If you have Kaspersky Internet Security installed on your computer, you can use Kaspersky Safe Kids, a solution that helps protecting your child – for free.

About Kaspersky Safe Kids

Kaspersky Safe Kids is a cross-platform solution that helps you monitor the security of your child in the real world and virtual world. It is up to you to decide what is safe for your child, such as what websites he or she can visit, how many hours he or she can spend using the computer or smartphone, and where he or she is allowed to walk. The application makes sure that your child obeys the rules you have set.

Kaspersky Safe Kids is compatible with Windows, macOS, Android and iOS devices. If you install Kaspersky Safe Kids on your devices and on the devices your child uses, you can manage the application on the child's devices using your My Kaspersky account or using parent mode of the application on your mobile device.

Kaspersky Safe Kids is available in two versions: Free and Premium.

To use Kaspersky Safe Kids, you must download the application installation package from the Internet and manually install the application on the computer.

If you use Kaspersky Safe Kids

Your child can disable Kaspersky Safe Kids using Kaspersky Internet Security. To avoid this, we recommend that you protect access to Kaspersky Internet Security settings with a password.

If you signed in to the operating system under an account that is linked to a child profile in Kaspersky Safe Kids, Kaspersky Internet Security stops showing the following notifications:

  • Notifications about security news
  • Notifications about the detection of weak settings in the operating system
  • Notifications about the current device connecting to a Wi-Fi network
  • Notifications about a device connecting to a home Wi-Fi network
  • Browser notifications about an insufficiently strong password being entered on a website
  • Notifications warning you that the password you are entering on a website has already been previously entered by you on a different website

You can enable notifications by selecting the Show notifications in children's accounts check box in the Notification settings window (SettingsInterfaceNotifications).

Kaspersky Safe Kids is not available in all regions.
