) imports passwords from Mozilla Firefox (32-bit).

  3. In the window that opens, select the browser you want to import your data from.
  4. Select which data you want to transfer (bookmarks, passwords, and so on).
  5. Click Import.
