How To Download TikTok Without Watermarks?
Whenever you download TikTok, there is a watermark at the bottom of the downloaded video. The purpose of this watermark for user copyright protection is to show the original owner of the video so no one can repost it without crediting the original owner.
To Save Tiktok Without A Watermark Following Methods Can Be Used:
1. Crop It Out:
It is a simple method. But when you crop the video it will change the video aspect ratio. If you reshare it, then there will be a black margin line around the video boundaries.
Check it, if your content is important near the boundaries of the video, then this option is not suitable for you.
In case, If you don’t care about it, then you can follow the underlying steps.
- Open the video in the Photos App.
- Click on the edit option present in the top right corner
- Then click on the crop option that will appear in the menu located at the bottom
- Pinch and zoom the video, edit the video dimensions, and remove the watermark by cropping.
- You need to crop more than one area of your video because the watermark bounces around.
- Click on the done option.
Here your work is saved.
2. Use The Editing App
You can use video editing tools and readily get the without watermark videos.
- Download the editing app from the app store
- Open the app, and these apps might be free or have a paid subscription.
- Open the TikTok video and look for the target videos that you want to save without a watermark.
- Click on the share motion and then click on the Copy link option
- Open the watermark remover app, and your video will automatically move into the app.
- You can download the video without a watermark by clicking on the save option.
- Moreover, you can even edit videos, add captions, hashtags them, and even schedule your video to be posted to social media platforms.
One thing that needs to keep in mind is that these kinds of apps are not affiliated with TikTok. All of these are unsanctioned apps that are designed to remove the watermark. All of the apps are not good at removing watermarks. So you need to read the particular app review before using it. It is a safe play. Because of the popularity of TikTok, scammers are also bombarding from everywhere who make fake promises.
3. Use The Video Editing Tool
You can also try the video editing tools, which will change the watermarks into pixels. You can also add the graphic on the watermark by using the video.
This method is a bit complicated, and different tools have different qualities for editing videos. So you need to read the review and do the free trial before choosing the video editing app.
Import the targeted TikTok video from the camera roll
- Choose the Remove watermark option from the menu.
- Pinch and zoom to highlight the area where the watermark is present
- Most tools remove watermarks one at a time. Because these watermarks bounce all around. You need to do this in steps
- Save the video, again open the edited video and choose the area where watermarks are present
- Again Save the TikTok video.
- Then move the edited TikTok video to your Camera Roll.
Actually, These apps replaced the pixels of watermarks with other pixels, giving a little blurry effect. It cannot be noticeable if your sides have a solid background. So check the quality of your video before saving and uploading it.
Many websites can help you to download the video without a watermark.
- Find the TikTok video that you want to save.

- Open the web browser and open the website
- Paste the copied link or URL in the search box
- Wait a few seconds and then click on the Download option in MP4
- Click on the no watermark option.
All these websites do not provide the ‘without watermark’ option, you need to figure it out yourself. Several websites download the video. Some of them I have discussed above like MusicalDown.com, SnapTik, TikMate, and TikFast, etc.
These websites are not affiliated with TikTok and might stop working if TikTok brings changes in their algorithm in the future.
There is a variety of amazing content that compels the audience to save TikTok videos on their Camera roll. You can save it easily by clicking on the save option from the menu of the TikTok video. But what about the TikTok videos without a saving option?
Yeah, this is the real problem that I have discussed in different aspects. You can choose one method that suits you best.
And for the third-party apps, you need to be a little observant in this case to choose the best tool that can really help you instead of wasting your time and money. So before choosing, read the review and try the free trial if they have the subscription offer.
