Protect: blocking downloads of unsafe content on HTTPS pages

The HTTPS protocol supports data encryption and is considered to be secure for transferring confidential information. However, connections over HTTPS are only safe if all page elements are encrypted. Sometimes website pages are loaded over HTTPS, but they contain unencrypted elements such as plug-ins, JavaScript, or CSS style sheets. Hackers can intercept and use these to crack the site. This is why Yandex Browser enables protection from unencrypted elements within the Protect integrated security system.

Внимание. We do not recommend downloading unencrypted elements if you are going to enter personal data or make online payments through this website.
If a page uses HTTPS but includes unencrypted elements, it is blocked and the icon appears on the right side of the SmartBox.

If you want to load blocked content:

  1. Click .
  2. Find the Some content was blocked message and click the More info link.
  3. On the Blocked tab, click the Unblock link.
