  • Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac Home Edition
  • Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac Pro 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.


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

Activation after trial

To activate Kaspersky Internet Security for Mac with a commercial license, click on the license information at the bottom of the Kaspersky Internet Security window screen to get to the license details.


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

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

Note: 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 that you purchased and click Activate to activate the application.
