When you post a video on social media publicly, there are chances that other people can use it for their personal interest even without asking for your permission. One of the best ways you can protect your rights to videos is by adding a watermark on them.

Apart from that, it would also help you to promote your social media accounts for free. This is what happens in the case of TikTok videos. If someone finds your work interesting, they can easily find you on social media by searching your username from the watermark.

Adding a watermark on videos is not that simple as it is for photos. Although, there are a number of video editing apps available for Android but almost all of them are paid. Even if you will edit your video in the free version, the app will add its own watermark.

We came up with this tutorial to help you add a custom watermark in your videos on Android for free. You can either add your own image logo or create a new text-based watermark. Let's get started quickly!

1. Add logo as a watermark on video


InShot is the most popular video editing app for Android. Although, the free version of the app will add its own watermark on your videos but you can remove it by watching an ad. Overall, the app is very good in terms of features and user interface.

This step-by-step guide will show you how to add logo watermark on your videos by using Inshot app -
  1. First, download and install the InShot app on your Android phone. It's available on Google Play Store for free!
