Note: Apart from blurring faces in video clips, sometimes you may want to hide personal info like contact info or telephone number when recording a video tutorial. Click here to check how I hid the personal information in the recorded video tutorial.

1 Import your video to the program

After running Wondershare Filmora and entering the main editing interface by clicking "New Project", click the Import button to browse the file folder on your computer and load to the program or directly drag and drop your video to the media library. Filmora supports almost all video and audio formats. After finishing file loading, drag and drop the file to Video Timeline. Then you can start to blur your face in the video.

2 Blur face in the video in a click with Face-off

If you want to add more fun to the video, double click the Face-off filter in the timeline, and you can also pick up other funny marks to hide the face in the video as you like. When the above operations are completed, you can preview the video by hitting the Play button, clicking OK to save the editing, and returning to the main interface.

Adding the Face-off effect to video adds motion blur, which means the face will be blurred even when people are moving. Besides the Face-off blurring effect, you can also add the Mosaic effect to blur a still face.

3 Blur face in the video in a click with Mosaic [Optional]

Blurring faces with the Mosaic effect is the perfect solution when people in the video are not moving. To apply the Mosaic effect to blur the face or an object in the video, switch to the Mosaic tab in the Utility window and drag the Mosaic filter to the timeline (above the main video track). You will see a yellow box in the viewer.

Drag the yellow box to the target face and adjust its size to hide the face completely. You can also change the percentage slider of the Mosaic effect to get the proper blurring result. You can add many Mosaic products to the video as you like by clicking the Add button.

4 Preview and save the video

You've successfully blurred out part of a picture or the target face. Now click Export to export your finished video. You can select a video format to save to desktop or publish it directly on YouTube or Vimeo in the output window. Also, you can burn a DVD from your video in minutes with excellent quality. By far, you are done with blurring video. If you want to make your video funnier except face blurring, Filmora also lets you use PIP effects.
