Kaspersky Free


Error “Activation code is invalid for this region”

Back to "Troubleshooting"
2018 Nov 07 ID: 13814


The error “Activation code is invalid for this region” occurs when you try to activate the application that was intended for another country or region. For example, you might receive this error if you downloaded Kaspersky Free in the USA, and then tried and install and activate it in the UK.

This error can also occur if Secure Connection is enabled in Kaspersky Secure Connection


  1. If you have Kaspersky Secure Connection or any other VPN applications that allow changing your IP address installed, disable them.
  2. Activate Kaspersky Free in the region intended for the use of the license you have bought or download the version for your current region.
