Geolocation settings

Geolocation refers to the process of determining a user's location.A location can be determined by the IP-address of a device, GPS radio signal, by the closest available WiFi spot, or by a Cell ID number.

You can set whether or not you want to allow access to your device's location in your browser:


Google Chrome

Mozilla Firefox


Internet Explorer


Tip. You can also enter your city in the general Yandex Settings. Then the most relevant information for you will be displayed in Yandex search results and on services where your geolocation is important (for example, on Yandex.Maps and Yandex.Taxi).
