All information is transferred to the Yandex server over a secure channel. In addition, passwords are sent only in encrypted format. Access to your data on the server is protected by the same authorization system as on other Yandex services.
To sync browser data, you need to have a Yandex account. There are two ways to sign in:
Two-factor authentication offers greater account security than traditional passwords (which are complicated, have to be remembered, kept out of the reach of third-parties, frequently changed, etc.) Even if you take all these steps to protect your traditional password, it is still vulnerable to things like viruses that record your keystrokes. With 2FA, protecting your account is much simpler: you just need to remember a four-digit PIN code and have access to a smartphone or tablet where you have installed the Yandex.Key app with your account.
To turn on syncing:
On the Syncing page, enter your Yandex username and password. If you haven't registered on Yandex yet, click the link Create account in the same window, and follow the instructions.
Note that at this point the browser offers to install an app for accessing , a service that lets you store files on Yandex servers for free. If you have already installed this app, the browser prompts you to turn it on, so you will be able to store browser files on Yandex.Disk.

The user's personal profile displays personal settings such as the browser appearance, bookmarks, passwords, browsing history, installed extensions, apps and plug-ins, autofill forms, and so on.
If there are several different users on your computer, such as family members or co-workers, we recommend creating a separate browser profile for each user. This will prevent mixing your personal settings and data with others'.
Browser profiles are managed in a separate section of settings:
As soon as a profile is created in the browser, you will see its icon in the upper-right corner of the window. To switch between profiles, click the icon for the current profile.
We recommend creating a separate browser profile for each Yandex login. Otherwise, at some point you might combine the settings and data from several profiles while syncing a profile with a different username.
If you want to start syncing on a different computer, make sure you are using your own browser profile (if necessary, create a new profile), and do not begin syncing until you have done so. Otherwise, you might mix your settings and data with someone else's profile that is currently active.
