Mobile Yandex.Browser allows you to prevent websites from tracking your actions in the internet and does not allow websites to detect the battery charge on your smartphone.

  1. Disable user tracking
  2. Battery level tracking

Disable user tracking

Disable tracking is an option that prevents websites from tracking your activities in the internet. For example, web analytics services or ad networks can collect information about what you do in the network and use it to display ads.

The Do Not Track option is disabled by default in Yandex.Browser.

Restriction. Not all websites understand the Do Not Track request. Many of them will still continue to collect and use data about your internet activity.

To prohibit sites from collecting information:

  1. Tap the icon (if there is no icon, tap the menu button on the smartphone).
  2. Choose Settings.
  3. Tap Site capabilities in Advanced.
  4. Enable Do Not Track.

Battery level tracking

By default, the mobile Yandex.Browser hides the smartphone battery level from programs, because this information can be used to track your behavior on the internet. The battery charge level can be used to identify the user even after changing the IP address and other public data. Online shops and services might raise prices for urgent items or services when the battery is almost empty, because the user does not have time to look for an alternative.

If you want to allow websites to track the battery level:

  1. Tap the icon (if there is no icon, tap the menu button on the smartphone).
  2. Choose Settings.
  3. Tap Site capabilities in Advanced.
  4. Disable Hide battery charge level from sites.
