How to Download Video from Facebook to iPhone

Have you ever struggled with sharing a Facebook video outside the platform? Whether you want to share Facebook videos on other platforms, or you want to download and watch a video offline, Facebook doesn’t allow you to do so directly. Although there is a save option for Facebook videos, it only saves the videos to your Facebook profile.

Simple Method to Download Facebook Videos

Fortunately, there is a fairly simple method to download a video from Facebook. And once you’ve downloaded it, you can repurpose the video for other social media platforms by making minor edits using InVideo’s online video editor. While you can download a Facebook video following the steps below, make sure to cite the original source if you re-use someone’s content. This article will also tell you how to download private videos from Facebook. But make sure to check copyright information, and take necessary permissions if you re-use any content for commercial purposes.

Downloading to Your iPhone

  1. Get Started: Before you can download a Facebook video to your iPhone, you’ll need to download the Firefox browser from the app store. This is because Safari and Chrome may not allow you to download the video via browser, depending on your device. Once you have downloaded the browser, follow these steps.
  2. Copy the Link: Launch Facebook, find the video you wish to download, click on the share button below the video post, and select ‘copy link’ from the options.
  3. Use Open Firefox, navigate to, paste the copied link, and hit download. You’ll be presented with several download options; choose your preferred quality and long press the video, then tap ‘download now’.
