    Not sure if it has always worked this way, but added a key code today to KTS with 16 days left. Thought it would use up the remaining 16 days, but didn't. Interesting.

    Maybe it could be from me changing the product from a 5 user, 1 year key to a 1 user, 1 year key. IDK.

    Think it is working as intended. Doesn't show RENEW on home screen anymore, but still shows 16 days. Didn't know Kaspersky doesn't consume unused days when new keys are inserted...maybe new policy?

    I seen this happen on a computer at home, but this was a different beast: This was going from KIS to KTS, and I had the same screen as you did @motox781

    Also there's this: https://usa.kaspersky.com/renewal-upgrade-faq

    If I renew my product before it expires, will I lose time remaining on my subscription?

    If you renew the subscription on your existing product, you will not lose remaining days on your old subscription. However, you will receive a new license, subscription and activation code (also called license key). Your new activation code will automatically load the additional days left from your old subscription.


    However if you are not careful in what you click on, you can lose your remaining days:

    If I upgrade to a different Kaspersky product, will my existing subscription carry over?

    If you choose to buy a new product through the Kaspersky Lab eStore, you are buying a brand new license and subscription to a Kaspersky product. Any remaining subscription days on your old product will not carry over to your new product.


    So if you are careful in how you do things and what you click on, you won't lose anything.

    I added 1 key to my ongoing KIS 2018 an it worked good, the application saying that the added key will be activated when the actual one expires.
