Activation code is a code that you receive on purchasing the commercial license for Kaspersky Internet Security. This code is required for activation of the application.
The activation code is an alphanumeric string of Latin characters in xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx format.
The activation code is provided in one of the following forms, depending on the way you purchase the application:
- If you have purchased the boxed version of Kaspersky Internet Security, the activation code is specified in the documentation or on the box containing the setup CD.
- If you have purchased Kaspersky Internet Security at an online store, the activation code is sent to the email address that you have specified when ordering the product.
The validity term of the license starts from the moment you have activated the application. If you have purchased a license intended for the use of Kaspersky Internet Security on several devices, the validity term of the license starts counting down from the moment you have entered the code on the first of those devices.
If you have lost or accidentally deleted your activation code after the activation, you should send a request to the Technical Support Service at Kaspersky Lab from My Kaspersky Account.
On completion of the application activation with a code, you are assigned a client ID. Client ID is a personal ID of a user that is an indispensable condition for receiving technical support by phone or in My Kaspersky Account.
