The 4K Download team covers how the two tools are different and which one you should choose to download photos, videos, and stories from Instagram.
What is SaveFrom.net?
Savefrom.net is an online tool that enables you to save media content from Instagram and other sites by copying and pasting a video post URL.
You can also use the tool as a Chrome extension and an Android application.
According to the developers, the tool can help you:
Download Instagram photos and videos by URL
Download media content from other social media sites like YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, Vkontakte, Vimeo, and more.
How to Save Instagram Photos and Videos with SaveFrom.net
The website is easy to use: just copy the URL link of a post you want to save, paste it onto the website field, and click the download button.
How to Uninstall SaveFrom From Your Browser
If you have installed the SaveFrom.net extension to your Chrome browser and now wonder how to remove it, just follow these steps:
Find the Extensions bar in your browser and click on it.
2. Find the SaveFrom.net extension. It’s called the OrangeMonkey.
3. Press the three dots icon next to the name of the extension and choose Remove from Chrome.
4K Stogram – Best SaveFrom Alternative
Unlike SaveFrom.net, 4K Stogram is a desktop application that needs to be installed on your Windows, macOS or Linux device. 4K Stogram downloads only Instagram media, but it has a much diverse functionality when it comes to Instagram content download.
With 4K Stogram, you can:
Download Instagram photos and videos without URLs.
4K Stogram offers a better solution than SaveFrom.net: you just install the app on your PC and search for a relevant hashtag, location or username.
2. Download new posts and stories automatically.
If you want to, you can have all new posts and stories of a specific user, hashtag or location automatically downloaded on your device. 4K Stogram creates a special folder for each of your subscriptions so that you can easily find content on your machine and enjoy it offline.
3. Search for content and profiles right in the app.
If you don't know an Instagrammer whose photos, videos and stories you want to download but know only a hashtag or location, you can enter it right in 4K Stogram and find relevant posts in the app.
4K Stogram will then mass download media you select in an instant.
4. Browse Insta content without opening Instagram.
4K Stogram is not a web service; that’s a desktop tool available for Windows, macOS and Linux. To start browsing Instagram content and viewing Instagram stories anonymously, you don't need to open Instagram at all: 4K Stogram will do everything in-app.
5. View your friends' feed as your own.
How curious and fun it is to see someone’s Instagram feed just like you see your own, right? Luckily, now it’s possible to do within just a few clicks with 4K Stogram!
All you need is to enter a username whose feed you want to see and subscribe to their followings within 4K Stogram!
6. Back up an Instagram account.
4K Stogram lets you not only enjoy and browse Instagram content on your desktop but back up your own Instagram page as well.
Within 4K Stogram, you can subscribe to your own Instagram account and have all new media you already have and will upload automatically saved on your computer. You can also download posts that you're tagged in.
