Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue

Your streaming activities are probably getting monitored constantly by your Government and your ISP. If you are caught streaming copyrighted videos on your FireStick, you are likely to get into serious legal trouble.

Your IP address 2607:5300:203:2226:: is exposed to anyone who is watching. That is how they will track you. Therefore, I strongly recommend that you get a trusted VPN for Firestick right now and hide your online identity.

I am using ExpressVPN on all my devices as it is the most reliable, most secure, and the fasted VPN in the market. You can easily install and set up ExpressVPN on FireStick or any other device within minutes.

ExpressVPN offers you a money-return guarantee of 30 days. Also, you can claim 3-months free and save 49% on its annual plans.

The primary installation method I am going to demonstrate in this guide involves the use of Downloader app.

Third-party apps like Mobdro can only be sideloaded on FireStick with the help of additional tools like Downloader.

So, the first thing we need to do is, make sure we have the Downloader app. You can get it from Amazon Store and here are the steps:

  • Access the Search tool from the home screen of your FireStick
  • Now, using the remote and onscreen keyboard, type Downloader
  • It will appear in the search results underneath the keypad. Click it
  • Now click the Downloader option on the following screen
  • On the next screen, click Download and wait for the Downloader app to download and install

We can now get started with the installation process. Please follow the steps:

1- Go to the home screen of your FireStick again. You can press the Home button on your remote to get there from any other active screen

2- From the home screen access Settings. You will find this option on the top, in the menu bar

3- Now, go to My Fire TV

Wait! Before you start watching your favorite content on FireStick, make sure you have protected your online identity. Your streaming activities are likely being monitored and logged by your Government as well as your ISP. Free streaming of copyrighted videos may get you into legal trouble.

All you need to do is connect to a trusted and reliable VPN on FireStick. A VPN will hide your IP address and your online identity by encrypting your internet connection.

Please note that I am not encouraging you to violate any copyright laws. You should always watch the content available in the public domain. I am simply recommending the use of a VPN to maintain your privacy. You have every right to your privacy, which is being constantly breached these days.

I personally use ExpressVPN and have found it to be the fastest and most secure FireStick VPN. It is the most streaming-friendly VPN I have ever used. Therefore, I highly recommend getting ExpressVPN for FireStick.
