Save password

Entered on a website

By default, the browser remembers the password you have entered on a site. If this is not what you want, turn off the Save in browser option, which opens under the box when you enter the password.

If you enter a password with no username into a form, the browser suggests earlier saved usernames.

If you previously created a master password, you will need to enter it. A master password is used in the encryption algorithm and ensures a higher protection level, since it is stored only in your memory.

Generated on a site

It is harder to hack automatically generated passwords. You don't need to memorize them: the manager puts the password into the form automatically, and you can view it anytime you wish. To protect passwords in the vault, use a master password.

Note. The password generator opens automatically if the browser has recognized a form for registering or changing your password.

To generate a password:

  1. Place the cursor in the password field.
  2. Click .
  3. In the drop-down list, click the generated password.
Entered in the Password Manager
  1. Click  → Password manager.
  2. If you have already created a master password, enter it to access your vault.
  3. Click Add in the upper-right corner.
  4. In the window, enter the website address, login and password. To check that you entered your password correctly, click .
Tip. Similarly, you can save your SNILS, passport number, and other confidential information in the password manager. After syncing, the data becomes available on all your devices. You don't have to worry about the security of your data because it is stored in encrypted format. For more information, see the article How to encrypt any important information in the browser (in Russian).

View, change or delete your password

  1. Click  → Password manager.
  2. If you have already created a master password, enter it to access your vault.
  3. A list of websites you have saved passwords for appears on the screen. Select one of them. If there are too many sites in the list, start entering the site address in the Search passwords field in the upper-left corner. This filters the list to the right.
  4. Click the name of the appropriate site.
  5. View, change, or delete your password:

    In the window that opens, click in the Password field.

Change the manager settings

To manage how passwords are saved in Yandex Browser:

  1. Click  → Password manager.
  2. If you already created a master password, enter it in the window that opens.
  3. In the tab that opens, click the Settings link to the left of the password list.
  4. Select the appropriate options:
    • Allow sites to save passwords in the browser and log you in automatically. Some sites (those that support the CredentialManager API) let you log in without a password. That way you can log in just by clicking and selecting your username. If you want to disallow automatic authorization, disable this option.
    • Save passwords by default — if you turn off this option, the browser will not save passwords you enter from now on, but will insert passwords you saved earlier in authorization forms.
    • Auto-fill login forms — if you turn off this option, the browser will not insert usernames or passwords into authorization forms. If this option is turned on, you can allow the browser to insert both your usernames and passwords in forms, or only your usernames.

Disable the password manager

If you use a third-party password manager and do not want the browser to save and insert passwords:

  1. Click  → Password manager.
  2. If you have already created a master password, enter it to access your vault. If you forgot your master password, click anywhere on the screen outside of the window.
  3. In the tab that opens, go to Settings.
  4. Click Disable password manager.

Now the browser stops saving passwords, inserting them into authorization forms and requesting your master password to access your vault. Passwords are kept encrypted on your computer and become available if you turn on the password manager again. To do this, click Enable password manager in the manager settings.
