How to download Facebook videos on Android or iPhone

It is possible to use an app on Android, but they all look as if they haven't been updated since Android Froyo or ask you to sideload them. We do not recommend sideloading since it could compromise the security of your device. We also don't like recommending apps that haven't been updated in years, so we recommend using the browser on your Android device.

If you're on an iOS device, you'll need to use a desktop app called Cydia Impactor that asks for your Apple credentials to generate a certificate for a third-party app or worse, jailbreak your device. Say no to both, as that could compromise the security of your device.
