Filmora Activation and Account: How to reactivate Filmora9 after I change or format my computer

Don't know how to reactivate Filmora9 after you changed or formatted your computer? 

You can follow the steps below:

1. First, please make sure your new computer is running the same OS platform with the previous one as Filmora9 licenses cannot be used between different operating systems.

You may also need to sign in on the official Filmora website( ) and unlink your account from your old device if you purchase an individual license (this path is Plans&Products-Product Plans-Manage Device-Remove Device).
