To log in to your Yandex account:

Why should I have a Yandex username and password?

You may need a Yandex username and password to use certain services, such as Mail or Disk.

If you log in to Yandex from a social network, you are given the option to create a Yandex username and password.

What should I do if I forgot my social network password and can't log in to Yandex services?

Yandex does not know your social network password. If you forgot this password and you do not have a Yandex username, try recovering your password on the social networking site.

If your social network account is linked to the Yandex account that you entered a password for, try restoring access in the Yandex ID settings.

How to find the ID number that a Yandex Support representative will ask for

If a Yandex employee needs your username to solve a problem, but you have not yet created one, just copy the number from the Account management page.

Is it safe to log in via a social network?

When you log in to Yandex, your social network account remains secure. You do not need to tell Yandex your social network password; you only need to allow Yandex to access the most basic information about you.

After registering, you can stop Yandex from accessing your account at any time by deleting it from the Social networks page.
