Protect: save passwords

When you enter a password on a website for the first time, the Yandex Browser asks if you want to save it. When you visit this website in the future, your saved password will be entered for you automatically.

  1. Automatically save passwords
  2. Switching between usernames
  3. Password saving settings

Automatically save passwords

Attention. To protect your data, use passwords that are complex but easy to remember on all websites.

The browser remembers entered passwords by default. If you don't want to save a password for a specific website, disable the Save in browser option that pops up under the field for password entering.

If you previously created a a master password, you must enter it when saving a password from a website. A master password is used in the encryption algorithm and ensures a higher protection level, since it is stored only in your memory.

Switching between usernames

To log in to a website using a different name, put the cursor in the field where you enter your username. The browser will display a list of usernames you have used for various websites. Select one of them.

Password saving settings

To disable password saving in the browser:

  1. Click  → Password manager.
  2. If you have already created a master password, enter it to get access to storage.
  3. Go to Settings.
  4. You can select from several options:
    • Allow sites to save passwords — if you turn off this option, browser will not allow to login without entering password on sites, supporting CredentialManager API.
    • Save passwords by default — if you turn off this option, browser will not save passwords but will enter previously saved passwords in the fields of the login form.
    • Auto-fill login forms — if you turn off this option, browser will not enter login and password in the fields of the login form. If you turn on this option, you can choose what data browser will enter in the login form: login and password or only login.
