Kaspersky
Question

KSK, Application category is allowed, but the application is blocked?


I am on the my.kaspersky.com site to setup and administer the Kaspersky Safe Kids settings for my child. If I click on the little bell in the upper right corner of the webpage, in the notifications it says:
"(NAME) tried to open the forbidden application Settings on the MI 8 Lite (Mobile) device. The application category: Tools, the age restriction: 0+."
However, when I click on "Edit Settings" it says that the application is allowed. And yet he still cannot open the application. So if the Tools category is allowed, then why is the application blocked? The specific app name is "Cleaner" which performs the basic device maintenance of cleaning memory, old files, clearing up space, etc.

Hello @Nicolay,

Just wondering how you’re going with this?

Is KSK (Premium) version, on each device, the same

Have you logged the issue with Kaspersky Technical Support?

Please let me know?

Thank you

Reference: When using an iOS device, you can only control access to those applications that are not suitable to a child at a given age.

Hello again @Nicolay,

Additional information:

Android KSK current version is 1.27.0.1591, updated 29th October 2019

iOS KSK current version is 1.38.0, updated 25th Sep 2019

Please ask the Lab if it’s possible to use two different KSK versions? (iOS KSK Parent & Android KSK Child)

In case you do get it working, a previously removed app control feature, has been restored. 

iOS KSK 1.38.025

Thank you. 

I have quite the same issue. I've marked several applications (like whatsapp for example) as available on the blocked device. But anyway those applications do not work when the device is blocked:( Device is Android

Hello @josmi & @Ageroge,
Welcome!
Without knowing which KSK products are installed, and on which operating systems, and if the same products versions are also used for the child/children, it's difficult to analyse and provide specific advice. I've been checking KSK software iused in our setup, which may be completely different to yours.
If you could please provide:
Parent device: opersting system, version, build?
KSK version?
Child device: operating system, version, build?
KSK version?

For the parent, using KSK via the web portal (MyKaspersky account), there are 3 places to manage applications:




Please let us know?
Thanks.

Hello @Nicolay,
Welcome!
In your MyKaspersky account, go to: KSK Applications, Settings, 🔍search for WhatsApp, select Allowed (right hand side of screen), select Available on blocked device (left hand side of screen), select Save


Please let me know if that works?
Also Configuration of Kaspersky Safe Kids on Xiaomi devices may be useful.
Thank you🙏🏽
Hello, I did it and checked on portal it’s not working.

and Xiaomi instructional. I checked it’s not helping.
@FLOOD here is print screen from my device.

and it’s not working on child’s device.

I checked xiaomi once again, this is nothing to do with auto start.

if you @FLOOD from Russia, we can switch if you want.
