People from across the globe post thousands of videos and photos on Instagram and sometimes , people find some videos interesting and want to save lots of it to look at them in future on their smartphone. Well, if you’re looking to download any video from an Instagram post or story then sadly, Instagram only allows users to save lots of their own Stories which are recorded using the app itself.
However, there’s a workaround that extracts the video content from the actual Instagram post and saves it to the smartphone’s storage.
To do that, there are two ways — using online website tools and using third-party apps. Now, we understand that employing a third-party app isn’t the simplest solution here thanks to the privacy concern, so during this how-to guide, we’ll ask the online tools.
Now, there are several websites that allow users to download Instagram videos. You’ll simply Google them and use any of them you like.
Steps to follow:
1. Open the Instagram App
2. Scroll and check for any video post you would like to download
3. Now, tap on the three vertical dots from the right corner of the post and choose Copy link option
4. Then, head to the website and paste the link and click on the download button
Do note that the online tools only allow downloading videos from the accounts that aren’t private.
If you’re willing to download any Instagram video downloading app on your smartphone then head to Play Store and download any app you would like , and paste the post link to download. If we had to recommend one,we would recommend the Instagram video downloader by Instaoffline. This particular web-app supports the download of all Instagram content, including private videos.
