Spotted an interesting or funny video on TikTok? You can perfectly download it on your mobile, if its creator authorizes it. And, of course, save the ones you’ve posted to keep.

Unlike most other social networks, which want to keep control over everything that passes through their servers, TikTok allows you to download videos published on its platform, leaving users the choice to authorize it or not, thanks to a privacy setting. And while most TikTok members don’t grant this right, there are enough choices among the thousands of videos posted daily to take advantage of this feature. You will be able to keep them on your phone or tablet to share them on other social networks or via messaging. 

Be careful; whether it is your creations or those of other users, the TikTok logo and the user’s nickname are then added to the video to specify its origin. In addition, it is still necessary to respect the rights of Internet users: being able to download a video does not make it free and royalty-free content. It cannot, therefore, be used without the consent of its creator.

How to save your own TikTok videos?

To make sure you don’t lose the videos you created for TikTok, save them to your mobile.

  • Open the TikTok app on your mobile. Your home page loads directly.
  • Tap the Me icon at the bottom right of the interface to view your profile.

How to download videos posted on TikTok?

Did you enjoy a particularly interesting video on TikTok? Do not hesitate to save it on your mobile if its author authorizes it.

  • Launch the TikTok app and scroll down your homepage.
  • When you see a video, you’re interested in, tap Share, represented by a right-pointing arrow to the right of the video.
  • A menu is superimposed on the video. Tap Save Video .
  • A progress bar is displayed on the video while it downloads. When the download is complete, the message Video Saved appears briefly. The video is automatically saved to your usual download folder on your device. You can retrieve it to view, share, or forward it later by opening this folder.
  • If the Save video option is not visible and only the share, duet, or paste options are offered, its author has not authorized the download of his video in his privacy settings. However, you can share it on social networks, for example, on Facebook, from where you can download it (see our practical sheet Downloading videos from Facebook ).
