So here are some easy step by step guides that walk you through the Insta Story download process & how to save a story on Instagram, whether it’s your own or someone else’s.

How to Download Instagram Stories From Your Own Account

NOTE: Since I’m an Apple user, the below screenshots will show how to download Instagram stories on iPhone. I imagine the process would be pretty similar for Android users, but if you’re still confused, let us know in the comments and I’m sure we can dig up the solutions for you.

OPTION A: Download Instagram Stories clips one by one

If you want to save your Instagram story’s individual clip (say, one selfie or boomerang as opposed to all of the ones from your story that day) here’s what you do:

  1. Open up your own Story by pressing the “Your Story” icon on the upper left hand corner of your feed
  2. With your Story open, tap the three little dots on the lower right hand corner that say “More”
  3. Hit “Save…” then press “Save Video”

Done! That one single clip should now be saved in your camera roll/photos.

OPTION B: Download an entire days’ worth of Instagram Stories

If you want to save your Instagram story in its entirety, this step by step will show you how to download an entire Instagram story video (from one 24h period) that you can save, watch back, etc.

NOTE: These videos are a little awkward because you can’t just “tap through” the photo stories as you normally would, so they linger on the screen for a seemingly unnecessary amount of time, but hey, you can’t win em all 😉

Here’s how you can save a one day Instagram story:

  1. Open up your own Story by pressing the “Your Story” icon on the upper left hand corner of your feed
  2. With your Story open, tap the three little dots on the lower right hand corner that say “More”
  3. Hit “Save…” then press “Save Story”
  4. Wait for the video to render

NOTE: These methods only work for active stories. If you want a way to download Stories that have expired, then add them to your Highlights FIRST and then use the methods listed in the next section to download them.

How to Download Instagram Stories From Someone Else’s Account

If you want to save someone’s Instagram story (i.e. NOT your own), first of all – we’re sure you have totally valid, non-stalkerish reasons for doing that. Just know you’re in a non-judgement zone 😉 Let’s just imagine it’s something totally innocent like… you did a takeover and want to save the clips, and not something totally weird like… you want to make a montage of their face to watch while eating your 5th bucket of ice cream.

Anyways, if your goal is to save someone else’s Instagram story, here’s how you download Instagram Stories from someone else’s account.

NOTE: All these websites do pretty much the exact same thing, I just wanted to give you multiple options in case one of them shuts down, which is common with third party websites like this. They all serve the same purpose, with minimal differences, so just pick whichever.
