Disabling malware protection

Yandex Browser uses malware protection that blocks infected sites and pages. You can disable this protection:

Other computer users or malicious extensions can also disable your protection without notifying you. If protection is disabled, malicious codes may infect your computer or give hackers access to your personal information and electronic payments.

That's why Yandex Browser will warn you if your protection against malicious software was disabled and suggest that you enable it:

To re-enable protection, click the Enable button in the message. You can also enable protection in the settings.

  1. Click  → Settings.
  2. Go to the Protect tab at the top of the page.
  3. In the Threat security section, disable the Run security checks on websites and downloaded files option.
