The activation code for all box versions or products bought from retail stores can be found printed on the CD sleeve. Box products will have the code on the Quick Start Guide which is included in the box - see below illustration:
If you have purchased Kaspersky Mobile Security via E-Store, the activation code will be sent to you via e-mail you have specified when making the order.
An unused activation code can be activated at any time, but the license will begin to expire on the day of initial activation.
This information does not refer to trial activation codes which go on CD-disks in magazines. Validity period of trial activation codes is restricted.
If you have purchased a Kaspersky Lab product, but you do not have an activation code to activate the application, then you can purchase a license in E-Store or from our partners.
