  1. Apparently I can not register from Europe (using the USA site). Also when I enter that site, sometimes I can't because it says the site is not secure. Edit: I found an even better deal on amazon.co.uk by Kaspersky Lab: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kaspersky-Total-Security-Devices-Android/dp/B01LEI1BKE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503163420&sr=8-1&keywords=kaspersky%2Btotal%2Bsecurity%2Bmulti%2Bdevice&th=1 10 devices for 26 pounds. Can someone confirm to me that this can be used in The Netherlands and whether this is the multi-device license? I am looking to use it on PC's, android smartphone, android tablet, windows tablet, iphone and ipad.
  2. Some websites that I visit, are apparently not secure (no https). So whenever I want to create an account/change password or login, it says "this connection is not secure... ". Apparently, any password filles in could potentially be stolen. My question is if I could use KPM to work around it. Can I use KPM to create a secure password then just somehow enter that without having to type it, and will this stop people from being able to steal the password (as I am not typing it)? And an even more important question, if I log into KPM from that "insecure" site, can they potentially get access to my KPM vault?
  3. VPN and NordVPN

    I would like to know how to setup KTS and malwarebytes 3.1.2 to use NordVPN effectively without interverence too.
  4. I have KTS and NordVPN. Is there any merit in purchasing Kaspersky Secure Connection? Also after reading about the Hotspot Shield fiasco I think I am better off with NordVPN. Additional question: Is there a VPN in KTS? If so, how do I turn it off so that it doesn't intervene with my NordVPN?
  5. Chrome Sync & Password Manager

    On-screen keyboard: - Open on-screen keyboard by typing ctrl+alt+shift+p - Show quick launch icon in data entry fields Secure keyboard input: - Enable secure keyboard input All 3 are enabled. When I click on "edit categories", all are enabled except for "Internet communication media" I don't really know what "secure keyboard input has been enabled" means, but it still doesn't show up in Chrome. Need to look into how to use KPM correctly.
  6. I have "autoplay" turned off. I would like to scan my external harddrives before connecting to them. I usually scan with Kaspersky Total Security first, then scan it again with Malwarebytes. Do I have to wait till KTS scan is finished or can I run both (KTS & Malwarebytes) at the same time without having them intervene with eachother?
  7. Is there any chance that Kaspersky works more optimally if I download it from my own country? I.e. maybe it is designed that way to scan for more threats prevalent in your own country? Since I don't know anything about these stuff, I probably wouldn't find out if it is working optimally or not after I purchase the USA version so trying to be sure of it before I purchase it.
  8. So does that mean I can get my Kaspersky Total Security from the USA site if I live in The Netherlands and am going to use it in The Netherlands?
  9. I found this website where you can purchase Kaspersky at an incredibly low price. However, the products offered (such as Total Security for 10 devices), are not found on the official Kaspersky site. Also, it says you can buy Kaspersky for 5 devices for merely $49.99. I would like to know if this is legit or a phishing site. If it's the latter, please help me find out if I was exposed to any virusses/malware by entering the site. https://usa.kaspersky.com/home-security?affiliate=CJ_NAM&PID=2210202&utm_source=CJ&utm_medium=affiliate&CAMPAIGN=CJ50005487
  10. Does Kaspersky Total Security detect and scan for malware too or is it purely an anti-virus?
  11. Chrome Sync & Password Manager

    Merci for your answer. I installed the extensions on both of the links. Everytime I want to log into i.e. my google account on firefox, it says " secure keyboard input has been enabled " in the box where I need to fill in my password. However, it doesn't say this on Chrome. Why is this so? KPM seems to be working on Chrome. There's a little key next to the password box, if I click on it, I can choose between different e-mail addresses, and if I click on the right one, the password is filled in automatically. However, after I log in, there's a small window in my browser saying: "Do you want Google Chrome to save your password for this site?". Does this pop-up belong to KPM or is this solely Chrome? If its' the latter... do you recommend to answer "no" if I want better security?
  12. I have searched the web but still got none the wiser. I am using Kaspersky Total Security, would it increase my security to add an anti-malware such as Malwarebytes 3 or Emsisoft? I am afraid that these programs will intervene with each other, as they state that they have live protection, and Kaspersky Total Security does too. I read somewhere that Kaspersky Total Security's live protection is purely anti-virus, and that of malwarebytes or Emsisoft's live protection are purely anti-malware. Is that correct? And if so, does it matter which Malwarebytes or Emsisoft version I download? Cause I think their different versions might have like an anti-virus included in it, but I can't make that out from their website. Thank you in advance.
  13. I installed Kaspersky's password manager and it asked me if I wanted to import the passwords of Firefox into it. I didn't have Chrome installed at that time so it didn't give me the option to import Chrome. However, I installed Chrome afterwards. How do I set it up now so that Kaspersky's password manager is connected to Chrome? Also important note: Chrome asked me if I want to turn on Chrome Sync etc. after I installed Kaspersky's password manager, I clicked "undo". Was this wise to increase my security? And will Kaspersky's password manager still work even though I turned this off? Because, whenever I want to enter my password on Firefox, it says " secure keyboard input has been enabled ", however it doesn't say this when I want to enter a password on Chrome.
