Questions about installation and updates

Where can I download a full version of the installer?

Why do I need to install Adobe Flash Player together with the browser?

By default, Yandex.Browser uses Adobe Flash Player in NPAPI format. However, you can install the safer and faster PPAPI format of Adobe Flash Player together with the browser.

The new Flash Player is installed simultaneously with installation of Yandex.Browser. The installation window has the option Install Adobe Flash Player, which is selected by default.

If you don't turn off this option, Yandex.Browser initiates installation of Adobe Flash Player. You will need to agree to the UAC requirements and go through all the steps for installing the plug-in.

The plug-in will be updated automatically, but only after you have agreed to allow updates.

How can I disable the browser update in the background?

Yandex.Browser is updated automatically irrespective of whether you use it or not. This is for security reasons: new threats and vulnerabilities constantly arise in the internet and the browser gets new and better protection methods.

We do not recommend disabling automatic update in the background, but if you need to:

  1. Click the button
    [no-highlight[

    In the top right corner of the browser window

    ]no-highlight]
      Settings.
  2. In the lower part of the Settings page, click the Show advanced settings button.

  3. In the System section, disable the Update browser even when it's not open option.

Now automatic update in background is disabled. However, as soon as you open the browser, it immediately checks for updates and will do so regularly in the future when running.

It is not possible to completely disable automatic update in the browser. We recommend using the latest browser version to get maximum protection from internet threats.
