    You need to download TikTok videos on Android, you are in the right place? The Tiktok app is becoming more and more popular, with millions of users sharing funny videos on this platform every day. With so much fun content, it can become difficult to track and remember every video you see. Here's why you might want to download TikTok videos on Android, so you can see it later or watch it with your friends.




    To prevent this from happening, you can download your favorite TikTok videos to your Android device to review them later. This article will walk you through three different methods on how to download TikTok videos.

    What is TikTok?

    What is that TikTok (also known as Douyin in China) is one of the most popular and particularly interesting social media applications of the moment today. It allows users to create and share short videos along with songs, effects or audio clips, all in a synchronized environment.

    Through this tutorial we will see how to download TikTok videos on android, even those we are not allowed to download.


    I state that the authors are the sole owners of their videos. Any unauthorized download of content and / or infringement of intellectual property rights is the sole responsibility of the user.

    Download videos directly from the app

    The TikTok app allows users to download videos to their device's internal storage. That said, you can only download videos from users who have enabled the “save” option in the audience settings.

    If the user disables this option and makes the profile private, you will not find the “Save video” button. The only way to find out is to try and download the video directly. Here's how to do it:



    1. Launch the TikTok app on your Android device.
    2. Select the desired video.
    3. Tap the "Share" icon on the right side of the screen.
    4. Look for the "Save Video" option. If you can't find it, the user sets the profile to private.
    5. Tap "Save Video" if you see it.

    Go on. If you use TikTok, you can choose who can download your videos. This first method is therefore based on the application itself and through which you can only download videos whose authors have allowed users to download. I'm talking about free download videos.


    To download a video with free download, it's very simple, choose the video to download, in the video menu tap Share and then choose Save video in the submenu and the video will be downloaded to your device.

    Or to do even earlier, tap and hold the video and choose Save video and it will automatically download to your phone. However, if you don't see the Save Video option, be aware that the author of the video doesn't want you to download it. To work around this limit, use methods 2 or 3.

    The video will be stored in your Android gallery on the TikTok album. The main drawback of the direct download option is that the TikTok watermark will remain on the video when you download it. You can download a video without the watermark, but you need to use a third-party app. Read the section below to find out more.



    How to Download TikTok Videos on Android via TikTok Downloader

    To get started, download and install the app TikTok Downloader from the Play Store. TikTok Downloader is a free application that integrates seamlessly with the Android sharing menu so you can quickly download a video.


    To download a video, from the video menu, tap Share. In the submenu that appears, choose Other to enter the Android sharing menu.

    Once in the Android sharing menu, choose TikTok Downloader and the video starts downloading via the TikTok Downloader application.

    You can also choose the option Copy link after tapping the share icon. Once the link is copied, open the TikTok Downloader application, paste the link and tap on DOWNLOAD to download the video from TikTok.

    How to Download TikTok Videos on Android via TopSaver

    This method is similar to the second and is proposed as an alternative to this one. It is also based on a third party application, TopSaver, which is possible download from the Play Store.


    Like TikTok Downloader, TopSaver also integrates with Android's sharing menu so you can instantly download a video. To do this, tap on the video Share, in the submenu that appears, choose Other.

    In the Android share menu, choose TopSaver, once the application is open, touch SAVE IN FAVORITES VIDEO to download the video. You can also copy the video link and paste it into the application to start the download.

    Besides download videos from the app, TopSaver also allows you to save certain elements of the video such as the featured image, hashtags or even copy the descriptive text.

    With these three methods, it is now very easy download any video from the TikTok social network which is gaining popularity day by day.

    Be careful with downloaded videos

    As you can see, anyone can download TikTok videos even if you manage your profile as private. Thanks to third-party apps, your videos could end up in the internal memory of any device regardless of your settings.


    You should always be careful that some content may be subject to abuse. Therefore, think twice before uploading a video to avoid any inconvenient situation. What kind of videos do you like on TikTok? Do you save them for a laugh?
