During installation, the Yandex Start app requests permission to use your location information. You can either allow or deny permission.

Information about your location is used for the following purposes:

  • Sites can show you information relevant for your area, such as weather, traffic, or a map.
  • The address bar can display accurate search suggestions (for example, about the weather).
  • Settings can show a list of search engines that are used in your area.

By default, your area is determined based on the location of your device.

  1. Tap (profile picture) → App settings.

  2. Open Location.
  3. Disable the Auto detect option.
  4. Tap Select manually.
  5. Enter the name of your city.
