Activating a key card licence

I bought a licence for my security that included a card> Now I am a but dumb with these things so I peeled off the plastic strip expecting to find an activation code (Kaspersky Android) but all I found was a set of ten letters.
Thinking this was the code I entered it in only to find it told me it was not the code required. So what do I have to do to get that activation code?? No instructions on the packet or on the Kaspersky site.
Now to make matters worse I bought a 3 machine 2 year licence for Kaspersky for my other machines as that was cheaper than renewing the existing licence, and if the same thing applies then I shall be stuck.

I have asked support out here but they are really quite slow. In the meantime the free version appears to work.

But thanks for something to be getting on with

No go Brian have tried all sorts of things - what I don't get at all is that the back of the key licence card does not have an activation code on it only a string of ten letters.
I have never used these cards before and I did post asking if someone could point me in the right direction but no replies.
So I reckon I am stuck until Monday when I shall have to phone Kaspersky in Melbourne and ask them what the dickens is going on.

It really annoys me when things like this happen as the are quick enough to take the money yet we end up with complete and utter muck ups like this.

I hope I get some proper answers because I also bought a 3 machine 2 year licence card to renew my other three machines that are due for renewal and the card cost way less than the ordinary licence renewal method.

Well Brian and Ranger perhaps I am reading it wrong but the app was on the phone and it installed but when I go to Premium features it then goes to get all features but that is when the fun begins it says Purchase a licence or I have an activation code.
Now of course all I have is that ten letter screed on the licence card I bought and it is not an activation code. So I am left wondering what the heck do I have to do to get the activation code??

I did read those articles before Ranger but nothing that is suggested throughout those links is of any use to me.

I shall have to leave it until tomorrow and contact Kaspersky in Melbourne and drag it out with them.

Quite frankly I don't know why the activation code could not be on that card one buys it seems crazy. Having dealt with Kaspersky support before I know how convoluted it can get and that in itself is a pain for sure.

Thanks Brian it is only when I go to the Premium Features on the phone (a little golden crown) to a screen that says Anti-Virus and at the bottom it says "Get all features" (now those features are SMS anti Phishing / Privacy Protection /Web Protection) click on that Get all and it goes to a screen showing "Purchase a licence" (which I have with that stupid card) or "I have an activation code".
Click on the latter and a screen comes up with "Enter the code here" and it is a 4 X 5 alpha-numerics code ie 123AB-456DF-678GH-ABC12
