Applies to Kaspersky KryptoStorage

You must get and register a commercial license to make Kaspersky KryptoStorage fully functional.


With the activated trial license, you can use the full-featured Kaspersky KryptoStorage for 30 days. The password length is limited by 1 character.

When any type of license expires, the functionality of the product is partially limited. You can use the existing (protected) objects. Specifically, you can access your information and decrypt the data. But you cannot create new protected objects, or get technical assistance. You can manage licenses using the Kaspersky KryptoStorage manager.

In order to run the Kaspersky KryptoStorage manager, perform the following actions:

  • From the Start menu select Programs - Kaspersky KryptoStorage - Kaspersky KryptoStorage.
  • In the opened window, click Licenses. This Licenses window contains a list of installed licenses and detailed information on each license:
    • type
    • serial number
    • current status
    • validity period.

To add a license to the list, click Add license…. In the opened dialog window, specify the path to a license file and click Open.


The added license must be given to the same user who owns all other licenses in the list. Otherwise you cannot add a license. 

To remove a license from the list, select the license and click Remove license


You cannot remove the Trial license from the license list.


ВниманиеIt is strongly not advised to remove the valid commercial license from the list. Otherwise, the functionality of the Product will be limited in a way similar to the expired license.

To get and install a license using an activation code, click Activate….

When you finish editing the list of installed licenses, click Exit to close the window.
