How To Remove That TikTok Watermark

Instagram has said time and time again that they want high-quality content on their platform. They specifically said that their algorithm won’t push out videos that contain watermarks on them so we decided to include a bonus platform that helps you remove watermarks.


Kapwing is a service that edits your photos and videos for free but it’s an online tool, not an app. You don’t need to do it yourself, because the watermark remover online will automatically remove any unwanted labels from what you upload – preserving its quality as if nothing was changed which makes it that much easier to turn your videos into reels.
