    Can you download Tik Toks?

    Have you seen a TikTok video that you would like to get your hands on, but don’t know how?

    In this blog post we are going to share the steps to download a TikTok video.

    TikTok makes it easy to download videos. In fact, unlike other social media platforms, TikTok has built-in functionality that allows you to access videos that the creators have made available in a few steps. Also, you don’t need to have a TikTok account to download videos. Just download and install the app and follow the instructions below.

    A word of warning:

    While we share how to download a video, it is important that you understand that online content may be protected by copyright law. This means that unless the content (including videos downloaded from TikTok) is expressly authorized under the Creative Commons license, it is subject to copyright.

    TikTok videos fall into two categories:

    Free downloadable videos. These are public videos.
    Videos protected by the creators. Private or protected videos cannot be downloaded through TikTok. Instead, we’ll show you how to download them using a third-party tool.

    How to download free videos from TikTok
    There are two ways to download free videos from TikTok. Both methods apply to Android and iOS devices. The first method is:

    First, find the video of your choice.

    Then access the video by tapping it.

     

    When the video starts playing, touch and hold your finger. TikTok will present you with three options.

     

    Tap the Record Video option.

    Depending on your phone and operating system, you can select the location to save the video.

     

    However, most phones should give you the option to save the video to your device or send it via email. The video can be emailed as a workaround if you cannot save the video to your phone right away.

    The second method is to use the Share icon.

    Once you have found your video, tap the Share icon.

     

    Your phone will display a popup with a set of options. Press the Record Video button and your video will download to your Downloads or Video folder, depending on your phone and operating system settings.

     

    How to download protected videos
    Protected videos cannot be downloaded through the TikTok app. This is due to the fact that video creators have chosen to disable this feature for a specific video.

    Although a protected video does not appear to be downloadable, there is a way to access and save it to your phone.

    Download protected videos to Android
    If you have an Android smartphone, visit Google Play Store and search for “Video downloaded for TikTok”.

    You will be presented with many options.

    Select the application you prefer to download and install on your phone. In our example, we used Avalon Infotech’s “Video Downloader for Tik Tok”.

    Then find the video of your choice and click on the Share icon.

    When you see options on how to share the video, scroll from right to left until you find the Copy link button and touch it to copy the link.

    Then paste the link into the TikTok downloader and hit the Download button.

    Then the app downloads the video and saves it to your phone.

    To download a protected video from TikTok, first download Total Files.

    Download total number of files

    Total files is a file manager in the cloud that will provide us with the functionality we need to save the video file.

    Then locate the video of your choice.

    Once you have found your video, tap the Share icon, then find and tap the Copy link button.

    With the copied link ready, open your browser, open Total Files, click the Globe icon, paste the copied link into the URL bar and visit it.

    Then play the video. The video will play in full screen mode.
