Downloading videos on TikTok is very simple. Its own founder, Zhang Yiming, is aware of the success of the videos that make up the social network, so he makes it very easy for you to download them.
And how do downloads influence the success of TikTok? For each download made of a video, it is considered that it will be shared, which benefits the virality of the video and the dissemination of TikTok content to users who are not yet on the social network. Thanks to this, among other factors, in 2021 the application had one billion users and presence in more than 150 countries, being the platform with the most traffic last year.
In today’s article we explain how to download videos on TikTok through different ways, but first you must know the copyright policy.
Copyright when downloading videos on TikTok
It is important to know that each user who publishes content on TikTok owns the copyright of their videos, although the social network can use them for commercial purposes and monetize them for its own benefit.
That is why, when downloading videos on TikTok, the content of other users cannot be distributed, transmitted, re-broadcast, exhibited, sold, licensed or exploited without the consent of its owner. If the purpose of the download is for commercial purposes, it is important that you first contact the owner of the video for distribution.
The TikTok APP itself offers you a very simple way to download any video. Next, we detail step by step how to do it.
How to download videos using the APP itself
Tik Tok allows you to download your own videos and those of other users. The social network generates a composition made up of the video clip and a clip with the username and profile picture. In this way, you can see who owns that video at all times, as well as the TikTok watermark.
We explain how to download TikTok videos through the APP itself:
- Choose the video you want to download, either your own or another user’s.
- Click the “Share” arrow, located at the bottom right of the screen.
- Click “Save Video.”
- The wait is about 30 seconds or more, depending on the size of the video. Once the download is complete, the video will be on your device’s camera roll.
Download videos through Instagram
TikTok allows you to share your videos through other social networks, such as Instagram, from which you can then download the videos. We explain step by step how to do it:
- Choose the video you want to download.
- Tap the “Share” arrow in the bottom right.
- Choose the Instagram icon.
- A window will open asking if you want to share the video in “Story” or “News”. Tap “History”.
