The steps to turn off the ‘save video’ option on TikTok mirror those of turning it on, following the same step-by-step process. The only distinction is choosing ‘OFF’ instead of ‘ON.’ If you’re familiar with enabling the save video option, switching it off shouldn’t be challenging.

Step 1: Open TikTok & tap on ‘Me’

Launch the TikTok application and sign in to your account.

Once logged in, click on the “Me” icon located in the bottom right corner of the initial screen.

Select the icon to access your TikTok profile page.

Step 2: Tap on the ‘Three-dots’ icon & ‘Privacy and safety’ 

On your profile page, various sections will be visible.

At the top, you’ll find an icon with three dots. Tap on it to reveal the “Settings” tab.

Within the “Account” options, choose “Privacy and safety” to access its settings.

Step 3: Tap ‘Allow your videos to be downloaded’ & select ‘On’

Under the “Privacy and safety” tab, locate the setting titled “Allow your videos to be downloaded,” usually set to “On.”

Click on this option to access the “Allow your videos to be downloaded” tab.

Once there, choose “Off” to disable this feature.
