But, considering that this is your first time using it, or any similar platform we are going to dig a bit deeper into the process of backing up your videos. As we said, there’s no reason to panic. It is easy to use, the same way our explanation is going to be to understand. As our good British friends would put it – a piece of cake. Or, if you love Americans more – a walk in the park. But, you might be into doing things the old-fashioned way, so we’re going to dig into that below.

How Does It work?


First of all, it all starts with the TikTok application. From there, you only need to follow the instructions we have below. Of course, we’re going to say it once again, it’s better to do it with software designed for it, but if you love going the longer route, like Roronoa Zoro, that’s fine with us. Let’s walk these steps together.

Step 1 – This is the easy one. Log in. Open TikTok application. Once the app is open, the profile page appears. You’re in the right place.

Step 2 – Just like most of the apps we have today, the settings bar hides behind the three-dotted mystery wheel. When in TikTok click on them. They’re located in the same place as any other app. Upper right corner.

Step 3 – You need to select the option that reads “account.” When this is done, click on the “Privacy” section. This is where things get interesting. Don’t stop now. Wake up your inner Indiana Jones and start exploring.

Step 4 – Downloading your data start with the access to the “personalization and data’ section of the drop-down menu. Don’t forget to click download. It won’t start without that one click. The most important one so far.

Step 5 – In the download area, the app is going to be very selective in terms of what you can take down. They will allow you to take the most, but it’s still listed what’s for grabs. “Request data file” is the next step.


Step 6 – Step six is where you’ll know that you’re on the right path. It will show you the pending request icon, which will stand next to the “download data” tab.

Step 7 – Your data becomes backed up in the seventh step. This is where the app itself is going to notify you that the wanted action is ready and that it commenced. This message is the final key to the whole ordeal. The message you received needs to be clicked on and your download starts only then.

Step 8 –  The security matters to TikTok owners, and all of us of course, so when the link is clicked, you’ll be logged off. Verification of the ownership by entering the user name and password once again will be required. This is where you’ll receive a ZIP file that needs to be stored.

Step 9 – After clicking download you’ll see that the named file is being saved in the upper right corner of your phone.  This action will also get you back to the page where you started. Check Step 1.

Step 10 – The down-pointed arrow in the upper right corner will be your sign that the backing up process is over. It will be downloaded and stored on your smartphone.



Yes, ten steps might be too much for doing this one simple task but that’s life for you. Luckily we have given you other options, so it is up to you which way you want to go.  As far as we’re concerned, we know what we would choose. But that’s a story for another article.
