After a license key is added, you can find it in the list of reserved keys in the Kaspersky Internet Security: License window:


In this case, remove the expired key, and your new key indicated under the Reserve section will be added as an active license. The license will be used from the moment of Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac activation.
