Autosave information for forms

Attention. If you don't want your autofill information to be saved in the browser on a particular site, use Incognito mode. If necessary, you can disable form autofills in the browser.

The first time you enter information in a form (such as an address or phone number), the browser stores it. The next time you enter it, a list appears where you can choose to autofill your previously saved information.

Attention. When you enter a bank card number, Yandex.Browser will ask you if you want to save it. If you allow it to save your bank card number, the browser will enter it automatically in the future. If other people use your browser, we recommend that you not save your card data.

Queries in the browser “SmartBox”

By default, the browser saves your query history. When you enter a query you searched for previously, an arrow will appear on the right.

Note. You can not disable query saving in the SmartBox. If you don't want your search queries to be saved in the browser, use Incognito mode.

To delete your saved search queries from the browser:

  1. Click  → Advanced → Clear history.

  2. In the Delete the following list, select the time range you want to delete search queries for.
  3. Check the Browsing history option.

Queries in the Yandex SmartBox

If you are signed in to Yandex, then your search queries will be saved by default. When you enter a query again, it will be purple. Additionally, the sites that you visit frequently will appear first in the search suggestions list.

On the Search tip settings page, you can disable query saving and suggestion ordering on Yandex search.
