FAQs about Downloading TikTok Video Without Posting

Can I Save TikTok Videos Before Posting?

If you want to save TikTok video before posting, the only method you can try is by recording it. Otherwise, you need to publish the video privately like how the article introduces without posting to the public. However, these methods will all add watermarks to the TikTok video. If you need a watermark-free TikTok download, the best way is by using the professional TikTok downloader, VideoHunter TikTok Downloader.

Why Can't I Find My TikTok Drafts?

Unlike the published TikTok videos, which would be saved to TikTok servers directly, the TikTok video drafts can only be saved locally on your devices before they are posted to TikTok servers.

Therefore, when you have switched the devices or you have cleaned up all the local data of the TikTok app, the drafts will also be deleted unexpectedly. So if you want the TikTok videos to be accessible no matter what devices you are using, you’d better post them as private videos first.
