Downloading videos from Instagram is against Instagram’s terms of service, as it violates copyright and privacy rights of the content creator. It’s important to respect intellectual property and the rights of others. Instagram provides the option to save posts within the app for personal use, but downloading and distributing them without permission is not permitted.
If you want to save an Instagram video for personal use, you can use the built-in save feature within the Instagram app. Here’s how you can do it:
- Open the Instagram app on your mobile device.
- Find the video you want to save and open it.
- Below the video, you’ll see a bookmark icon (a ribbon-shaped icon) or a download icon (a downward arrow). Tap on the icon to save the video.
- The video will be saved to your “Saved” collection, which can be accessed by tapping on your profile and selecting the menu icon (three horizontal lines). From there, you’ll find the “Saved” option.
Remember, saving videos for personal use within the Instagram app is different from downloading and distributing them outside the app without permission, which is against the terms of service.
