We live in a society that's constantly connected to the internet, but there are times when we get disconnected, either by choice or by force. And of course, there are places in the world where connecting to the internet is difficult — or even impossible. In those situations, you can't pull up your favorite YouTube video on your computer or phone to relax or share with a friend. However, there is a solution: downloading videos to save to your phone for offline viewing.
Sure, there are plenty of third-party solutions for downloading YouTube videos, but the company doesn't allow it. As per YouTube's terms of service, users are not allowed to "access, reproduce, download, distribute, transmit, broadcast, display, sell, license, alter, modify or otherwise use" any YouTube content. Failure to follow this rule could lead to the termination of your account. However, there is an exception: getting authorization from YouTube through its YouTube Premium service.
