If you want to download a private or protected video on TikTok, you’ll need to download a third-party tool.

Instagram makes it a bit harder to download someone’s video from the app. You can’t do it natively and will need a third-party app.

• Step 3: Once you’re done, open Instagram and find a Reel you want to download

• Step 4: Tap the three vertical dots next to the video and tap “Copy Link.”

How to Download Instagram Reels Via a Screen Recording

If you don’t want to download a third-party app, use the screen recording method.

Step 1: On your iPhone or iPad, add ‘Screen Recording’ to your ‘Control Centre’ If you do not have this icon, go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Control Center’ -> ‘Customise Controls’ -> ‘Screen Recording’.

Step 2: Open Instagram and find a Reel to download

Step 3: Swipe downwards from the top of the screen to open the Control Centre menu

Step 4: Select the recording icon, and a countdown will start for your screen recording

Step 5: Head back to Instagram and play the Reel

Step 6: Once the video is done, stop the screen recording by tapping the red status bar at the top of your screen

The screen recording will automatically save to your phone, and you can share it on your other social media platforms.

For Android users, you can also use your phone’s built-in screen recorder, or you can download a third-party app like Screen Recorder or Az Screen Recorder from the Google Play Store.
