Published : November 16, 2022


If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably been using the TikTok app a lot lately.

It’s a lot of fun to make short, funny videos with your friends, and then share them with everyone you know. But what happens when you want to save one of those videos so you can watch it again later? 

You might be surprised to learn that there are a few different ways you can do it. In this article, I’m going to show you how to save a TikTok video to your camera roll using a step-by-step guideline. 

So whether you’re on an iPhone or an Android phone, there’s a way for you to save those videos. Let’s get started!


Step  1 Download Or Update TikTok

Here is the first thing you should do. 

  • Go to the play store or apple store.
  • Download the latest version of Tiktok first.
  • If you have pre-installed it, update it by tapping the “UPDATE” button.

Step 2 Find The Video You’d Like To Save

By now you have the fresh pick in your phone. Time to find the video. This is a simple task. Just scroll down and pick the desired video. 

Step 3 Save The Video

You have your video. Now follow the instruction below:

  • Tap the share icon ( it stays at the bottom of your right) 
  • Press the download icon ( the download icon is placed under the sub-category of the share button, you will see it after pressing the button)
  • Boom! You have saved your video.

Step 4 Find The Video

The aforesaid process is for simply downloading the video. It takes less than 10 seconds. But what if you don’t get the desired video? There are two ways

  • Use the title on the search bar to search.
  • Forgotten the title? No problem, name the song, or the about of the video ( I followed the process to find most of my forgotten videos)

Step 5 Save Videos As A Gif

What if you find; your searched video has no save button? Convert it into GIF mode. Here is how:

  • Tap the share icon.
  • Select “Share As GIF”
  • Let it convert.
  • Now go to your saved photos or videos option.
  • You will find the video is saved in GIF mode. 

Step 6 Use Instagram Story Option:

Sometimes the GIF feature cannot give the real taste. You will miss the aroma of watching the video. This means the chances of stress removal are less.  Here is the trick to enjoy 100% of the video without having the save option in TikTok.

  • Tap the share icon
  • You will find “Instagram story”
  • Tap the button.
  • The video will be in the preview section of your Instagram story.
  • Download the video! 
  • Done!

Step  7 Use Screen Recorder:

One of the easiest and most hassle-free options so far.  Look at the simple process.

  • Go to Play Store or Apple Store
  • Search “ Screen Recorder” 
  • Download one of them.
  • Set up the app. 
  • Start recording your video.
  • You can even edit the video after recording. 

Step 8 Pc Download

All the previous process is for the Android or IOS platform. This section will explain the details about Pc download. 

  • Go to google
  • Type “ Online Tiktok Download”
  • You will find a lot of sites.
  • Pick one
  • Copy your favorite video from the TikTok.
  • Paste it into the URL link of the downloading platform.
  • Click download. Done.



Is Saving TikTok Video Copyright Violation?

It is not a breach of Copyright as long as you are claiming it. There are a lot of scopes to avoid the violation. “Fair Use” policy is the best way to avoid copyright strikes. 

I strongly recommend you to read the “Privacy Policy” Regarding the fair use category of Tiktok before reusing the saved videos. 


Can I Download My Own Videos?

Yes, you can. Follow the instruction to download your own videos from your TikTok Library. 

  • Tap you profile
  • Go to the saved video option.
  • Download the video from saved options. 


Why Cannot I Download Some Of The TikTok Videos?

Tiktok has the option to stop others from downloading the videos. It is for privacy reasons.I don’t prefer anyone to download that type of video even using a screen recorder. I think We should respect the creators. This will help them to create better content


Final Words:

I shared the most working process for dummies with experts. Pretty sure! This will help them to save their time to save the video for curating better content. 

One more thing for all the curators and audiences. Please don’t violate the copyright laws of TikTok. This will stop your content flow.

Not only that, it will demotivate the creators to use the platforms.  Believe it or not! I noticed several creators to leave this platform just for that!
