Facebook allows you to share posts in the form of both images and videos. Sometimes, you find some helpful videos on Facebook and want to save them for watching offline. Unfortunately, Facebook doesn’t let you take those videos for offline watching.

We have included some methods that have worked for us, and hopefully, they will work for you too. Through these methods, you will be able to download videos on iPhone, Android, and desktop. Let’s move on to the required steps to download Facebook videos.
