Hello @Nina.sarlak79
Welcome!

  • :a: We've checked with Technical Support, there are no regional restrictions, so the software can be purchased in the UK and applied in Iran, however, there may be local restrictions/policies regarding the use of software, that we're not aware of, so, you must do as much research as possible, in case there is. 
  • Also, KSK is managed by the parent, via their MyKaspersky account, if you're in the role of the parent, that would mean being available to respond to KSK alerts & requests; if there's a time difference between UK & Iran, would that be an issue? 
  1. No, the original Kaspersky Parental Control had content filtering, that could be configured by the parent, however, KSK has a Safe Kids feature - see below - that works in a similar fashion, but, is controlled by Kaspersky, not the parent, not configurable & not the same. 
  2. Block websites - yes.
  3. Block/restrict apps - yes. 
  4. Block app stores - yes. 
  5. Block social media, KSK monitors (not blocks) Facebook & VK, any other social media, you'd need to configure thru apps or websites. 
  6. Porn, Safe kids feature works for this. 
  7. Dating sites, you'd need to apply specific exclusions.
  8. Facebook, as above, you would need to apply a specific block. 
  9. YouTube, KSK cannot block individual videos or channels, however, KSK has Safe Search on YouTube - see below. 
  10. Block by Category - yes. 
  11. Block by Schedule - yes. 
  12. Block by Device use time - yes. 
  • We recommend installing KSK Free, test the software, make sure it meets your expectations before investing any $. 
  • Note, there are some Androids, that have features that appear to be able to cause KSK to be disabled, if your brother has an Android, please let us know the name/manufacturer so we can guide you? 

Safe search: this feature lets you exclude inappropriate content from search results on Bing, Google, Mail.ru, Yahoo!, and Yandex.
On Android, iOS, and Windows devices, Kaspersky Safe Kids will additionally block the following website categories from appearing in search results: Adult content; Alcohol, tobacco, narcotics; Profanity, obscenity; Extremism, racism.
Safe Search on YouTube: this feature is available for: Windows app 1.0.5.4096 and later, Android app 1.33.0.0 and later, iOS app 1.48.0.0 and later.
Notify about searches on restricted themes: get notifications if your child searches for information on restricted subject matter (for example, alcohol, tobacco, or adult content).

Hello @Nina.sarlak79
You’re most welcome:relaxed: !

Yes, KSK a single Premium license can be applied, up to maximum number of child profiles connected to the account is 100; the maximum number of devices connected to the account is 500, on:

Windows → at the bottom of this document set, there’s a small KSK video, it shows some helpful information & points out which KSK features are not available or different (for iOS) - important!

Android

MAC

iOS → KSK works differently on iOS, make sure you read the documentation carefully to understand the differences. 

Please do install KSK Premium Trial, fully test so you’re confident with the software, before buying. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Thank you so much for your time and your promptly respond. 

Hi,

I am so sorry for the desturbance.

I have perchased a safe kid premium and an email was sent to me that contains the activation code and the download and installation link, but when I click on the download link, it takes me to the main page of Kaspersky website and there is no option to download. 

And I have another question please  is it possible to change my email address because I wrote my email address when I was filling the form out and I had to write my brother's email address which I perchased this safe kid for him and I need to chang the email address. 

I do appreciate if you could help me on this matters please.

Hello @Nina.sarlak79

No problem, we’re happy to help:relaxed: 

May we know, is your brother doing the actual install of KSK or is there another family member who will help? 

Before you change (your brother’s email address), to install KSK, on your brother’s devices, he will need to use “an” email address that is the “parent” email address, that’s fine for the install, however, if KSK is being installed to help you manage your brother’s use of the internet, it will be necessary to change the email address after the install, otherwise he will have a controlling/parent account.

Please let us know so we can guide you? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Hi 

Thanks ,yes my brother will do the actual installation of KSK.  

But before he does I wanted to make sure that the installation link will work and as I mentioned before I  recived an email which was sent to me that contains the activation code and the download and installation link, but when I click on the download link, it takes me to the main page of Kaspersky website  and there is no option  or file to download and install. How can my brother download and install it on target devices ? There were nothing to download.

I just tried to look into it but I couldn't find any thing .

Hello @Nina.sarlak79

Thank you for posting back & the information:ok_hand_tone3:  

Edit additional:  which devices will KSK be installed on? 

We’ve just checked with Kaspersky Technical Support, they can provide you with the installers for KSK/Windows, KSK/Android, KSK/iOS & KSK/MAC

There’s two options, before doing the following, in the MyKaspersky account, add the KSK Activation code

Option 1: use the Kaspersky Middle East website, select KSK 7 day Free Trial, install the software, at the end of the 7 days, when the trial has ended, the stored Activation code will be accepted by the installed KSK software. 

Option 2: use Kaspersky Global website,  select KSK 7 day Free Trial, install the software, at the end of the 7 days, when the trial has ended, the stored Activation code will be accepted by the installed KSK software. 

To change the actual email address, it’s necessary to contact Kaspersky Technical Support, on the Support page, make sure the location is UK, select Application use → image 1, select from available options: Online chat, Phone, log a case via the MyKaspersky account → image 2 & use the Request template → image 3, as a guide: 

 

 

 

 

Please post back with your brother’s birth year, we’ll create some screen prints to help you configure KSK? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Flood:whale: +:whale2:

Hi

I am not sure If I have understood what you mean correctly. So simply he needs to download the app for instance through the Google store for android and install for 7 days trial and then after that 7 days there  is an option to enter the activation code in the same application? And there is no need to do anything else?

Can my brother use this activation code for multiple devices? He has 2 Samsong devices (android) and 1 laptop (windows) . 

And his birthyear is 1970.

Do I have to change the email address first then my brother can add the activation code in the  MyKaspersky of his account? 

Or can I add the activation code before changing the email address?  

I sincerely appreciatey our help.

Hello @Nina.sarlak79

You’re most welcome:relaxed: !

  1. 1970, your brother is 51, KSK is for children born between 2000 & 2021:thinking: & the 16+ age template is quite liberal → images 123
  2. Do not change the email address atm, otherwise, your brother will have to use your email address to access the MyKaspersky account, and, slight correction, you can change the email address, in your MyKaspersky account → image 4; but, you will have to contact Kaspersky Technical Support to change the region settings → image 5
  3. When you do change the email address & take ownership of KSK to manage the app for your brother, make sure to also activate 2 Factor authentication
  4. If you have access to your brothers email address/MyKaspersky account, you can add the activation code now (or, he can) → image 6

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please don’t hesitate to post back if there’s anything that’s not clear?
