Protect: block ads manually

You can disable an inappropriate ad manually and report it.

  1. Report an ad
  2. Hide annoying ads
  3. Hide ads on a new tab

Report an ad

You can also complain about ads that are distracting or annoying:
  1. Right-click on the ad block that is annoying you.
  2. Select Complain about ad in the context menu.

Every time you hide an ad, Yandex receives the following:

  • The page with the advertising that bothered you.
  • Which ad blocks you indicated on this page.

The more data of this type that Yandex Browser receives, the quicker it learns to distinguish bad ads from good ones and begins to show users ads that do not annoy them.

Hide annoying ads

  1. Go to the site that has intrusive advertising.
  2. Click  → Block annoying ads. You will see a message about hidden advertising at the top of the page, with the page shown under it.
  3. You can specify exactly which ad is bothering you – click it and the ad block turns black.
  4. Click Hide selected ads.

Hide ads on a new tab

When you open a new tab, an ad banner is displayed under the Tableau. We try to display ads that might be interesting to you. If you want to disable ads:

  1. Tap  → Settings.
  2. Go to Interface.
  3. In the New tab section, click Ad settings.
  4. In the Home page and new Yandex Browser tab, disable the Show ads option.
