As the largest social network in the world with over 2 billion monthly active users, Facebook has naturally become one of the largest video sites – while apparently lying about its metrics to get more advertisers – hoping to compete with YouTube for the time people spend watching things on their phones, tablets, laptops, or TVs.

But unlike YouTube, Facebook doesn’t have a view feature yet offline. This means that if you’re wondering how to download Facebook videos, it’s not as simple as pressing the download button and done. If you’ve ever wondered how to download Facebook videos to your favorite device – Android, iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows or Linux – here’s how you can proceed.

What you should choose below depends on how often you plan to do it. If it’s something to do once every lunar eclipse, choose the website location. If you plan to regularly download videos from Facebook, a browser add-on or an external app may be a better choice. Here’s how to download Facebook videos on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

Of the apps, 4K Video Downloader is one of the best options as it supports multiple platforms – Windows, Mac and Linux – and offers quality, ranging from 240p to 2K. (Facebook doesn’t allow 4K videos, the app’s name comes from its ability to download 4K YouTube videos.)

Sideloading could compromise the security of your device and that’s why we don’t recommend it. We also don’t feel comfortable recommending apps with a poor user interface that haven’t been updated in years, so it’s best to do this via a browser on your Android phone.

    On iOS devices, the app path is even more troublesome, as you’ll need a desktop app called Cydia Impactor which will ask you for your Apple credentials to generate a certificate for a third-party app, or worse yet, you will need to jailbreak your Apple device. Say no to both of them, as this could compromise the security of your device.
