Plex sent out an email informing about a data breach. Click here to read it.

If you follow the instructions, and select Sign out connected devices after password change. when changing the password, your server will be removed from Plex. You need to reclaim the server. I've read others saying that they can reclaim it via Settings, but no such option existing on my Plex environment.

With some help from other users posting solutions, one worked for me. Below are the instructions. This guide is only for those that the Plex way of claiming via the web interface does not work.

Writing a guide like this takes time and effort; tips are appreciated.

This guide is only for when Plex Media Server is installed via App Center.
