With every plan you get Technical Support via phone, live chat and email, as well as free 24/7 online sales support (an example of what you can use this for is enquiries into different plans, helping you choose which one you need). One great addition is the 30-day, “no questions asked” money-back guarantee on all online purchases, allowing you to be more confident in purchasing Kaspersky products. Tech support isn’t available around the clock, only from 5AM to 11PM eastern with no support on calendar holidays. Our attempts to reach support went very smoothly, we were instantly connected to a tech expert from Kaspersky on request which would have been fantastic during an emergency.

Kaspersky’s ‘Internet Security’, is their middle tier of protection, it offers a year of protection for 1 device for $59.95. I Kaspersky provide real-time and proactive protection of your computer. In other words, it’s a fairly simple piece of software, but it does it’s intended job well. For an extra $5, you can upgrade to their ‘Internet Security’ software, which builds on the basic, entry-level product with additions like financial transaction protection, webcam protection, anti-spyware measures and some great privacy features. There is the option to upgrade once more for yet another $10, which adds another set of really useful features. The upgrades are most definitely worth the money. Overall, Kaspersky’s products are good value for money.

Subscription expired. Used their uninstall program. Says its uninstalled , I can not access it. But the symbol remains in top tool bar and when I tried to install avest software, it would not finish, said " must uninstall Kaspersky first. I cannot find it or remove. Called their support & they said th could & would , then put HARD SELl on me to by there 3 5 7 or Lifetime software for $600,$800,$900, or$1000. Never removed the software, transfer me to senior tech, just gave different phone #,then disconnected me !! Do Not buy this! Worse then used car sales!

Kaspersky total security for MAC. What a waste of numerous days of frustration and cost not only for the subscription. DO NOT BUY THIS. it would not allow me to use my external dvd drive (3rd party and/or Apple super drive). It completely blocked it. Kaspersky support were a waste of time sending me pages of directions to send them updates as to how "I RESOLVED IT" THOUGH IT DID NOT WORK. Apple support tried to resolve issue but even with their awesome help they could not assist. After removing Kaspersky from MACBOOK mojave the external hard drive worked normally without a hitch. Whereas Kaspersky for windows works just fine, as when you plug in a device a pop up occurs asking to allow and then you can proceed without any difficulty. After 20 days I WILL NOT BE USING KASPERSKY ANY FURTHER AND HAVE SUBSCRIBED TO Bit defender. My external hard drive works fine with Bit Defender. Kaspersky chat support line is a waste of time, don't waste your time.

Best antivirus available..I've tried the others, They don't compare to the quality and security of Kaspersky..The others will allow third party data mining software to scan your files in return of compensation for access to your PC. Kaspersky has kept my companies virus free for 12 years ..I can't say that for Norton , Mcafee and AVG and Trend Micro everyone of those have failed to provide the protection needed , even in their premium packages.

Kaspersky free antivirus quick scan is quick and easy to use.

Floyd - 02/25/2019

Their privacy policy is disgusting. Basically they can spy on you all day and all night and sell the data to whomever they like. If you have Kaspersky on your machine, Kaspersky is the virus.

Lynn - 02/20/2019

I had to uninstall this. It changed settings and VPN kept announcing (incorrectly) my phone wasn't a secure connection and switched off mobile data, which in effect won't let my laptop hotspot to my phone.

Prevents FreeNAS (iXsystems) GUI from working on all functions.

Ok anti-viruses that as far as my experience goes works but does slow down you're computer considerably and may have other issues. I can't truly recommend it although it's not a scam like "Total AV" or "Scan Guard", but even then still keep an eye out for any UN-wanted problems that may occur. Also the same goes for Avira but Avira is better.

Wally - 11/19/2018

Very reliable and secure. For years I had and it never let my PC down. Buying it every year on X-Mas sales - very cheap. Big advantage is you can release PC memory by switching Kaspersky off when no need and you are working online.

John P - 11/19/2017

slows down the computer, constantly scanning and updating. Had it for years but am going to through in the towel. I also have some concerns that this is a Russian company. I believe i read something several months ago that the government had some issues with them. Have at least 3/4 of the year left, not to concerned about loosing $$. just want the speed back on my machine

Priscilla - 11/06/2017

I dont feel safe using this anymore. it changing my computer settings, so confusing and messing up my picture files. are they doing their job protecting our computer or spying on things we love to do. I hate this i cannot wait until it over.

Antonio Moreno - 10/29/2017

I think Kaspersky is a good antivirus but I need better deal.

ron - 10/24/2017

i like it and it works very well for me. all the other ones slow down the computers i tryed them all and didnt like them at all.

noel leiner - 10/05/2017

The program is solid. I have used it for a while a do not see any problems. Easy to use and it has caught some problems that have come up

Helen Miller - 05/28/2017

Have used Kaspersky since 2011 back then Sales and Service were excellent, not so now, won't be purchasing the product again due to lack of real service. I think it has all been outsourced.......
