About the key
August 3, 2023
A key is a sequence of bits with which you can activate and subsequently use the application in accordance with the terms of the End User License Agreement. A key is generated by Kaspersky.
You can add a key to the application by using a key file. After you add a key to the application, the key is displayed in the application interface as a unique alphanumeric sequence.
Kaspersky can add a key to the denylist due to violations of the License Agreement. If your key is blocked, a different key must be added in order for the application to work.
A key may be an "active key" or an "additional key".
An active key is the key that the application currently uses to function. A key for a commercial or trial license may be added as the active key. The application can have no more than one active key.
An additional key is a key that confirms the right to use the application but is not currently in use. An additional key automatically becomes active when the license associated with the current active key expires. An additional key may be added only if there is an active key.
