How to deactivate your Serato licenses to use on another computer

Some products require a licence to be activated before use. If the product licence (registered to your Serato.com user account) is not activated on your computer you will not be able to use it. For more information on getting Serato DJ activated, check out this article on Activating Serato DJ. Serato products can be activated on up to two computers (one main computer and one backup computer). If you have exceeded your maximum activations or are swapping computers you may find yourself needing to deactivate your licence(s).

Deactivating Licences
If you find yourself in one of these situations:
  • You just got a new laptop and you have already used your 2 activations up on your current computers
  • You’re selling your laptop to someone and want to make sure you don’t give away your licenses with it
  • You need to replace the hard drive in your computer and need to deactivate your license.

You will need to deactivate your licence on any current computers before activating again on your new computer.

You can manage your licences through the MY SERATO window
  1. Navigate to the My Serato button in the bottom right corner of the Serato DJ Screen. 
  2. Click on it to show the sidebar
  3. Then Click the Expansion packs and Activations button
  4. Follow the prompts to log in to your Serato.com account with your email and password.
  5. Click on the My Products tab. Under the My Products tab you can see the option to Deactivate all products to move to another machine. This will deactivate any products you have activated on this certain computer.
  6. Once pressed this and you have successfully deactivated you can now activate the products on another computer by repeating steps 1-5.
