When you take a video through the Instagram app, it’s housed within the app, rather than saved to your phone.
But before you start backing up all of your Instagram videos, keep in mind that saving videos to your phone means they will take up space on your device.

How to save your own Instagram videos
If you recorded a video within the app and want to save it to your phone’s camera roll, here’s what you’ll need to do:
1. Open the Instagram app on your phone.
2. Toggle over to your profile by tapping your profile photo icon in the bottom toolbar.
3. Tap on the video you want to save to your phone’s camera roll.
4. Tap the three dots in the top-right corner of the screen.
5. Select “Save” or “Save Video.”
How to save Instagram videos posted to your story
Here’s how to save one of your Instagram stories to your phone:
1. Open Instagram.
2. Tap the Stories bubble in the top-left corner of the screen.
3. When you see the video you want to save, tap the three dots.
4. In the pop-up menu, select “Save” or “Save Video” (iOS users will be given the option to save the entire story).
After completing the process, you should get a quick confirmation that your video has been saved to your device’s camera roll.
How to save Instagram videos posted by someone else
If you want to save someone else’s Instagram video, you can do it by recording your phone screen.
Finally, make sure you give the original account proper credit if you post the video later. It’s poor practice and potential copyright infringement if you steal someone else’s video and pretend it’s your own.
