Enabling and disabling the use of Kaspersky Security Network in Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud

To obtain access to KSN, computers and mobile devices must be connected to the Internet.

You can enable or disable KSN separately for each available version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac.

For Android devices and iOS devices, KSN is always enabled by default. KSN is enabled on mobile devices at the moment you accept the End User License Agreement when installing the security application. The use of KSN can be disabled directly on mobile devices by you or the device owners.

The default status of the KSN use depends on whether or not you accepted the terms of the KSN Statement when you first opened Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console. If you accepted the KSN Statement, the use of KSN is enabled. If you did not accept the KSN Statement, the use of KSN is disabled.

To enable the use of KSN:

  1. In Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console, select the Settings section.

    The General settings of Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud page is displayed.

  2. Under Use of Kaspersky Security Network, do one of the following:
    • Click the Prepare distribution packages link.

      This link is displayed if you refused to accept the KSN Statements for all available versions of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac when you first opened Kaspersky Endpoint Security Cloud Management Console.

      You are redirected to the Distribution packages section where you can prepare the required package. The package preparation includes accepting the KSN Statement. No further actions are required.

    • Click the Settings link.

      This link is displayed if you have accepted the KSN Statement for at least one available version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows or Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac.

      The Kaspersky Security Network page is displayed. The page allows you to enable or disable the use of KSN separately for each available version of Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Windows and Kaspersky Endpoint Security for Mac.

  3. If the use of KSN for the required Kaspersky security application version is disabled, click the Enable KSN button.

    The Kaspersky Security Network for <Kaspersky security application name> (<Kaspersky security application version>) window is displayed.

  4. Carefully read the KSN Statement.
  5. Select the check box under the text of the KSN Statement.
  6. Click the I accept the terms button.

    If you click the I decline button, KSN will not be enabled.

    The Kaspersky Security Network for <Kaspersky security application name> (<Kaspersky security application version>) window closes.

The use of KSN for the selected Kaspersky security application version is enabled. The Enable KSN button is replaced with the Disable KSN button.
