Private Facebook videos are those whose privacy is not Public. The privacy can be either ‘Friends’, ‘Friends of Friends’ or ‘Custom i.e., Some Specific Friends.’ Popular sites like getfvid, keepvidpro can only download Facebook videos that are public. 

A few weeks back, one of my school teachers uploaded a video slideshow of our class 10th picnic photos in the form of a .mp4 file on Facebook. I wanted to download that video on my computer so that I could upload it to cloud storage, later on, to conserve it and to prevent any accidental damage. I tried multiple sites to download the file, but unfortunately, as the privacy was set to friends, these sites failed miserably.
