Log in, log out, and other account actions

Log in to Yandex.Disk

You can log in to your Yandex.Disk from any device with an internet connection. To do this, type disk.yandex.com in the browser address bar, enter your Yandex username and password, and click Enter. If you use or have previously used two-factor authentication, you will need a one-time password generated by the Yandex.Key app to log in.

Yandex.Disk is only available to users with Yandex accounts. If you use a social network profile or phone number to log in to Yandex, change your account type to Yandex account. To do this, on your Yandex.Passport profile page, tap Create username.

Tip. To quickly access Yandex.Disk, bookmark the Yandex.Disk page or make it your browser's home page.
Note. If you connect to the internet from someone else's device and don't want the browser to save your username and password, tick Don't remember me on the login page. Your session terminates when you close the browser or 2 hours after you stop using Yandex.Disk.

For more information, see Log in to Yandex.

Switch to another account

If you use several Yandex accounts, you can switch between them without entering your username and password:

You can choose an account in Yandex.Disk, Yandex.Mail, Yandex.Passport, and other Yandex services that support this feature. This account is considered the primary account: it is used to authorize you in services that don't support switching yet.

You can add up to 15 accounts to the list. To remove an account from the list, switch to that account and follow the Log out link. The current username disappears from the list and you automatically switch to the next one.

To remove multiple accounts from the list, follow Add user, click the icon in the top-left corner, and click the icon to the right of the account you want to remove.

Log out of Yandex.Disk

Open the account menu in the top-right corner of the screen and click the Log out button.

If you forgot to log out of Yandex.Disk on someone else's device, open the Yandex.Passport page and click the Log out on all devices link under Sign in and device history.

Attention. To further access Yandex services, you will need to re-enter your username and password on each device.
