  • View your liked TikTok videos. All of your liked videos can be viewed on your TikTok profile under the heart icon.
  • Save TikTok videos. You can save TikTok videos to your device and organize them by folder or file name.
  • Repost TikToks on another platform. Once you download a TikTok video, you can upload it to Twitter, Facebook, and other platforms.
  • Bookmark your favorite TikToks. If you’re using TikTok without a TikTok account, you can save videos by using your browser’s bookmark feature.
