Found an amazing video on TikTok that you want to download, but do you want to get rid of the watermark? You can use SaveTok to download TikTok videos onto your phone or tablet without a watermark, which is a separate application that you can install on both Android and iOS devices. With most videos, you can just save the video to your gallery, but they are always watermarked, such as in the image below. Downloading TikTok videos without a watermark isn’t possible in the TikTok app itself, but that’s where Savetok comes in.
What is SaveTok exactly?
SaveTok is an application that is affiliated with TikTok or Bytedance in any way, it was developed by Senthil Odayaappan with the sole purpose of saving TikTok videos on your device, without a watermark. Aside from saving the videos, you can also bookmark TikTok profiles with the application, create your own playlists or play your favorite TikTok videos in slow motion. In other words, there’s a lot more functionality than just downloading the clips without the TikTok watermark, but that’s definitely the main use for this app.
Is SaveTok safe?
It’s definitely a good question to ask. After all, when something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. However, SaveTok is absolutely safe and doesn’t do anything fishy, and it is also freely available on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, meaning it has complied with all the (strict) rules that Apple and Google have regarding app policies. The developer, Senthil Odayaappan, is also active on Reddit en regularly engages with the community, and responds quickly to any problems the app might have.
Does SaveTok actually work?
With some of these shady apps you can find on the internet these days, you probably wouldn’t be surprised if apps like these are just full of fake promises. Luckily, there’s no issue at all here, as the app has numerous users and positive reviews. It is also used by more than two million people, so that definitely means the app must be doing something right.
For example, it has received almost 80,000 ratings in the Apple App Store with an average score of 4.6 stars. On Reddit, plenty of users report that the application is actually working fine and as intended. The Google Play Store has an average score of 4 stars, which is a bit lower than its iOS counterpart. However, there was a bug in the Android application which made the processing time to download a lot longer than usual, resulting in some negative reviews. That bug has now been fixed, and recent reviews are back to four and five stars.
So in short, SaveTok does actually work! Saving TikToks without a watermark has never been easier, and you can all do it with the convenience of a single application instead of relying on an online website or service.
Is SaveTok free?
An app that downloads your favorite videos without a watermark that’s safe and actually works, there’s got to be a catch, right? Well, the app is absolutely free to download on both iOS and Android, so there are no worries there. There are also no in-app purchases whatsoever, meaning you can download as many videos without a watermark as you want – whatever TikToks you throw at SaveTok, it’ll take care of all of your requests without dipping into your wallet.
So how does the developer of the app earn money? Exactly the same way TikTok itself does: using advertisements in the app. That means you’ll occasionally see an advertisement when you’re in the SaveTok application, but it’s a small price to pay to finally get those vids downloaded to your device.
How do you use SaveTok?
