About the subscription
Dec 4, 2023
Subscription to Kaspersky Security Center is an order for use of the application under the selected settings (subscription expiration date, number of protected devices). You can register your subscription to Kaspersky Security Center with your service provider (for example, your internet provider). A subscription can be renewed manually or in automatic mode; also, you can cancel it.
A subscription can be limited (for example, one-year) or unlimited (with no expiration date). To continue using Kaspersky Security Center after a limited subscription expires, you must renew it. An unlimited subscription is renewed automatically if it has been prepaid to the service provider in due dates.
When a limited subscription expires, you may be provided a grace period for renewal during which the application continues to function. The availability and duration of the grace period is defined by the service provider.
To use Kaspersky Security Center under subscription, you must apply the activation code received from the service provider.
You can apply a different activation code for Kaspersky Security Center only after your subscription expires or when you cancel it.
Depending on the service provider, the set of possible actions for subscription management may vary. The service provider might not provide a grace period for subscription renewal and so the application loses its functionality.
Activation codes purchased under subscription cannot be used for activating earlier versions of Kaspersky Security Center.
When the application is used under subscription, Kaspersky Security Center automatically attempts to access the activation server at specified time intervals until the subscription expires. This ensures that the information about the subscription is synchronized with the activation server. If access to the server using system DNS is not possible, the application uses public DNS servers. You can renew your subscription on the service provider's website.
You can update the information about the subscription manually, without waiting for Kaspersky Security Center to access the activation server. For example, this might be useful when you change the subscription settings.
To update the information about the subscription manually:
- In the console tree, select the Kaspersky Licenses folder.
- Click Additional actions, and from the drop-down list select Synchronize subscription settings with Licensing server.
The information about the subscription is updated on the activation server.
