How can I install and activate Kaspersky Security for Mac in Parallels Desktop 11?

  • Parallels Desktop 11 for Mac Standard Edition


Note: A Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac license will only work with Kaspersky antivirus on a Mac. To activate Kaspersky in Windows, please purchase a Kaspersky Internet Security for Windows license.


Start Parallels Desktop, click on Parallels Desktop and choose Install Antivirus for Mac to start installation of the software that will protect your Mac.


The download and installation process will start. Enter your Mac user password to confirm the process.


Activation of a trial copy

After installation you will have a 30-day complimentary license for Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac.


Activation with a commercial key

Start Kaspersky Internet Security and click on the key sign to get to the license details.


If you have a license key, enter it under Application Activation and click Activate.

If you do not have a commercial license, you can purchase a subscription renewal using in-product purchase option in the same window.

Note: if you purchase a license from the previous Kaspersky antivirus version installed on your Mac, the license will not work with the new Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac installation. Please purchase a license from the new Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac installation to ensure it is compatible with the latest Kaspersky software installed on your Mac.



Enter the license, which you purchased and click Activate button to activate the application.
