This article concerns:

  • Kaspersky Internet Security
  • Kaspersky Anti-Virus
  • Kaspersky Total Security

See this guide for instructions on how to renew the license for Kaspersky Security Cloud.


We recommend that you connect your application to My Kaspersky to save your license information in your account. For instructions, see this article.

To renew the license for your Kaspersky application:

  • Buy the renewal activation code. For details, see this article. Add it to the application. See the instructions below.
  • Use the license with auto-renewal. See the details in the article. The license will be renewed automatically within 24 hours. If the license did not renew automatically, see the instructions in the article.

Once you entered the renewal code, the application automatically checks whether you have got a previous license. If the previous license is not found, the application will ask you to enter it manually. See this article for more information.

If you have bought subscription for a Kaspersky application from a third-party service provider, you can manage your subscription by contacting the provider. For details, see the documentation.
