Protect: block elements containing undesirable advertising

Yandex.Browser blocks banners and pop-up windows with annoying ads within the Protect integrated security system.

How blocking works

If a website you opened or an extension you installed in Yandex.Browser tries to download banners or pop-up windows with unwanted ads, the browser will block these elements:

To load blocked contents:

  1. In the right part of SmartBox, click any Protect toolbar icon.
  2. In the Some content was blocked section, click the More info link.
  3. Click Unblock.

Disable blocking

Attention. If you want to disable blocking of unwanted ads, you will have to completely disable protection against malware and malicious sites in the browser. We strongly recommend that you don’t do this.

To disable blocking of unwanted ads:

  1. Click   → Settings.
  2. In the lower half of the Settings page, click Show advanced settings.
  3. In the Protection against malware and malicious sites section, turn off Enable protection against malware and malicious sites.
  4. Restart the browser to apply the changes.

Use the same algorithm to re-enable blocking of annoying ads.
