    Any Concerns Using a Russian Browser?


    With secure browsing in mind, I've been experimenting with various browsers that are advertised to offer good security in the Internet. I'm currently trying Yandex, which is Russian designed. Knowing how adept the Russians are, do you think I should have any concerns about their software, as far as containing any sort of tracking malware. I do like the browser thus far and wouldn't mind using it as my main browser, unless any of you can think of a reason why I shouldn't. I use open wi-fi at the place where I live and have been using a portable hotspot device when doing any financial transactions. It appears that Yandex is pretty secure and safe . I think my concerns are unfounded. After all, there are other secure browsers that originate with foreign countries, such as Opera (China), as well as others.What are your thoughts?

    :)

  2. Does Russian phonetic keyboard for Windows 10 exists?

    Hi Aleksandr,



    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.



    I understand that you concern about using Russian keyboard on Windows 10.

    To assist you better, please provide the information:

    1. Are you referring to using On-Screen Keyboard for entering Russian words?

    2. Have you made any changes to the Computer prior to the issue?

    If you are planning to use On-Screen keyboard to write Russian words in Windows 10, then it will work.

    You need to download the language pack for Russian language and also input keyboard along with it in language settings.





    Reply to us with the information, so that we can assist you better.

    Let us know if you need any further assistance on Windows related issues and we will be glad to help.

  4. Any Concerns Using a Russian Browser?

    Basically you are saying, that Russian are too skilled. *Biggrin
    I would say, that is an advantage, especially in browser security.
    Russian Kaspersky is the best AV for personal use, integrated as well.
    It also uses Sophos webpage filter to warn about malware/phishing webapges.

    Protect: keeping you safe online - Yandex.Browser

    Yandex is Russian Google and Microsoft sort of likes it too.

    Russia's Yandex and Microsoft team up against Google - RT Business

    For the record, if you like privacy and do not like tracking, you should always use software made by "enemies". Like when you live in EU/US, prefer Russian/China software and vice versa. Agencies do not share.

    . Well, I've had second thoughts. I'm done playing with different browsers. I've uninstalled Yandex and reinstalled Chrome PLUS Express VPN. I think I'll be OK with that combo. *Smile

    Other browsers I've tried recently: Opera, Epic, Vivaldi, and others, whose names I've forgotten.

  6. It cant be worst than your available options, Yandex is Russias Google, but as far as to trust any browser offerings goes, I will pick opensource clients where you can audit the code or it can be easily audited.

    No matter what you pick, there is nothing 100% secure and there is nothing that cant be exploited.
