Synchronization is the ability to save your main browser settings and personal data on a special Yandex server including bookmarks, passwords, history , autofill forms, extensions, and open tabs. All information is transmitted to the Yandex server over a secure channel. Only encoded passwords are sent. Access to your data on the server is protected by the same authorization system as on other Yandex services.
How often is data synced?
After you turn on syncing, it is performed each time you change data that is stored on the server. For example, you added a bookmark on your smartphone. The browser sends it to the server and simultaneously downloads any changes you have made on other devices since the last time your smartphone was synced.
To sync browser data, you need to have a Yandex account. There are two ways to sign in:
Two-factor authentication offers greater account security than traditional passwords (which are complicated, have to be remembered, kept out of the reach of third-parties, frequently changed, etc.) Even if you take all these steps to protect your traditional password, it is still vulnerable to things like viruses that record your keystrokes. With 2FA, protecting your account is much simpler: you just need to remember a four-digit PIN code and have access to a smartphone or tablet where you have installed the Yandex.Key app with your account.
To turn on syncing:
On the Syncing page, enter your Yandex username and password. If you haven't registered on Yandex yet, click the link Create account in the same window, and follow the instructions.
