Questions about security

How is Yandex.Browser protected?

Yandex.Browser uses its own integrated security system called Protect, which includes scanning downloaded files for viruses, blocking infected and fraudulent websites and shocking advertising, and securing Wi-Fi connections, user passwords, and browser settings.

What type of virus protection does Yandex.Browser have?

Yandex.Browser scans everything for viruses. If, according to our data, a file may present a threat, the browser displays a warning on the download bar.

For more information, see the section Protect: protection from malicious pages.

Will the Yandex.Browser protection conflict with my antivirus program?

The security mechanism in Yandex.Browser doesn't conflict with other security applications (anti-virus software and firewalls). It's worth bearing in mind that it does not guarantee complete protection of your computer from modern Internet threats. For full security, we recommend using fully-functional antivirus products.

How can I turn on the family content filter?
