Personal data management

When you use Yandex services, your personal data remains in the system — for example, your search or message history in Yandex Messenger. We store this data with utmost care and make sure it's well-protected. Our repositories comply with SOC 2, which is one of the most reliable international standards for managing user data.

Your data on Yandex is the page where you can manage your personal data.

  1. Open Your data on Yandex and make sure you are logged in with the correct Yandex ID.
  2. Click Download data.
  3. Click Create archive.

Yandex will notify you by email when the archive is ready for download. If you don't have a Yandex mailbox, you have to check the information on the page to find out the archive status.

Note. The archive will be password-protected. To learn how to get a password and open the archive, see the Yandex ID Help section.
