What can the app do?

The Yandex.Direct app is a mobile assistant that supplements the Yandex.Direct web interface with the most important features. You can use the app to quickly respond to changes in ad campaigns from your mobile.

In the app you can:

  • Manage your CPC.

  • Make a payment (only for individuals from Russia).
  • Start and stop impressions.
  • Add and edit keywords.
  • View information about campaigns, ads and keywords.
  • Track aggregated statistics.
  • Get push notifications about ad campaign events.
  • View information about all events on a separate screen.

What you can't do in the app:

  • Create advertising campaigns.
  • View vCards.
  • Select a display strategy.
  • Set time and geographic targeting.

The complete range of Yandex.Direct tools is available in the web interface and through Direct Commander.

What devices does the app work on?

The app is available on:

  • All iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), starting with version 10.0.
  • Android phones and tablets.

How quickly will changes I make in the app appear in the web interface and vice versa?

Changes made in the app appear in the web interface immediately (as soon as you open or refresh that page). The time it takes to activate changes is the same as in the web interface: for example, a new CPC will take effect within 10 minutes on average.

To refresh data on the app screen, drag the screen downward with your finger.

I lost my mobile phone. How do you protect my data against unauthorized access?

The app does not store your Yandex.Direct username and password. Instead, it gets a special token that gives it permission to access your data via the Yandex.Direct application programming interface (API). You may revoke this token at any time, which in turn revokes the app's access rights.

Go to the Direct web interface, find the API page, and tap the Get API access link.

Accept the API user agreement.

On the access control page, go to the My applications tab and tap the link to the OAuth service page.

On the OAuth service page for the Yandex.Direct app, tap Delete. From then on no one will be able to use the app to access your data in Yandex.Direct.

In the future you can install and use the Yandex.Direct app on another device. Your newly installed app will get a new token. The instance of the app that you had previously will not get that token and access to it will remain prohibited.
