Extensions

Extensions are programs embedded in the browser that you can use to add the functions you need to the browser (for example, blocking unpleasant ads, viewing websites at night or managing passwords). You can install extensions from the Opera Catalog in Yandex.Browser.

Attention. Extensions are developed by the browser team and third-party programmers, and some of these may be malicious. Malicious extensions are common, so Yandex.Browser disables extensions from unverified sources and regularly checks previously installed extensions for fakes.
