Want to download a video from TikTok without having their watermark plastered across the screen? Well, now it is really easy thanks to a free TikTok downloader called SnapTik.
I’ll cover everything you need to know about the SnapTik app. Why people use it, the main features and how to use it like a pro! I’ll also look at a few alternatives to SnapTik and see how they measure up.
What is SnapTik?
SnapTik is a free TikTok downloader that can be used to download videos from the TikTok platform without the watermark. SnapTik is available for both Android and iOS devices on mobile and can be used on your Desktop – PC or Laptop.
The app is very easy to use and has a clean, user-friendly interface. Best of all, did I mention it’s free and you don’t even need to register an account or log in to use the downloader? The app makes money to support it by using ads on the screen but to be honest, these are not too distracting and don’t interfere with your downloads.
TikTok will not notify the original user that you have downloaded the video. This means that using SnapTik is totally anonymous because it downloads the videos from TikTok’s servers.
SnapTik can now be used to download videos from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. All for free!
What is SnapTik Used For?
SnapTik is used to download videos from TikTok and remove the watermark at the same time. When you download a video from TikTok either manually or using some TikTok downloaders online, the video will have the TikTok logo on it.
If you just want to view the video later that isn’t a problem. But what about if you want to share it on another platform? SnapTik is popular with creators who want to share their TikTok videos across other sites like Youtube, Twitter or Instagram.
By using the SnapTik app they can do this quickly and easily without the TikTok branding watermark.

How to Download TikTok Videos Without Watermark for FREE
SnapTik is one of the best ways to download TikTok videos without the watermark. One of the best features is that you can use it totally anonymously either on your phone or using the desktop app version. Here is how to use SnapTik:
Using SnapTik – TikTok Video Download on Your PC or Laptop Browser
No app download is required using this method and the download will be saved in your downloads folder.
- Open TikTok and find the video you want to download without the watermark
- Click on the Share button at the bottom
- Select the Copy Link button
- Go to the SnapTik website
- Paste the link you just copied and hit Download
- Your download will only take a few minutes to complete
It’s as easy as that. Downloading on your PC, Mac or Laptop is a good idea if you don’t have a lot of space on your mobile phone.
How to Use the SnapTik App on Android Mobile
First, you’ll need to download and install the SnapTik app from the Play Store. After that it is just like the browser version – here’s what to do:
- Find the TikTok video you want to download
- Get the video link by hitting Share and then Copy Link
- Open the SnapTik app
- Paste the video link and hit Download
- Your download will only take a few minutes
Your downloaded video will be saved in your downloads folder. You can change the download destination in your android phone settings.
SnapTik for iPhone TikTok Video Downloader
Thanks to Apple’s security policies (I hate Apple!) they normally don’t allow you to download Mp4 videos directly onto your iPhone or iPad. But there are 2 workarounds:
On iOS 13 + the Safari browser now has a download manager. It allows you to save downloads from your browser and manage them. You’ll see the downloads in your Files app on your iPhone or iPad. Now you can use SnapTik on an iPhone just like on the web Browser. Here is what you do:
- Select the TikTok video you want to download without the watermark
- Hit Share and Copy Link
- Goto the SnapTik site on your Safari browser
- Paste the link and hit Download
- You’ll see a download icon at the top of the browser click it to open the download folder
- Hold the video to open the menu and tap Share and then Save Video
That’s it, you can now find the downloaded video in your library.
For older versions of iOS you can do this with the help of a download manager app like Documents by Readdle. Here is how this works:
- Download and install Documents 5 by Readdle on your iPhone
- Get the video link as before – Share then Copy Link
- Goto the SnapTik website in your phone browser
- Paste the video link and hit download
- You’ll see the download completed in your browser menu bar
- Click Done
- Your video is in the downloads tab – tap the Eye icon
- Click the three dots icon and select Share and Save Video
That’s it completed. The video will now be in your media folder – without the watermark. Apple does make it a little harder but just give it a go. It isn’t that difficult in the end.
Is It Legal to Download TikTok Videos?
It is legal to download TikTok videos but there are some restrictions and you need to be aware of copyright issues. Not all TikToks can be downloaded as video creators can stop downloads in their settings when uploading content.
Obviously, if you are the creator of the video you are free to use an app like SnapTik to remove the watermark and share anywhere else you like.
You will not get into trouble for downloading videos just to watch them yourself later. Where problems may arise is when you share downloaded videos on other platforms or upload them to TikTok as your own.
TikTok’s community guidelines state that you aren’t permitted to “share, post or upload content that infringes copyright, intellectual property rights or trademark rights”.
It’s a copyright violation to plagiarize someone else’s material and present it as your own. This is why all movies on TikTok have a watermark.
Did you know that it is possible to have your TikTok account hacked and others can see everything you do on the app? I have a guide covering how to hack TikTok covering legal ways to do this. Have a read – it’s good to know what you are up against.
