Ad blocking by 3rd-party extensions

Attention. This function is not available for all users since it's still being developed.

You can use extensions to block ads in Yandex.Browser. Install an extension that is supported by the browser on your tablet, and it will block ads on websites.

Which extensions are supported

Yandex.Browser supports ad-blocking extensions that are compatible with Samsung Internet for Android, such as:

Unlike Antishock, which only blocks disturbing ads, 3rd-party extensions have their own blocking criteria. An outside extension is also responsible for updating ad filters.

Note. Developers of ad-blocking extensions can integrate them with Yandex.Browser using the Content Blocking API. Keep in mind that if an extension is compatible with Samsung Internet for Android, then it will automatically work with Yandex.Browser.

Enabling and disabling content blocking

To turn on ad blocking:

  1. Tap   → Settings.
  2. Go to the Content blocking section.
  3. Tap Blocking extensions.
  4. A list of ad-blocking extensions installed on your tablet will appear on your screen. Select the extension that you want to use.

To disable ad blocking, open your list of extensions and select Disable. If you delete the extensions in your list from your tablet, the Disabled option will be selected automatically.

Managing ad blocking on selected sites

From time to time, you might find that you need to allow certain sites to display ads. For example, when the extension blocked necessary page elements along with an ad, or when a site won't open while ad blocking is enabled.

Unblock ads on a site

Tap   → Unblock contents.

To resume ad blocking, tap Block content.
