You can also check how to view Instagram private profile without following anyone. 

Most of the Instagram downloader tools allow you to download videos by input the URL. To view and download videos and photos, you must follow an Instagram private account. This means that the regular method of downloading videos from private Instagram accounts is no longer possible.

For more information, you can either watch the video or refer to the text below.

Method 1: Directly download Instagram video from your private account

The truth is: you do not need any online tools or software to download videos or download photos from Instagram private account. You only need a web browser. It doesn't matter if it's Chrome, Firefox or Edge.

Downloading private videos and images from Instagram is easy on a Windows PC, Mac or Mac. Let me demonstrate how it works.

Step 1. Step 1. Log in to Instagram and open the page for the private video you wish to download. Firefox is the best web browser. Other browsers will also work.

Step 2. Step 2. On Windows, you can press F12 or Command + Option + I for a Mac.

Step 3. Step 3. You will then see the link to the file that can be used for downloading the video.

Posting interesting videos can help Instagramers continually get free followers and likes. If you are one of these users and want to save them, read on to learn how to download Instagram videos.


You can download private Instagram photos by selecting Img instead Media under the Network tab.

Step 4. Step 4. Reload the page if the download link doesn't appear.

It may be necessary to refresh the page and watch the video again before the Media tab displays the results. If you still don't see any results, click on the All tab. Although it may take longer, you will be able to find the URL for video downloading.

Method 2: Download Instagram Private Videos from the Source Code

You can also download Instagram video directly from your computer without the Developer Tools option. To view the source code, right-click on the Instagram page containing the video you wish to download. To do this, you can also use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+U

To open a search bar, press Ctrl+ F on the source code page. Search for "" (without quotes). You will then find the link to the private Instagram video. To download the private Instagram video to your computer, just open the link in another tab.

Search for "og.image" to search for private images. This method can also be used to download photos or videos on Instagram.

Method 3: Download a private Instagram video on your iPhone

I know you spend more time on Instagram via your mobile device so I created a Siri Shortcut to allow you to download videos from Instagram private accounts. Siri Shortcuts is one of the key features in iOS 12. To explore its full potential, you can download the Shortcuts App.

You will need Safari to access Shortcuts. I'm sure you have Safari installed on your iOS device. You cannot copy the link to private images or videos from Instagram app. You can also use Safari as a workaround. Follow these steps to get started.

Step 1. Step 1. Then get this Private IG Downloader shortcut by open the link in Safari. The shortcut link has been updated.

Step 2. Step 2. Log in to Instagram from Safari. Next, go to the website of the video you wish to download.

Step 3. Step 3. Tap More to enable Shortcuts if you don't see it.

Step 4. Step 4. After it finishes, you will be asked where to save your video. You can save Instagram videos to Camera Roll and iCloud.

This shortcut will change the page title to the video file name. This shortcut can be edited to add a custom name. You can use this shortcut to get Instagram videos without URL.

You can tap the Share button to save the video from Instagram. It's that easy. You can also copy the URL to run this shortcut to get Instagram video.


You can also use Siri Shortcuts to download videos from IGTV.

This is how to download private Instagram videos from your computer or iPhone. Of course, there is online private Instagram video downloader, but it will also ask you to input the entire source code. You can easily search for it online so I don't believe that this is necessary.

It is now your turn. Which one do you prefer for downloading Instagram videos or photos? Comment your thoughts below.
