Vibration

Note. This setting is only available for devices that support vibration mode.

Mobile site developers can enable vibration on your smartphone using the Vibration API without needing to request your permission. This interface was developed for cases where tactile feedback is required. It can be used in web games (for shooting or in races) or for duplicating audio signals for users with hearing problems.

Phishing sites have learned to use vibration to capture the user's attention and intimidate them. For this reason, the Vibration API is disabled in Yandex Browser for Mobile by default.

Note. This setting does not affect the vibration when receiving notifications from websites. A different interface, the Web Notifications API, is used for sending these notifications. Vibration for notifications is always enabled in Yandex Browser for Mobile.

  1. Tap (if you don't see this button, press the menu button on your smartphone).
  2. Select Settings.
  3. Under More settings, tap Site capabilities.
  4. Enable Allow sites to use vibration.
