The article refers to Kaspersky Security Cloud — Family and Kaspersky Security Cloud — Personal. 

Screen lockers are malicious programs that display a banner on the screen which cannot be closed and demand a ransom for removing it.

However, you will not necessarily receive an unlocking code if you do what criminals demand.

If you see a banner with a demand that you send a text message or make a money transfer to unlock the computer, use a keyboard shortcut that will cause Kaspersky Security Cloud to detect and remove the screen locker.
