Kaspersky Lab has shared the sad news – the Kaspersky Secure Connection VPN application will no longer be available on the Russian market.
As the developers note, the shutdown of the product in Russia will take place in stages in order to “reduce inconvenience for current users to a minimum.”
The paid version of Kaspersky Secure Connection will be on sale until the end of December 2022. If the user purchased the application and activated it (in the personal account on my.kaspersky.com), then it will continue to work until the license or current subscription expires (for most users, this is one year).
The free version of Kaspersky Secure Connection will be available until November 15, 2022. After this period, it will no longer be possible to use the free version in Russia.
The situation is completely similar with Kaspersky Secure Connection, which is part of various integrated solutions for home users. For example, if a user has Kaspersky Total Security installed and a subscription to Kaspersky Secure Connection is paid for, then the VPN application will work until the subscription to it expires. If you do not have a paid subscription or license for Kaspersky Secure Connection, the application will stop working on November 15th.
As emphasized by the company, changes in the operation of Kaspersky Secure Connection will not affect any other countries except Russia. For users outside of Russia, the set of available features and VPN servers will not change.
