Protect: blocking downloads of unsafe content on HTTPS pages

The HTTPS protocol supports data encryption and is considered to be secure for transferring confidential information. However, connections over HTTPS are only safe if all page elements are encrypted. Sometimes website pages are loaded over HTTPS, but they contain unencrypted elements such as plug-ins, JavaScript, or CSS style sheets. Hackers can intercept and use these to crack the site. This is why Yandex Browser turns on protection from unencrypted elements within the Protect security system.

Attention. We do not recommend downloading unencrypted elements if you are going to enter personal data or make online payments through this website.
If a page uses HTTPS but includes unencrypted elements, then they will be blocked.

If you want to load blocked content:

  1. Click .
  2. In the Ad and tracker blocking section, click Settings.
  3. Click Unblock in this tab.
