What to Do if You Can’t Find a Saved Reel

If you don’t see a specific Reel in your Saved item list, one of a few things may have happened. The original Reel creator may have removed that specific Reel, deleting it from everyone’s Saved list. Or Facebook may have removed the Reel if it went against the platform’s guidelines.

The third reason is you or someone with access to your account may have unsaved the Reel. In this case, you can manually find the Reel and add it back to your Saved list if you want.
