ABOUT TRUSTED APPLICATIONS MODE
In Kaspersky Internet Security, you can create on your computer a secure environment, called Trusted Applications
mode, in which only trusted applications are allowed to start. Trusted Applications mode is useful if you use a stable set
of well-known applications and you do not need to frequently run new unknown applications downloaded from the
Internet. When running in Trusted Applications mode, Kaspersky Internet Security blocks all applications that have not
been classified as trusted by Kaspersky Lab. The decision on whether to trust an application can be made based on
information received from Kaspersky Security Network, details of the application's digital signature, and the trust level of
the installer and the source of the application download.
Trusted Applications mode has the following features and limitations:
To use Trusted Applications mode, make sure that all of the following protection components are enabled:
Application Control, File Anti-Virus, and System Watcher. If any of these components stops running, Trusted
Applications mode is disabled.
Trusted Applications mode may be unavailable if system files are located on partitions of a hard drive with a
non-NTFS file system.
Trusted Applications mode may be missing or unavailable in the current version of Kaspersky Internet Security.
The availability of Trusted Applications mode in Kaspersky Internet Security depends on your region and service
provider. If you need Trusted Applications mode, you are recommended to ask for it when purchasing the
application.
If Trusted Applications mode is supported in your version of Kaspersky Internet Security but is not currently
available, it may become available after you update the databases and application software modules (see the
section "Updating databases and application software modules" on page 41). After the databases and
application software modules are updated, you can configure the run mode for unknown applications and
modules.
Trusted Applications mode can be enabled automatically or manually. When Trusted Applications mode is enabled
manually, all applications installed on the computer are assigned Trusted status. Applications installed after Trusted
Application mode was enabled are not assigned Trusted status and are processed according to general rules of
Application Control.
You can also enable Trusted Applications mode manually after Kaspersky Internet Security analyzes the operating
system and installed applications. If Kaspersky Internet Security analysis reveals that unknown applications are installed
on the computer, enabling Trusted Applications mode is not recommended.
Trusted Applications mode is enabled automatically if Kaspersky Internet Security analysis of the operating system and
installed applications reveals that mostly trusted applications are used on the computer.
When Trusted Applications mode is enabled, Kaspersky Internet Security may block applications that have not been
recognized as trusted. You can allow such applications to be run (see the section "Controlling application activity on the
computer and on the network" on page 81) if you use any, and then enable Trusted Applications mode.
