Today I installed Kaspersky Internet Security 2020 and noticed that Parental Control is no longer available. Instead of Parental Control, Safe Kids is shown and needs to be downloaded separate. Furthermore, a separate licence is required for it. Please help me.

I am sorry to say that Safe Kids is not available in KIS 2020. Maybe it was in 2019, but I guess not anymore. Below you can see what does KIS offer.

Nice to know but you can still roll back to an older version to continue using parental controls as before though

Day before yesterday I installed new version KIS 2020 and today I installed kids security same thing happened as commented here Parental Control option is gone. How do you retrieve that option without going to previous version?

Hello  @anzar277,

Welcome!

Parental control has been replaced by Kaspersky Safe Kids. 

Reverting to a previous version is the only solution if you wish to use KPC. 

Thank you.

Hello @akisgian,

Welcome

KL Product builds

  • Note1: when the 2020 version is installed over the 2019 version which has Parental Control enabled, then Parental Control feature shall be available in the 2020 version.

If Parental Control is not enabled when performing the in-place upgrade, then the Parental Control feature will not be available in the 2020 version.

The install-over option works only when installing over a version that is 1 version behind. Therefore, when upgrading to a newer version that is 2 versions or more, there is a need to uninstall the old version first before installing the new one.

Thank you:pray_tone3:

I have Parental control in KIS 2020 without problem only KIS offering me try safe kids (i choose NO 🙂 ).

And also if you want parental control in next upcoming 2021 version you must have enabled parental control in Kaspersky 2020 and install new version 2021 OVER version 2020 (do not uninstall old) simply run installation package.

Also when i restart first time i choose not interested for safe kids  but still there wasnt the old parental control !!!

The first upgrade was from a message on kis that there is a new version ,and download , after this no parental control .
 


So i restored the system to see the version to an earlier version  but kis 19.0.0.1088 not working

 

Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 .

Country : Greece

Version : English  19.0.0.1088  i found after system restore 

 

So i download the upgrade tool  and works fine ,

The second upgrade , after restore i went to kaspersky safe kids and select not interested ,
and after this appears my old parental control with old settings for the kids
So the problem is when KIS showing notification for new version .

Thanks
