How to download Youtube video for free without an App or software

Have you been looking for an easier hustle-free way for downloading Youtube videos? This is where your search ends.

There isn’t a method better than this for downloading a Youtube video. It works on all devices, mobile, and laptop.

Before we go ahead, you need to understand that Youtube videos are not meant to be downloaded. This is to protect creators against copyright infringers.

But if you need to download a youtube video for your personal use, make sure not to share the downloaded version. If you want to share the video, it will be better to use the share button provided by Youtube.

On PC or Mac you will be asked to choose a location and file name while on Android, the download may begin straight away.

On iPhone, using the Safari browser(maybe other browsers too), a download icon will appear to the top right corner of the screen.
