In 2010, if someone claimed a video app that only lets you upload videos no longer than a minute will become the new sensation, you’d probably dismiss the claim as stupid. However, here we are today, creating one-minute videos to become the new TikTok sensation.
One of the primary reasons TikTok quickly became famous was because its videos are easy to share. While I’d think twice before downloading and sharing a 10-minute YouTube video with friends, I’ll happily download ten interesting one-minute TikToks to post on my WhatsApp status.
However, the annoying watermark on TikTok videos isn’t for everyone. Sometimes, you only want a clean and reusable video to post on another platform without losing your editing. If that’s the case, this article will show how to download TikTok videos without watermark.
How to Download TikTok Videos without Watermark
There are several ways to remove the watermark from TikTok videos before or after downloading. The one you choose should depend on the purpose of the video after downloading. It’s crucial to understand the pros and cons of each method, as well as how to carry them out effectively.
The most popular way to download a TikTok without having to deal with a watermark is by using a TikTok video downloader. They are usually based on the web, and they let you access any TikTok video without the watermark, as long as you have the URL to the video.
An alternative way is by removing the watermark after downloading the video. Unless you can’t access any other website or app apart from TikTok, avoid using this method. It could mess up your video totally unless you have some insane video editing skills to do it yourself manually.
With that being said, here are the two different steps to download TikTok videos and how to go about them.
- 1. Using a TikTok Video Downloader
If you’ve ever tried to download a video from YouTube on a desktop, you should already know how an online video downloader works. Basically, you get the link of the video you’re trying to download, plug it into the downloader tool, and sit back as it generates the download link for the video.
When trying to download a TikTok video without the watermark, a video downloader is your best bet. Since most downloaders don’t remove the watermark after the fact, you should be able to get a clear video without artifacts where the watermark was removed.
However, it’s essential to note that a video downloader can only remove the watermark for the said account. For example, if you reposted a video that already has a watermark, this method can only remove the second one and not the first.
With that said, it’s time to jump into the steps required to remove watermarks using a video downloader. As explained earlier, a tutorial would be unnecessary if you’ve once used downloaders for different platforms, but I’ll assume you haven’t for this article.
With that said, here are the steps required to download TikTok videos without watermarking using an online TikTok video downloader.
• Find an online TikTok video downloader and open it on your website.

• Get the link to the video you want to download.
After finding a suitable downloader that removes the TikTok watermark, it’s time to get the URL that links to the video. That’s usually easy to get, given that the way to share a TikTok is by sharing the link.
To get the link, navigate to the video you’re trying to download on the TikTok app and tap on the share icon. This should bring up a list of sharing options; select “Copy Link” to copy the URL for the video.
• Enter the link on the video downloader and download the video without a watermark.
After getting the video link, you can navigate back to the online TikTok downloader website. All of them will have an input box where you can enter the link to a video and a button that lets you search for the video. Simply paste the link you copied earlier and hit the enter button to bring up the video.
You should see an option to let you download the video without a watermark. Sometimes, the video may refuse to show up. If that happens, it usually means that they set the video to not be downloadable, even from the TikTok app.
If the video is downloadable, however, click on the download button and you’ll have a TikTok video without the annoying watermark, ready to be shared on any social platform.
2. Remove the Watermark After Downloading the Video
If you’ve already downloaded the TikTok video, the only option available is removing the watermark using external tools. There are some tools created to remove unwanted watermarks from videos, and you can use any of them to edit the video after downloading.
