Thumbs up Are you aware of Yandex Protect?>Check the address bar link

Chrome has not got to this level of transparent Security Controls on the Yandex.browser's Address bar.

All you see on Chrome is a tiny padlock and the legend secure on the left side with a handful of Information but No Interaction possible here,have to Click the link to show the settings/switch list.

On the other Hand Yandex displays a Globe icon which denotes in its parlance its a regular HTTP Connection> change to Google that changes to a Padlock symbol
I clicked on the link and there is a link on the Info which leads to a Common page called Yandex Protect which shows the extent with Interactive links /walkthrough tutorials how secure they are making this browser.(In Plain English) I feel there should be a comparison article posted on this with the main browsers
NOTE Who else also has WiFi Connection and a Turbo link to speed this up slightly if your Internet connection is running very slow? And no going overboard on the settings like in Chrome they are present but kept in another place to stop wandering "Testers"

Protect keeps users’ personal data safe when they use an open Wi-Fi network, for example, in a café or an airport. Such networks are widespread and convenient, but they can be dangerous because users’ information can be easily intercepted. Protect routes Yandex.Browser traffic through a protected server, so that intercepting the data is impossible. The technology also blocks phishing sites – resources disguised as social networks or internet banking sites with the purpose of intercepting users’ personal data. If a user enters their login and password on such a site, Protect blocks the transmission of the data and warns of the danger. Protect also makes sure users do not go to sites with malicious code and automatically checks files downloaded from the internet for any viruses. If a file turns out to be dangerous, Protect does not allow it to be opened and harm the user’s device. The technology is described in more detail on Yandex’s blog (in Russian).
