You can renew the license. To do this, you can specify a new activation code without waiting for the current license to expire. When the current license expires, Kaspersky Internet Security is activated automatically with the extra activation code.

To specify an extra activation code for automatic renewal of the license:

  1. Open the main application window.
  2. In the lower part of the main window, click the License: N days remaining link to open the Licensing window.
  3. In the window that opens, in the New activation code section, click the Enter activation code button.
  4. Enter the activation code in the corresponding fields and click the Add button.

    Kaspersky Internet Security then sends the data to the Kaspersky activation server for verification. After the license expires, the activation server rechecks the data during the first attempt to activate the application with the new activation code.

  5. Click the Done button.

The new activation code will be displayed in the Licensing window.

If you enter a new activation code that was issued for multiple devices, you must follow the steps to apply the new code on all devices where you want to renew the license automatically.

The application is automatically activated with the new activation code when the license expires. You can also activate the application manually with a new activation code, by clicking the Activate now button. This button is available if the application has not been activated automatically. This button is unavailable before the license expires.

If the new activation code that you specify has already been applied on this computer or on another computer, the activation date for the purpose of renewing the license is the date on which the application was first activated with this activation code.

When you renew the current license, the activation code does not change. The license will be automatically renewed in the application after purchase. You do not need to re-enter the activation code in the application.

It can take up to 24 hours after purchase before the correct license status is displayed.
