Verification at login

If you log in from other device

If you log in from a new or someone else's device, Yandex may consider the login attempt suspicious. In this case we will send an SMS or call the main number linked to your account. Enter the code from the SMS or the last four digits of the phone number.

If the main number is currently unavailable, contact support or try to restore access on your own.

If you log in from an unusual place

If you log in from an unusual location or your actions resemble those of a robot, Yandex may consider the login attempt suspicious. We'll ask you to enter a CAPTCHA or the contact information linked to your account (a phone number or alternate email address). Hackers that don't know what email address or phone number you linked will not be able to log in to your account and Yandex will send you a notification every time there is a suspicious login attempt regardless.

You won't need a confirmation code to verify your account. Just correctly enter your full masked phone number or email address and click Continue:

If you have a confirmed alternate email address, you can enter it. To switch to checking the email address, click Use another confirmation method.

If you can't correctly enter the contact information masked in the form or restore access to your account, contact support.
