The license key is a sequence of bits that can be used to activate the application for further usage in accordance with the terms of the End User License Agreement. License key is generated by Kaspersky experts.

You can add a license key to the application using one of the following methods: by applying a key file or by entering an activation code. After you add a key to the application, the license key is displayed in the application interface as a unique alphanumeric sequence.

The license key may be blocked by Kaspersky, if the terms of the End User License Agreement are violated. If the license key is blocked, add another license key for proper application operation.

A license key may be active or reserve.

Active license key is currently used to run the application. A license key for a trial or commercial license can be added as the active key. The application cannot have more than one active license key.

Reserve license key is a license key that entitles the user to use the application, but is not currently in use. The reserve license key automatically becomes active when the license associated with the current active license key expires. A reserve license key can be added only if an active license key is already added.

A trial license key can only be added as an active license key. A trial license key cannot be added as a reserve license key.
