  • Check that your internet connection is stable. You can go to and check the connection speed (we recommend doing this multiple times).

  • If you're using a Windows OS, check whether secure connections are enabled:

    Windows 10
    1. Click the Start button and select Settings from the menu.
    2. In the settings window, start typing internet options in the search box. In the list that appears, click the Internet Options link.
    3. In the Internet Properties window, go to the Advanced tab.
    4. Make sure that the Use TLS 1.0 option is enabled in the Settings Security section.
    Windows 7
    1. In Internet Explorer, click (Service) → Internet Options in the upper-right corner of the window.
    2. In the Internet Properties window, go to the Advanced tab.
    3. Make sure that the Use TLS 1.0 option is enabled in the Security section.
  • Check access to the Yandex.Direct API: click the https://api.direct.yandex.ru link in the Edge browser (for Windows 10 users), Internet Explorer (for Windows 7 users), or Safari (for macOS users). The word "hello" should appear on the screen.

    If the page fails to open, check your antivirus and firewall settings, since these programs can block the connection to the server.
