How to remove filter from other’s TikTok videos? 

Removing the filter from other TikTok videos isn’t possible. You can only remove from your own videos before or after recording. TikTok doesn’t allow tweaking or customizing others’ genuine work. Many users may try to download and edit work. But it is illegal and unethical, so we don’t recommend it. 

Can you actually remove the invisible filter on TikTok?

No, you can’t. The invisible filter is technically an effect rather than a filter. As a result, it resides in the TikTok Cloud and may be accessed as a downloaded/activated option when you tap on it. The filter should be located under the popular tab, and only after you select it will it be available for use.

Is there an app to remove TikTok Filters? 

No, there is no app to take off TikTok filters except TikTok. Open the TikTok app. Click the draft video you want to edit. You will have editing options. Use the back button in the top left corner. In the “effect” menu at the bottom left, you’ll find the undo button. This will remove any filter added to your video.
