Do you want to reuse your TikTok videos on other social media platforms, but don’t like the TikTok watermark? The tutorial below will show you how to remove the watermark from TikTok videos.
Most of us don’t have enough time in a lifetime to create unique content for each of the different social media platforms.
One way you can save time is to reuse videos that you’ve made on TikTok on other platforms.
But when you download a TikTok video to your phone, you’ll find that it has a pretty obvious watermark. A watermark that switches from the upper left-hand side to the lower right-hand side about halfway through your video.

But first, the legal stuff
Sorry to put a temporary halt to our fun, but I want to make sure you don’t accidentally get yourself into trouble.
In the U.S., copyright exists upon creation of a work (video, music, audio, etc.). While there are plenty of caveats to this, unless you are pretty well versed in U.S. copyright law, I’d steer away from other people’s work when sharing TikTok videos on other platforms.
If you’re posting TikTok videos to other social media sites, I’d stick to the TikToks that only use videos or photos that you shot. If you added someone else’s music or audio to the TikTok video, you can remove the audio when you load the video to the other platforms.
Okay, enough legal stuff. Here’s how to remove the watermark from TikTok videos!
Option 1: Crop out the watermark
The first option to remove the TikTok watermark is to crop it out of the screen. Because the watermark appears in two places, you’ll have to crop out the outer box of the video.
That means any video or text in that section will be cropped-out.
To use the crop-out function, you’ll probably need a third-party app. Search your phone’s app store for “video crop”.
Option 2: Blur the watermark
If you don’t want to crop out a portion of your video, a second option is to blur the watermark. By blurring it, the watermark is essentially removed from the video.
You’ll likely need another third-party app for this action. To find this type of app, search your phone’s app store for “watermark remover”.
Because the watermark switches locations during the video, you’ll have to remove the watermark in two places. The watermark will switch from the upper left-hand side to the lower right-hand side about halfway through the video.
Option 3: Cover the watermark with something else
A third option for removing the TikTok watermark is to simply cover it with something else, like text or a graphic.
For example, if you’re uploading the TikTok video to IG Reels, you can add text and graphics once the video is loaded to Instagram. Any new text or graphics that you add to the video in IG Reels will cover the watermark.
Just remember that you’ll need to cover the watermark in two places (upper left-hand side and lower right-hand side).
I hope this article on how to remove the watermark from TikTok videos helps you to save time (and maybe even a little of your sanity!). Good luck in the social media world!
