  1. Replace your license key for free to be able to use all the features of Dr.Web Security Space.

    ! A Dr.Web Anti-virus license key can also be used for Dr.Web Security Space, however the components included in Dr.Web Security Space but absent in Dr.Web Anti-virus will not work with the Dr.Web Anti-virus license key.

    The list of these components:

    • Spider Gate
    • Device access rules
    • Parental Control
    • Data Loss Prevention

    To replace your key, sign in to your My Dr.Web Portal for home (from the program or via the site), and in the active license's area of the License section—Active, click on Upgrade to Dr.Web Security Space free of charge.

    An email containing your new serial number and key file will be sent to your address. Read it.

    ! Free key replacement is only possible for Dr.Web Anti-virus licenses or Dr.Web Anti-virus + cryptographer licenses that are active (valid) at the moment of replacement.

    ! If you have a license that has not yet been activated, just register it—you'll be given a Dr.Web Security Space license immediately and you won't need to replace it.

    ! Once your license is replaced, your old license will be blocked in 30 days.
