Configure location access

Sites and apps request access to your location so that they can give you more accurate search results and relevant information (for example, the local weather forecast).

You can specify your city in the Yandex settings. The information for your city will be displayed in search results and geo-dependent Yandex services (for example, in Yandex Maps).

To learn how to configure location access for sites, select your device type, browser, or operating system.
