Hackers spread malicious software that enters your computer and negatively impacts its performance and steals, damages or deletes your information. Malicious software may enter your computer through removable media or the internet. Yandex.Browser only protects users from malware distributed over the net.
Your browser will display a warning if you try to open unsecure pages. Yandex and our partners contribute to a special database containing the URLs of such pages.
Before you open a page, the browser checks to see if it is included in the infected resources database. If a website is included in the above database, the page will be blocked.
If there is a cached version of the page, you can view it by clicking Secure copy. Any unsafe page elements will be blocked.
You can, of course, choose to ignore the warning and visit a site with dangerous content.
