Kaspersky will pull the plug on the VPN in Russia very soon

Kaspersky is one of the best known brands in the field of antivirus, so much so that it can be considered a historical brand. In the security suites offered to users, the company also includes its own VPN, known as Kaspersky Secure Connection, a product that can also be purchased separately from the antivirus.

In the coming weeks, however, Kaspersky Secure Connection will no longer be marketed in the territory of the Russian Federation. This is the decision made by the company and communicated through the Russian version of its official blog. However, the operation will be gradual and the paid version of Kaspersky's VPN will remain available for purchase on both the official website and the app stores until December 2022.

Russian customers who already have an active subscription, will be able to continue to use the virtual private network service until the next deadline, which however will not go beyond the end of 2023.
