How to download videos without the TikTok watermark

You’ve probably got TikTok, like a billion other people. You’re probably addicted. Swiping through fast-paced, looping content that runs the gamut from over-used memes to surprising original content is hard to pass up. So much so that the format has been stolen by other services, from Reels on Instagram and Facebook to Snapchat’s Spotlight.
What if you’re a TikTok content maker who wants to share your perfect video elsewhere? Or what if you simply must have a favorite video to keep forever? (You know, for your own personal use, not for profit, so as not to infringe the intellectual property rights of the original maker, because that would be a crappy move on your part.) How do you download that video, and without the TikTok logo watermark dead-center on the video? Here’s how.
Hold down a finger on the video, and in the menu that pops up, tap Save Video at the top. (Note: this only works if the creator marks the video as “Public.” If it’s listed as “Private,” you won’t see the save option.) The video is placed in your phone’s camera roll, and you’ll see options to share the video from there to SMS, Facebook, WhatsApp, or other services.
Method 2
The best bet is to download the video without any watermark in the first place, for free. For this to work, you turn to third-party apps and helper websites, for which you’ll need the URL for the individual TikTok videos.
Musically Down is one of the best helper sites, with a good look and even a concise how-to video. Enter a link for a TikTok video or a song listed on the service, and you’ll get a quick preview, including the video’s title, and options to grab it as an MP4 video or an MP3 audio file.
