When it comes to my PC’s security, I blindly trust Kaspersky products not just because Kaspersky products have been performing really well in the test results but also because Kaspersky Internet Security or Antivirus has never let me down in the past 7 years.
About a week ago, I reinstalled Windows operating system on my desktop computer. After installing the OS, I downloaded and started installing Kaspersky Internet Security. When I was asked to enter the product key of Kaspersky, I searched my PC as well as the external drive but couldn’t find the file containing the Kaspersky product license key that I had saved about 8 months ago.
Like many other security software out there, Kaspersky products also don’t offer an easy way to backup product license keys to a safe location. We have to manually jot down the key in a safe location or keep the Quick Start Guide (comes when purchased Kaspersky in an offline store), which contains the product key, in a safe location.
Although users who have legally purchased Kaspersky products can contact Kaspersky and submit all required information regarding the product purchase to get the product key from the support team, your request might be turned down if you can’t submit all required information.
Those of you who have legally purchased Kaspersky Internet Security or Kaspersky Antivirus program can easily recover your Kaspersky product key by following the steps mentioned in this article. The only condition though is that this method works only if you have registered your Kaspersky product.
This method is applicable to all Kaspersky products including Kaspersky Internet Security, Antivirus, and other programs.
Recover Kaspersky activation code
Method 1 of 3
Step 1: Head over to My Kaspersky page and sign-in to your account. Again, you’ll be able to sign-in only if you have registered your Kaspersky product.
Step 2: Here, click on the Codes tab.
Step 3: As you can see in the below picture, the 20 character product key of your registered Kaspersky antivirus or internet security will appear here. The page also provides information about the activation and expiration date of your registered key.
And if you haven’t registered your product, please do so the next time when you purchase a Kaspersky product.

Another way to recover Kaspersky key
You can contact Kaspersky support team to request the product key be providing purchase information. To do so, you first need to head over to My Kaspersky link provided in Method 1, sign up for My Kaspersky, and then submit a ticket with detailed information.
Method 3 of 3
Request Kaspersky support to re-send your order
If you had purchased the Kaspersky software from the official Kaspersky Store, then you can request to re-send your order. But before requesting, please search your inbox first for the mail containing the license key. Usually, when you purchase software from any online store, the activation code or product key will be sent to your email address.
Hope this helps!
