How location access is granted

Sites and apps request access to the location of your device in order to better respond to search queries and to provide users with relevant information (such as the local weather forecast). This location can be determined by the IP address of a device, the GPS radio signal, via the closest available Wi-Fi access point and by the Cell ID number.

You can allow or deny access to your location. Select your device type and browser from the lists below:

Tip. You can also enter your city in the Yandex location settings. By doing so, search results and Yandex geoservices (such as Yandex.Maps and Yandex.Taxi) will display information that is most relevant to you.
