Users can manually install Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android from Google Play or Huawei AppGallery. The app can be installed by following the standard installation procedure of the Android platform. Users use their own Google accounts to install the application.

For details on the procedure of installing Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android from Google Play, see the Google technical support website.

For details on the procedure of installing Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android from Huawei AppGallery, see the HUAWEI Support website.

Some Huawei and Honor devices do not have Google services and therefore an access to apps in Google Play. If some users of Huawei and Honor devices cannot install the app from Google Play, they should be instructed to install the app from Huawei App Gallery.

After installing Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android from Google Play or Huawei AppGallery, you must prepare the app for use. The process of preparing the app for use includes the following steps:

  1. The administrator sends the settings of mobile device synchronization with the Administration Server (server address and port number) using any available method (for example, by sending an email message).
  2. The user can configure the settings of mobile device synchronization with the Administration Server during operation of the Initial Configuration Wizard or in the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android settings.
  3. The administrator creates a general certificate for the mobile device user.
  4. The user receives an automatic notification with a prompt to install the general certificate. When installation is confirmed, the general certificate is installed on the mobile device.

Internet access should be enabled on the mobile device for synchronization with the Administration Server.

See the Kaspersky Security Center Help for details on how to configure the settings of mobile device synchronization with the Administration Server and receive a general certificate.

During the next synchronization of the mobile device with Administration Server, the user's mobile device on which Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android is installed is moved to the Advanced → Device discovery → Domains folder in the administration group that was specified during installation of the application (the default group is KES10). You can move a mobile device to the administration group that you created in the Managed devices folder either manually or using automatic allocation rules.

This installation method is convenient if you want to install a specific version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android.

It is created on the basis of the Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Android installation package. The standalone installation package is a special case of an installation package.
