Is KMSPico Safe To Use? How to Download Real KMSPico

KMSPico, a Key Management System for Microsoft products like Windows and Office, is used to activate them. Microsoft uses MAK (Multiple Activation Keys), and KMS (Key Management System), to activate Windows on a volume basis. KMS keys can be used for phoning back Microsoft’s servers. Clients using MAK keys activate Windows by calling to KMS server in their local network instead of Microsoft’s kmspico activator.

KMSPico replaces your original key with a volume licensed key. It creates a local instance of KMS server to avoid online activation. Your Windows system will not be able to connect to an online server. Instead, it will continue to use the replaced license key and treat it as the original key. This is why Windows Defender and antivirus detect KMSPico virus.

However, this does not necessarily mean that all KMSPico on the internet are genuine and virus-free. Your computer will become infected if you download a fake KMSPico.

I also tried KMSPico, and it worked flawlessly on my Windows 10 machine. But now I use HWID Windows Activator. Windows Defender works well in Windows 10, so I don’t need any antivirus apps.

One site claims that KMSPico is dangerous (like this), but this is only true if you install a fake activator. Below are links to official KMSPico Windows activators.

How do I download the Official KMSPico

Many websites claim to be the official site for KMSPico, but there is no official site. You can find KMSPico and other KMS Tools on an official forum (here’s the forum ). To view and download from that forum, you may need to register. You will find the direct download link to KMSPico as well as other KMS Tools in the bottom of this post.

Before extracting files, disable your firewall and antivirus. These files may be deleted by your antivirus without you being informed. Make sure to read the readme.txt file. It contains all details about activation and installation.

How do I activate Windows?

  1. Uninstall any previous version first; run UnInstall_Service.cmd with admin rights
  2. Run KMSpico_setup.exe
  3. It is easy to install
  4. Done

[UPDATE HWID Windows activator]

KMSPico has not been updated in a while. It is still functional. Another Windows activator (HWID), that doesn’t detect viruses, is available. It is completely clean and can be uninstalled after being used. Unlike KMSPico, you don’t need to reactivate Windows after a certain period. This article will explain how to activate Windows 10 with a Digital License (HWID).

Before installing, please read the instructions. Most activating with HWID mode is compatible with Normal Windows 10 Home/Pro. It will also require an internet connection.
