Instagram Reels, Story, Explore, IGTV Video and Photo Download Methods

We explained how to download videos and photos of Instagram’s Reels, Story, Explore, IGTV and timeline posts.

Is it legal to download videos and photos on Instagram?

Downloading and publishing all private and personal content of any user over the Internet is completely prohibited in our country. However, there is no objection to downloading personal and non-private videos and photos for general purpose (eg nature photo or comedy video).

Using the content that is free to download for commercial purposes may cause problems as it may be subject to license. You can use the content you download personally. However, in order to share them over the internet, it is necessary to know whether the content is a licensing issue. No license can be registered for any content shared on Instagram, which means that all content can be used freely. In other words, since we mentioned above, it does not cause any problem to share the content that is free to download in our country on any platform.

Nevertheless, it is inconvenient to download and publish the contents of the relevant account, after following the secret accounts and allowing the other party to follow you. It may require criminal liability. You should avoid such behavior.

Videos and photos shared on Instagram Reels, Story, and Explore are public and can be freely downloaded and used.
