Love it or hate it, TikTok seems to be here to stay, with all its weirdness and charm. The app has emerged as the planet’s hottest social networking site and everybody wants a slice of the action, including the biggest celebrities and personalities.
With so many creators on board, some wild, share-worthy videos are inevitably produced by the platform. Of course, TikTok doesn’t mind cross-platform sharing, but for every video published on the web, it places a watermark. This little article could come in handy if you’re irritated with the watermark and are looking to get rid of the watermark for good.
So let’s get to it without further ado!
Where is the watermark located?
TikTok stamps its logo on the top-left corner of every frame, alongside the name of the founder, if you have not already spotted it. The dynamism of the aforementioned logo is what’s more interesting. The logo appears first on the top-left corner, of course, but after a few seconds, it drops down to the bottom right corner.
So, if you’re looking to remove it, make sure you get both the spots.
Why you shouldn’t remove the watermark from TikTok videos?
We agree that as annoying to many, the TikTok logo will come off and it is tempting to get rid of it for good. That doesn’t mean, however that we support or promote eliminating it. You should consider retaining the watermark unless it is your own property that you are attempting to distribute to other sites, as it acts as a way for the artist to get their due credit.
How to remove the TikTok watermark?
If you believe it’s completely fair to get rid of the watermark, you could adopt any (or multiple) of the methods mentioned below to remove the logo.
Crop it out
The best way to extract a brand of TikTok is to crop the portions containing the watermark. Fortunately, the TikTok watermark only appears on the top-left and bottom-corners, which means you can cut to get the desired result either horizontally or vertically. Be sure to correctly pick the cutting areas. So that you don’t take out vital parts of the video unintentionally.
With the help of a video editor, you’ll need to crop the video. On Android and iOS, here’s a list of video editors that can help you out.
You might simply jump online and try to make use of the multitude of websites waiting to serve you if cropping does not seem like the best way to go. MusicallyDown is one such generous website that gets the job done without much fuss. What’s even more awesome is that the website works with both TikTok and its Chinese counterpart Douyin. So, your preference for the Chinese software would never be questioned.
MusicallyDown asks you to paste the link from the video you want to clean in order to delete a watermark. All you have to do to get a link is hit ‘Share’ and pick the ‘Copy Link’ option. Go back to the website, then paste it on the webpage. Now, make sure that the ‘Watermark Allow Video’ option is unchecked. Last, click on the ‘Download’ button to let the website do its job and make the video available for download. Double or triple-check this move as it is the only one.
Get an app for yourself
It’s perfectly normal to opt for a strong app to remove the watermark from pesky TikTok videos with so many powerful handheld devices at our disposal. IOS and Android deliver similar applications in almost all situations, and here too, we can enjoy the same thing.
If you’re on Android, you’ll need to download Remove & Add Watermark from the Google Play Store. It’s a very primitive app, be warned, and might not be as refined as many would like. The functionality does not however, leave much to be desired. Tap on Choose video’ after you open the app and choose ‘Delete watermark.’ Now, choose the video from which you want to remove the watermark, see the preview of the same and hit ‘Save By tapping on the’+’ item, you can add more rectangles or objects.
On iOS, you could achieve the same results with Video Eraser. After downloading the app from the Apple App Store, fire up the app, tap on ‘More,’ and select ‘Crop video to remove watermark.’ As you’d expect, a cropping tool would pop up, with various aspect ratio options. Resize and hit the ‘Export’ button at the top-right corner. Your new video will be saved to the device.
