A quick check just now confirms that the pricing etc situation regarding VPN/Secure Connection Premium renewals and/or purchases is very similar to the above described regarding Kaspersky Total Security.
Best not to use the renew links, and to not permit an auto renew to go through...
That's not very likely - that the community cannot assist. I asked support to help earlier today, so of course I have an INC number. There's been no answer as of yet.
A solution has been found for the benefit of those interested.
There may be other options, but it's possible to buy a 1 year x3 devices subscription from Amazon UK for £13.99 (about €17.04 tonight) and from Amazon.de for €31.95.
The Amazon order confirmation includes the required activation code, clicking on the days remaining link at the bottom RHS corner of the Kaspersky Total Security application window opens a page where you can with no requirement to directly involve Kaspersky.co.uk directly paste in the new activation code to kick in at the end of the current subscription.
I bought a subscription from Amazon.de because of the risk of post Brexit hassles via Amazon UK (I'm in Ireland) but even so their €31.95 is a long way removed from the highly opportunistic €57.99 that Kaspersky.co.uk are asking via the renewal link that comes up on the application and is offered on their website. That's before considering their forced requirement to accept auto renewal to complete the transaction on the website.
The disgraceful part is that they are discounting the same product by 60% to €23.19 if you dig it up on their website as a first time purchaser.
THIS IS NO WAY TO TREAT A 6 YEAR CUSTOMER!!
There's a lot that's not complimentary that can be said about practices like this - most will no doubt fill in the words for themselves...
This link shows the comparison between the versions/plans.
Also, if you search YouTube for "Kaspersky Plus Review: First Impressions" will at least give you an idea of what that version looks like.
Just looking for clarification. I was just looking at Eugene Kaspersky's twitter page and followed a link to his blog page and according to him there will be three levels of Kaspersky going forward. They will be Standard, Plus and Premium. He indicates that just AV will no longer be available. I see no mention of a Basic plan. It appears the Standard=KIS. Just want to be clear regarding the new offerings.
Ребят я понимаю, что вы работаете в поле законов РФ , но зачем тогда нужен ваш впн еще и платный.(((
На неделе полностью отключилась через вас инста на айфоне. Сегодня уже не работает через любую страну и на андроиде( . Твитер тоже через раз. Очень жаль . С января был с вами. Я так понимаю больше инста через вас работать не будет?
