Log in to Yandex

To use Yandex personal services (Mail, Disk, and others), you must use one of the following log in methods:

  1. Switch between accounts
  2. How to log in to Yandex on a third-party device safely
  3. Two-factor authentication

Switch between accounts

If you have several Yandex accounts, you can switch between them without entering your other usernames and passwords:

A list of three accounts will unfold from the name in the header.

Just select an account in Passport and on other Yandex services that support this function. The account you select will be the main one and will be used to log in to services that currently don't allow you to switch between accounts.

You can add up to 15 accounts to the list. To delete an account from the list, switch to that account and click Log out. That account will disappear from the list and you will automatically be logged in to the next one.

Note. The Log out link on the Yandex main page and in the search results will clear all accounts from the list. To continue working you will need to log in again.

To remove several accounts, go to Add account and click Edit list.

How to log in to Yandex on a third-party device safely

When you open a Yandex service, you have to re-enter the password only if you didn't visit Yandex services for three months. This is convenient for personal or home computers, but can be dangerous on public computers (for example, in an internet cafe): if you forget to log out of your account, the next person with the same computer will get access to your data.

To secure your account on someone else's computer, use incognito mode in the browser.

If there is no browser that supports incognito mode on the computer:

  • Turn off the autofill and passwords saving options.

  • Before you start working, clear the cache and delete cookies.

  • When finish:

    • Log out of your account — click your portrait in the upper right corner and choose Log out in the drop-down menu.
    • Clear the cache again and delete the cookie files.
  • If you forgot to log out of your account on someone else's device, follow the Log out on all devices link on the Account management page.

Two-factor authentication

No matter how good your password is, someone can still look over your shoulder or steal it (such as with a virus). To protect your account, you can choose to use one-time passwords exclusively.

You can learn more about one-time passwords and two-factor authentication in the Two-factor authentication section.
