Forgotten Parental Control Password

11 posts in this topic

I've got KIS 8.0.0.454 on my computer.

 

I set up parental control a few weeks ago to protect my 13 year old son. I've since realised that some sites which I think aren't too bad (maybe the odd bit of bad language, but otherwise nothing) are blocked. When I try to change the settings in parental control I'm asked for the password. Unfortunately I didn't write it down and have since forgotten it :-/

 

Is there a way of resetting the password?

 

Thanks,

Kevin

I've just found another post which says I have to re-install :-/ OK, so be it.

Next generation product will allow higher parental control customization.

Woo Hoo! It worked (wipes beads of sweat from his brow...) Thanks for the help! I've now set up separate passwords for Teenager and Adult. Hopefully we'll all be happy now. Thanks again.

Just curious. Did you reinstall or reset the password?

You can reset the password. There is a KB about it somewhere.

Kind of makes me laugh though how Easy it is to remove the Parental Control Password, it means that any under-aged kid can get this zip file and undo what his/her parents set up.

 

Or am I wrong at How easy it is to the removal of this password.

You need an Administrative Credentials on the machine to do anything. Also Kaspersky protects itself via Self-Defense from unathorized modifications :)

Good to know... I will pass this on to friends and relatives who have KIS and Kids to set up a Seperate account for this reason.

 

thanks for your time and info. :cb_punk:
