Having TikTok videos in your camera roll lets you share your favorite videos with your friends directly without opening the link first. In most cases, TikTok offers a built-in download button for videos, making it easy for you to save your wanted videos. However, the download option is not always available. Some videos don't enable downloads directly. In that case, you'll need a few more steps to save TikTok videos to your camera roll. 

If you have no idea how to save videos with/without a download button, check our how-to instructions below. 

A word of caution: According to TikTok's Terms of Service, TikTok doesn't allow any behavior that infringes copyright. The use of copyrighted content of others without proper authorization or legally valid reason may lead to a violation of TikTok's policies.

Part 1. Save TikTok Videos to Camera Roll Without the Download Button

"How do I save a TikTok that doesn't have a Save option?" is an ongoing hot topic among TikTok users. There are two options for you to get the job done. The first option is via screen record, but this will save all the icons, captions, and tags, which might not be what you want. Another option is to use a third-party downloader, either web-based or mobile-based (Android & iOS). And here, we've rounded up a list of downloaders for you to save TikTok videos. 

1. Using EaseUS Video Downloader

EaseUS Video Downloader is a renowned video downloader that can help you save TikTok videos in MP4 or MP3 format. You can even use it to convert TikTok videos into GIFs if needed. But this feature only supports videos within 20 seconds. Unlike other video downloaders that only allow you to save one video at a time, this program supports batch downloads. 

To download a TikTok video, you need to open TikTok.com on your computer and find the video you wish to download. Click the "Share" icon in the bottom right corner, and click "Copy link." Once you've prepared the URL, you can finish the rest of the steps by following the instruction below. 

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Video Downloader on your computer and choose "Quick Search" from the left sidebar. Copy the URL of the TikTok in the address box and click "Search." Then, the video will appear with a "Download" button, click it to proceed.
