How Do I Save a TikTok Video to My Camera Roll Without Posting It?

If you are an avid TikTok user, you might have come across some videos that you want to save to your camera roll but without posting them on the app. TikTok is a great platform for creating and sharing short videos with your friends and followers, but sometimes you might want to keep a video for personal use. In this article, we will explore how to save a TikTok video to your camera roll without posting it.

Method 1: Using the TikTok App

  • Open the TikTok app on your phone and find the video you want to save.
  • Tap on the share icon (the arrow pointing right) located on the right side of the screen.
  • Select “Save Video” from the list of options.
  • The video will now be saved to your camera roll.

Note: This method only works if the user who posted the video has enabled downloads for their videos. If downloads are not allowed, you won’t see the “Save Video” option.

Method 2: Using a Screen Recorder

If you can’t download a TikTok video using method 1, you can use a screen recorder app to record it while playing on your device. Here’s how:

  • Download a screen recording app from your app store. Some popular ones include AZ Screen Recorder, DU Recorder, and Screen Recorder & Video Editor.
  • Open both TikTok and the screen recording app.
  • Start playing the TikTok video that you want to save.
  • In the screen recording app, tap on “Record”.
  • The video will now start recording with audio in real-time as it plays on your device.
  • Once done, stop recording and save it as a video file in your phone’s gallery.


Saving a TikTok video to your camera roll without posting it is a simple process that can be done using the TikTok app or a screen recorder. However, it’s important to respect the creators’ wishes and not post their content without their permission.

Make sure to check if downloads are allowed or ask for permission before downloading or sharing someone else’s video. Happy TikToking!
