3 October 2023

ID 231204

Functionality is not available in some regions.

Available only in Kaspersky Standard, Kaspersky Plus, and Kaspersky Premium.

You can use your subscription to protect all your devices running OS Windows and other operating systems. The exact number of devices on which you can use the subscription was specified in subscription properties when you were making your purchase.

You can always check how many devices you are already protecting and how many more you can protect in the Profile section of the application and in your My Kaspersky account. There you will also find easy-to-use tools for sharing your protection with other devices.

To share protection using those tools, you do not need to remember the activation code, the subscription is transferred through your account. If you have never signed in to your My Kaspersky account on the relevant device, we will ask you to do so as part of the process. After the installation, your applications are automatically activated with the subscription from your account.

To share protection from your application:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Go to the Profile section.
  3. Click the Add button. In some subscription, the text on the button reads Protect device.
  4. In the Protect more devices window, select one of following options:
    • Scan a QR code

      On the QR code tab, point your phone's camera to the QR code.

      On your mobile device, this opens the Google Play store, App Store, or Huawei AppGallery at the application download page. After you download and install the app, it automatically connects to My Kaspersky and starts protecting your device.

      By using a QR code on an Android device, you agree to provide a one-time password to Google Play to activate the application on your smartphone.

    • Send a link by email
      1. Go to the By email tab.
      2. Click the link.

        This opens My Kaspersky sign-in window in your default browser.

      3. In the Send by email window, enter the email address in the text box and click Send.
      4. Download the application by following the link in the email.

        After downloading and installation, the application automatically connects to your My Kaspersky account.

In some subscription plans, only the general information about the total number of devices that you can protect may be displayed.

To learn more about remote management of device protection, revoking the subscription from a user, or revoking the subscription from a device, see My Kaspersky Help.
