If you forgot to save the raw footage before you uploaded a video to TikTok, there’s a website you can use to remove the TikTok watermark and retrieve the original footage. Here’s everything you need to know.

TikTok continues to grow in popularity, and as more and more people begin to join the social media platform and start sharing content, more popular videos are making their way off TikTok and going viral on other apps like Twitter.

You likely will have seen a good few TikToks popping up on your feed whether you have an account on the app or not, and you’ll always be able to tell that it’s a TikTok clip because it will have a watermark of its logo along with the original poster’s username appear periodically throughout the video.

This feature is in place to prevent content from getting stolen and reposted to other accounts or sites without credit, but it can sometimes prove to be an issue for individual creators.

TikTok has become a hub for all sorts of viral trends.

If you wanted to keep the original video you filmed before you uploaded it to TikTok, but forgot to save the unedited footage, you may find that you can’t separate the watermark from the clip when you download a TikTok to your camera roll.

However, some users are finding success with a website called snap.tik that allows them to download TikToks without watermarks – although they are not in any way affiliated with TikTok.

Note: It is not recommended that you use this app to remove watermarks from other people’s videos, as the watermark feature is there to ensure that original creators are always credited for their work.

How to download TikToks without a watermark

  1. First, you need to get the link from the TikTok you want to download. Open the app, click the share button on your chosen video, and tap the blue ‘Copy Link’ button to copy the link.
  2. Head to the snap.tik website.
  3. Paste the link to your chosen TikTok, then click the green button.
  4. Use one of the download links to get the video.

As this website is not affiliated with TikTok, you are essentially using it at your own risk, but it is an option if you’re trying to get back an un-watermarked video that you forgot to save.
