How blocking works

If a site you opened or an extension installed on Yandex.Browser tries to load banners or pop-ups containing undesirable advertising, the browser will block these elements:

To load blocked contents:

  1. In the right part of SmartBox, click any Protect toolbar icon.
  2. In the Block ads on this site section, click More.
  3. Click Unblock.

Disable blocking

Attention. If you want to disable blocking of unwanted ads, you will have to completely disable protection against malware and malicious sites in the browser. We strongly recommend that you don’t do this.

To disable blocking of unwanted ads:

  1. Click   → Settings.
  2. Go to the Security tab at the top of the page.
  3. In the Protect against malicious sites and files section, turn off the Enable protection from sites and downloads option.
  4. Restart the browser to apply these changes.

Use the same algorithm to re-enable blocking of annoying ads.
