There’s no telling how wild TikTok videos can get. Sometimes they’re so creative, funny, or motivating that you want to save them to your personal collection. TikTok already lets users download public videos, with the Save Video option available in the Share menu on both iOS and Android. Videos downloaded using this method (or other conventional methods) usually include dynamic watermarks that might block useful video content and become intrusive at times.
Some users may want to get rid of such unwanted watermarks from downloaded TikTok videos. In this article, we’ll look at a neat trick that allows you to save videos from TikTok without watermark on iPhone.
Note: Some online video downloaders might provide the option to download TikTok videos without watermark, but these tools usually crop the downloaded video along all 4 corners to get rid of the watermark portion of the video.
Though this might not be noticeable all the time, It doesn’t actually solve the purpose. And sometimes, depending on the content of the downloaded video, essential elements along the top and bottom corners might get cropped out.
The videos downloaded using the below method will technically still contain a small TikTok logo at the bottom. But the video is going to be un-cropped, and the watermarked logo is not even noticeable compared to the usual watermarks found in downloaded TikTok videos.
Best way to save TikTok videos on iPhone [No Watermark]
Follow the steps below to download TikTok videos without intrusive watermarks. Note that this trick will only work for videos that have the Save video option available in the Share Menu.
- Launch TikTok on your iPhone.
- Swipe up or search for the video you want to save.
- Tap on the Share button.
- Instead of Save video option, scroll right and choose Live photo option. The live photo will be exported to your Camera Roll in the iOS Photos app.
- Open the Photos app and open the recently exported live photo.
- Tap on the Share button in the bottom left corner and choose Save as Video.
The video will be available in your Camera Roll without any intrusive watermark.
Note: The Android version of TikTok also has the Live Photo option available in the Share Menu. However, your smartphone may not allow you to open a Live Photo directly on the device or convert it to a video like its iOS counterpart. Instead, TikTok has a companion app called TikTok Wall Picture on Android that allows you to set live photos exported from TikTok as live wallpapers.
We’ll let you know if we find a workable solution for downloading TikTok videos without watermark on Android as well. So, keep an eye on this article for updates.
Note: The method described above is meant for users to download TikTok videos for their personal use. If you want to share the downloaded content with others, we recommend that you support the original video creators by crediting them while sharing.
