How Do You Save a Private Video to Your Camera Roll From Instagram?

Do you have a favorite private video on Instagram that you want to save to your camera roll? Unfortunately, Instagram doesn’t offer a built-in feature for downloading private videos.

But don’t worry, there are still ways to save them to your phone. In this tutorial, we’ll explore different methods to save a private video to your camera roll from Instagram.

Method 1: Using Screen Recording

Step 1: Open the Instagram app and navigate to the private video that you want to save.

Step 2: Swipe up from the bottom of your iPhone screen to open the control center.

Step 3: Tap on the screen recording icon (a circle inside a circle) and wait for the countdown of three seconds.

Step 4: Once the countdown is over, start playing the video. The screen recording will capture everything on your screen, including audio.

Step 5: When the video ends, stop the screen recording by tapping on the red status bar at the top of your screen. You can also stop it from control center by tapping on the record icon again.

Step 6: The recorded video will be saved in your camera roll. You can edit or trim it as per your preference.

Note: This method only works for videos that are less than three minutes long. Also, be sure not to violate any copyright laws when using this method.

Method 2: Using a Third-Party App

If you’re not comfortable using screen recording or if you want a better-quality video, then there are third-party apps available that allow you to download private videos from Instagram. Here’s how:

Step 1: Download and install a third-party app like “Video Downloader for Instagram” from the App Store.

Step 2: Open the Instagram app and navigate to the private video that you want to save.

Step 3: Tap on the three dots at the top right corner of the video and select “Copy Link”.

Step 4: Open the third-party app and paste the link into the search bar.

Step 5: The app will automatically detect and download the video. Once it’s done, you can save it to your camera roll or share it with others.

Note: Be cautious when using third-party apps as they may compromise your privacy. Always read reviews and check for any red flags before downloading any app.

Method 3: Requesting Video from Sender

If you don’t want to use any third-party apps or screen recording, then you can request the sender of the private video to share it with you. Here’s how:

Step 1: Direct message (DM) the sender of the private video and request them to send it to you via email or other means.

Step 2: Once they send you the video, download it on your computer or phone.

Step 3: Transfer it to your camera roll through AirDrop, iTunes, or other file-sharing methods.

In Conclusion

Saving a private video from Instagram can be tricky, but by following one of these methods, you can easily download them onto your camera roll. Whether using screen recording or a third-party app, make sure that you’re not violating any copyright laws. Happy downloading!
