When you create an awesome video for TikTok, it’s only natural to want to share it on other platforms like YouTube Shorts or Instagram Reels. Why go through the hassle of recreating content when you’ve already got something that’s a hit?

But here’s the catch: social media platforms don’t like content from their competitors. If you try to export your video, it will come with a watermark, and if you post it elsewhere, the algorithms will push it down, and you’ll get little to no reach or engagement.

So, how do you fix this catch-22? Well, you can still cross-post your content if you know these hacks for removing a TikTok watermark.



The Best Ways for Removing TikTok Watermarks

Want to share your TikTok videos to other platforms and repurpose content with ease? Discover four practical ways to remove TikTok watermarks.

1. Use Third-Party TikTok Watermark Remover Apps

Third-party apps can be a real game-changer when removing TikTok watermarks. These apps simplify the process, making it easy and quick for creators to remove the TikTok logo.

The best watermark removal apps are:

  • SnapTik: Available in the Google Play or Apple Store or simply on their desktop app.
  • Media.io TikTok Watermark Remover: This is a paid tool with a free trial. It is available as desktop software and an iOS app.

Don’t vibe with these options? There are also countless others in the Apple and Google Play Store.

The good thing is that these apps all generally work the same way. So once you’ve made your decision, here’s how to use a TikTok watermark remover app:

Step 1: Open TikTok and find the TikTok video you want to download. Tap Share and then tap Copy link.

2. Crop the Watermark Out of the Video

If you’re looking for a straightforward, no-fuss method to remove TikTok watermarks, cropping the video is an option. This simple technique requires no special software beyond a basic video editor. Here’s how you can crop out the watermark from your TikTok videos.

Step 1: Download and save your TikTok video to your device. You can do this directly from the TikTok app by tapping the “Save Video” option.

Step 2: Open your video editor. You can use your device’s built-in video editor or any third-party editing app you prefer. Popular options include iMovie, InShot, or CapCut.

Step 3: Crop the video. Import your video from your gallery and locate the crop tool in the editing app. The tool will allow you to trim the edges of the video and remove the TikTok watermark. Be mindful to crop just enough to remove the watermark without losing important content from your video.

Step 4: Save the edited video. Once satisfied with the crop, save the edited video to your device and cross-post it to your other social media platforms, either manually or with Plann’s built-in cross-posting tool.

Good to Know: This method isn’t foolproof and only works if the watermark is in a non-essential area of the frame. If not, you’ll have to explore the other TikTok watermark remover strategies mentioned in this guide.

3. Remove TikTok Watermark With Online Tools and Websites

Not keen on downloading additional apps or fiddling with video editors? Then you’re in luck. There are online tools and websites that give users a convenient way to remove a TikTok watermark in only a few clicks.

Some of the most popular online tools and websites include:

  • Watermarkremover.io: Whether on a mobile device or your computer, the online tool lets you quickly eliminate a TikTok watermark.
  • HitPaw Watermark Remover: A free AI-powered TikTok watermark remover tool available on Windows and Mac.

Both websites are easy to use. Here’s a step-by-step guide to getting started.

Step 1: Copy and paste the URL of your TikTok video into an online tool like HitPaw.

Step 2: Click the Download button to save the non-watermark TikTok video file to your device.

Step 3: Re-share it on your other social media accounts.

Good to Know: If you’re planning out your content and using a tool like Plann, you can drag and drop your videos straight into your calendar from your desktop. Once that’s done, you can bulk schedule your content to auto-post and use the AI caption writer to break free of writer’s block.

4. Video Editing Software

Do you already have an Adobe Premiere Pro subscription or want more control over your video edits? Advanced video editing software is another method for removing TikTok watermarks.

While these tools come with powerful and precise editing features, they’re not cheap. The high price tag isn’t worth it if you only use them to remove watermarks. But if you plan to use them for all your editing needs, then it makes sense.

Here’s a detailed guide to help you remove TikTok watermarks using Adobe Premiere Pro.

Step 1: Open Adobe Premiere Pro and create a new project. Go to “File”> “Import” and select the TikTok video you want to edit. Alternatively, you can drag and drop the video file into the Project panel. You will need to first download and save the TikTok videos to your computer.

Step 2: Drag the imported video from the Project panel to the Timeline to create a new sequence. Ensure the sequence settings match the video’s resolution and frame rate.

Step 3: Right-click on the video clip in the Timeline and select “Duplicate.” This will create a copy of the video layer on top of the original.

Step 4: Select the duplicated video layer. Go to the “Effects” panel and search for the “Crop” effect. Drag the Crop effect onto the duplicated video layer in the Timeline. In the “Effect Controls” panel, adjust the Crop settings to remove the area of the video with the watermark. This will likely involve cropping from the bottom and right sides. Be careful not to crop out important parts of the video.

If cropping alone doesn’t remove the TikTok watermark or affects the video’s appearance, you can blur the remaining watermark area.

Step 5: Select the original video layer. Go to the “Effects” panel and search for the “Gaussian Blur” effect. Drag the Gaussian Blur effect onto the original video layer in the Timeline. In the “Effect Controls” panel, use the Pen tool to create a mask around the watermark area. Adjust the mask feathering to blend the blur seamlessly. Increase the blurriness value until the TikTok watermark is obscured.

Step 6: Adjust the opacity of the duplicated layer to blend it with the original layer. This can help smooth out any visible transitions caused by cropping or blurring.

Step 7: Once you’re satisfied with the edits, go to “File”> “Export”> “Media.” Choose the desired export settings, ensuring the resolution, frame rate, and format match your requirements. Click “Export” to save the final, watermark-free video to your device.
