How To Download Facebook Video (W/O Using App & Web)

Want to download a Facebook video but can't get any options on the app? Don't worry; here's how you can easily download any Facebook video without using any app or website.

Sounds crazy! Yeah, but this question must have popped in your mind, is that legal or illegal to use the video or download the video from Facebook.

Yes, but not always, because you can download the video of any creator and use it anywhere, but here's the catch: you need to attribute the creator before posting it somewhere, and there's nothing else to do.

If the video is from a private account, the first thing to know is that it is illegal, and the second is that you will not be able to download the video from the private account because Facebook knows what privacy is but sometimes lacks it. 

Don't worry, that's not your problem; let's see how you can download videos of any public creator from Facebook.

How To Download Facebook Video (Android, iOS)

Step 1: Open the Facebook app.

Open the Facebook app from the app drawer and make sure that app is up-to-date. If you haven't already, please update from the Play Store or App Store.

Step 2: Login With Your Account.

Log in with your account if you haven't logged in earlier. If you're already logged in, follow the next step.

Step 3: Look for the video.

Search for the video you want to download; if you can't find it, look for it in the liked videos section. If you're still having trouble navigating, go to the video history. In that, you will probably find the video.

Step 4: Tap on three dots.

Got the video? Now tap on the three-dot menu option that will appear at the top of the video where the creator's name is written.

Step 5: Tap on the Copy Link Option.

After tapping on the three dots, you will get a copy link option; tap on it. The video link will be copied.

Step 6: Paste the link into your browser.

Now, paste the link into the browser's URL bar, and the Facebook video link that you copied from the FB app will be pasted.

Step 7: Drag the video to download.

After pasting the link into the browser, a page will load where it just shows the video that you want to download. 

Just drag the video around for a while, and an option will pop up; from there, select the download video option. 

As soon as you tap on the download option, the video will start downloading on your smartphone. 

It might take some time to download, as it depends on the video's length.
