A single computer may be shared by several users with various levels of experience and computer literacy. Unrestricted access of different users to Kaspersky Anti-Virus and its settings may compromise the level of computer security.

To restrict access to the application, you can set an administrator password and specify the actions for which this password must be entered:

  • Configuring application settings
  • Quitting the application
  • Removing the application

To password-protect access to control over Kaspersky Anti-Virus:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. Click the Settings 2019.png button in the lower part of the window.

    The Settings window opens.

  3. In the left part of the window, select the General section and click the Set up password protection link to open the Password protection window.
  4. In the window that opens, fill in the New password and Confirm password fields.

    Password requirements:

    1. The password must contain at least eight characters
    2. The password must contain at least one digit
    3. The password must contain both uppercase and lowercase letters
  5. In the Password scope group of settings, specify the application actions to which you want to restrict access.

A forgotten password cannot be recovered. If you have forgotten your password, contact Technical Support to recover access to Kaspersky Anti-Virus settings.
