Hey guys, I used Comodo for years and decided I had enough, I want to buy a Kaspersky product and I want to know which one of this products I should buy and if KTS worth the extra money if I'm not going to use the file and password protection anyway? is there any other difference between them? also is it worth to buy an extra copy for my android or malwarebytes mobile is enough?

Thanks, lazy me didn't think to Google it..
So it really is just the file managment tools and password manager?
if it is I should just buy kis because those tools are useless to me.
By the way, if one day I decide to upgrade to KAV or get more licenses can I do it for cheaper or do I need to buy the whole suite all over again?
Last Kaspersky product I used was KAV back in 2004 and it came on a disk with the license included...

The difference KIS<>KTS: check the last 5 features of the list in the link I posted before.

About licences, Kaspersky follows the rule -1/+3, so no problem to use Your license with new version, in fact 2017 version in English is already available: License Compatibility of Kaspersky Lab Products’ Versions
Thanks, I just bought a license for 3 PC's, I can't find an answer for this, if I use this key on my Android does it count as like I used 1 PC out of those 3?
Edit: I bought it from Kaspersky localized website that said PC's but after signing up to Kaspersky website it actually says devices, in any way it was cheaper then buying the Android version separately, thanks everyone for helping my decide.

Usually a typical user will go to Internet Security because of features that primarily focus on protection alongside of saving money.

The number of features does not add more protection at all.

As a long time Kaspersky Internet Security user I would recommend KIS over KTS.Protection and the most important features are available in KIS.
Personally the extra features in KTS(File shredder,password manager,Backup &restore,etc.) are taken care of by way of other programs.
Although nice features there are better third party programs specifically made to handle these features(many are free).
Either one will provide you with top notch security just depends on what you want to spend and if you want all these features packed into one Security program.

Hello
My friends and KTS have installed KIS version and some of them have used.
My experience shows that KTS version has fewer problems than the version is KIS.
KIS version have some problem, you know friends who use both versions.
Only KTS.
Respectfully
