TikTok to Instagram Reels With No Watermark

Automatically release your TikTok videos as Instagram Reels with no TikTok watermark.

It’s a three-step process. Here’s how you do it.

Step 1: Connect your TikTok.
Step 2: Connect your Instagram.
Step 3: Create an automatic workflow and turn it on.

That’s all! Once you put out a TikTok, it will appear simultaneously on your Instagram and look like a native Instagram Reel.

Select your connections: TikTok and Instagram.

Connecting your TikTok and Instagram accounts

Connecting your accounts to set up the automatic TikTok to Instagram integration takes a few seconds and can be done from any device.

Go to “Connections.” Click “+Add a new connection.” Pick TikTok and Instagram.

TikTok – you can login as you normally would.

Instagram – you must be on a business account.

Creating a workflow

After connecting your TikTok and Instagram, go to “Workflows,” then click “+Create a new workflow.” You can customize settings, but for most people, it’s unnecessary.

Turn on your automatic workflow starting with the current date, and everything’s done!

Your videos will now automatically be released on Instagram as they come out on TikTok.

How do videos come out?

Your TikTok videos are automatically converted and published to Instagram within two hours of appearing on TikTok.

You don’t have to download the video off TikTok and upload it yourself. You don’t have to write titles for Instagram. All you do is post a video on TikTok, and within two hours, it will come out on Instagram with the same title you set for TikTok.

Optional: customize video upload settings

Customizing video upload settings is not required or even recommended. I, personally, have an automatic workflow going for TikTok to Instagram, and I left on the default settings.

Still, here are some customizations you can make:

  • Video templates with custom text and branding.
  • An intro clip and outro clip.
  • A fade out at your videos’ ends.
  • Hashtag customizations:
    • Exclude or only include videos with specific hashtags.
    • Strip all hashtags so your TikTok videos appear on Instagram without your TikTok hashtags.
  • Add custom text before or after your video descriptions.
  • Share to the Instagram feed.
  • Get emailed upon each video upload.
  • Video resizing – for example, if you want to make the videos square.

Again, I have no customizations. I used the default settings, which takes a few seconds to implement, and it has worked well for my 230+ video uploads.

Default workflow settings are enough for most people but many customizations are still offered.

Videos can be 15-minutes

Unlike many other short form video platforms, Instagram Reels can be up to 15-minutes, exceeding the limit that TikTok has on video length.

For this reason, you will have no issues with length when it comes to converting your TikTok videos to Instagram Reels.

Video length limit often isn’t publicly shown on platforms, and can change at the whim of the developers.

For this reason, it’s important to stay on top of length limit so you don’t have to suddenly shorten a TikTok video that you want to put on Instagram Reels.

Can you publish your entire TikTok library to Instagram at once?

The maximum amount of TikTok videos you can publish to Instagram at once is 5-25. After 5 Reels, videos may receive less views depending on engagement metrics such as retention, likes, and shares.

If you have a backlog of many TikTok videos, the best way to put them on Instagram is by manually hitting “Publish” on around ten videos a day (even on YouTube, 10 is the upper limit before a 12-hour cooldown period is reached). Be conscious not to post videos within only a few minutes of each other so your account is not seen as spammy. 

Once you publish your entire backlog, you can choose to make your workflow automatic so future videos are automatically released.

You can also choose not to release your previous TikTok videos and immediately start with automatic current releases. This is especially good for creators producing 5-10 TikToks daily. Publishing your entire backlog takes time and is not worth it for everybody.

Videos appear native to Instagram

As your videos are released from TikTok to Instagram, they will appear to be made native for Instagram, with the TikTok metadata removed from the videos.

This means they may be discovered by random users and the algorithms will push them when relevant.

Reels on your page will not look like they came from another platform.

Videos look like they were made normally for Instagram Reels. There's no TikTok watermark or anything out of the ordinary.
You can have your TikTok videos auto publish on every major video platform.

Automatically publish to other social media platforms

The more places your videos are in, the more views, followers, and awareness you get.

Even with no pre-existing follower-base, each platform recommends your content to users based on what’s in the video, what’s in your video titles and descriptions, your hashtags, and the types of people who engage with your videos. This means that by having your TikTok videos go to all platforms, all your channels can grow on their own.

If you’d like to put your videos on more than just Instagram, here are other places they can go:

If you’re not on all of these places, but you’re making a lot of content for TikTok, you may want to consider creating accounts on the platforms you’re not on.

Since I put out TikTok videos daily, I have all my videos automatically published on those six channels. I’ve gotten a lot more exposure by doing this.

Why this is recommended

Instagram Reels have become ubiquitous when it comes to short-form mobile video. 2 billion people interact with reels each month and Instagram itself has 2.5 billion monthly users (almost one third the world’s population).

This, and Instagram’s excellent interest-matching algorithm, is why putting your TikTok videos on Instagram can get you a lot of engagement.

Going one step further, having your videos come out on Instagram automatically will save you a lot of extra time and energy – which you can then use to improve the quality of your videos.
