About the activation code

An activation code is a code that you receive when you purchase a license for Kaspersky Anti-Virus. This code is required for activation of the application.

The activation code is a unique sequence of twenty digits and Latin letters in the format xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx.

Depending on how you purchased the application, you can obtain the activation code in one of the following ways:

  • When you purchase a boxed version of Kaspersky Anti-Virus, an activation code is provided in the manual or on the retail box that contains the installation CD.
  • When you purchase Kaspersky Anti-Virus from an online store, an activation code is emailed to the address that you have specified when ordering.

The license term countdown starts from the date when you activate the application. If you have purchased a license for the use of Kaspersky Anti-Virus on several devices, the license term starts counting down from the moment you first apply the activation code.

If you have lost or accidentally deleted your activation code after activating the application, contact Kaspersky Technical Support to recover your code.
