But, the method works on Fire TV Stick 2nd Generation as well as Fire TV Cube. Additionally, I have also provided brief steps to install Sapphire Secure IPTV on Android TV and iOS.

How to Register for Sapphire Secure IPTV Service
Sapphire Secure price plans start at $5 per month. We will take a look at various available options.
The first thing you want to do is visit the Sapphire Secure Price Plans webpage at https://sapphiresecure.net/cart.php
You can use a computer or mobile browser
You will find a bunch of categories on the menu. We are only interested in the following two categories:
- Shared Hosting (for regular devices like FireStick, Android, Android TV, etc.)
- Classic Server (for Mag devices)
Since this guide is about FireStick and other Android devices, we are going to choose Shared Hosting. If you have a Mag device, do not forget to choose the option Classic Server.
Currently, Sapphire Secure has three plans available:
- Silver for $5 per month and 1 device
- Gold for $8 per month and 3 simultaneous devices
- Platinum $10 per month and 5 devices
The description ‘Website’ with each plan refers to the number of connections. And, by ‘number of connections’ it means the maximum number of devices that can stream live TV with Sapphire Secure on a single subscription
Note: Sapphire Secure is not IP Locked. Meaning, the multi-connection accounts can be used at different locations
As you can see, each plan also offers a Plus+ variant
The plans with Plus+ and without Plus+ are fundamentally alike. The only difference is that these Plus+ plans contain adult channels as well.
Once you have zeroed in on a plan, click Order Now
Review the plan details on the next screen and click Continue
Now, on the following page, there are two sections
- Billing Details
- Payment Details
If you are a new customer, choose to Create a New Account under Billing Details. If you are a returning customer, click Existing Customer Login and log in with your Sapphire Secure online account and password to renew the services
I am going to demonstrate how to sign up as a new user
Enter your details in the Billing Details section as you see in the image below
At the bottom of the Billing Details section, you are required to choose the Account Security password.
This will be your Sapphire Secure web login or online portal password. This is NOT your app password. Sapphire Secure will send the app password to you in the email upon successful subscription
In this section, you are required to choose the payment method for the transaction. Here are your options:
- Credit/Debit card (all major card providers are accepted including Master and VISA)
- BitCoin/LiteCoin (this is a great way to remain completely anonymous)
Once you have decided upon the payment mode, make sure you check the ‘Terms of Service’ box
Review your Billing Details as well as Payment Details once before proceeding
When you are ready, click Checkout
Once you have successfully bought the plan, you get the purchase confirmation.
That’s it! This is how you sign up for Sapphire Secure. Check your email for your app login credentials and EPG and M3U URL.
You can now use this service on FireStick and other devices. I will show you how.
Attention FireStick Users: Read before you continue
Your government and ISP are probably monitoring your streaming activities using your IP address 18.104.22.168 (exposed to all). You may get into serious legal trouble for streaming copyrighted videos on FireStick.
I strongly recommend getting a trusted VPN for FireStick to hide your IP address and protect your online identity.
Don't miss out on the peace of mind and online security ExpressVPN provides.
How to install Sapphire Secure on FireStick
We are now going to sideload the Sapphire Secure IPTV on Amazon FireStick. You cannot get it from the official Store.
Here is what we are going to do:

Click Downloader in the search suggestions that appear on the same screen
Next, follow the onscreen instructions on the upcoming screens and get the Downloader app

Wait! It looks like you are all set to start watching your favorite content on FireStick. But have you protected your online identity yet? You are under constant surveillance by the Government and ISP. Free streaming of copyrighted videos may get you into legal trouble.
Thankfully, you can easily avoid online monitoring and safeguard your privacy with a trusted VPN on FireStick. A VPN will hide your IP address and 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 constantly being breached these days.
I personally use ExpressVPN and have found it to be the fastest and most secure FireStick VPN. It is also the most streaming-friendly VPN I have ever used. Therefore, I highly recommend getting ExpressVPN for FireStick.
Here is how you can quickly get the ExpressVPN app on FireStick:
Step 1: Click HERE to subscribe to ExpressVPN and enjoy a 49% discount with 3 months of extended service. You are also eligible for a 30-day, full money-return guarantee.

- Search for ExpressVPN.
- Click the ExpressVPN icon on the following window.
- Click Download or Get on the next window
Step 3: Open ExpressVPN once you have downloaded it. Sign in with your account.
Step 4: Choose a server and click the Connect/Power button
Put your mind at ease now! You have successfully secured your streaming activities with ExpressVPN.
How to use Sapphire Secure IPTV on FireStick to watch Live TV
Now that you have installed Sapphire Secure on FireStick, let us learn how to use this app.
You would probably first like to know how to access the app.
Go to the FireStick home window. Now, select the section Your Apps & Channels
Go to the first option on the left and choose to See All (if you can’t see this option, go to the last option on this row)
When you are here, scroll down to the last row
Click Sapphire Secure to open it
Just in case you would like to have the app on the home screen of FireStick, press the menu key on the remote (3-line key). Look at the bottom-right section of your TV. Click Move and then relocate the app to the first row right on the top.
This is the screen you will see when you open Sapphire Secure app for the first time
- Type any name inside Any Name box
- Enter your Sapphire Secure app username and password in the respective boxes
- Click on Add User
Note: Your app Username and Password has been sent to the email address you used while signing up for the Sapphire Secure account
Once you are successfully signed in, you find the name you added on the previous screen. Click the name.
Give Sapphire Secure a couple of minutes while it loads everything up
When Sapphire Secure is finally ready, this will be the main interface of the app.
To watch Live TV channels, all you need to do is click the option Live TV
Please note that Sapphire Secure doesn’t support on-demand content anymore. Therefore, Movies & Series sections will not work.
Upon clicking the Live TV option on the main screen, you are presented with various channel categories
ALL is the category where you will find all the channels in one place. For a narrower search, click one of the other categories.
Note: Scroll down for more categories that are not displayed in the screenshot below
That’s pretty much how you get started with Sapphire Secure IPTV on FireStick.
More Features of Sapphire Secure IPTV FireStick App
Here are some of the other features we will take a quick look at in this section:
- Live With EPG (Install EPG)
- Catch Up
Live With EPG
Sapphire Secure provides EPG. However, it first needs to be set up within your app.
Go to the main window of the Sapphire Secure app and click the option Live With EPG
Wait while the app sets up EPG. This may take a few minutes
You should see the channel categories. Click one of them
This is how the EPG interface looks like
Using Multi-Screen Option of Sapphire Secure on FireStick
Multi-screen is one of the most sought-after features among IPTV services.
With Multi-Screen function, you can stream multiple channels on your screen
Click the Multi-Screen on the main screen of Sapphire Secure
Now, click one of the blocks where you want the channel stream to appear
Click the desired category and then the channel you wish to stream
There are a few facts to consider before using this feature:
- You can stream up to 4 channels with Multi-Screen
- You can stream only up to as many channels as your plan allows.
- If you have a single connection plan, Multi-Screen won’t work for you
- If your plan allows 2 connections, you can watch 2 channels on Multi-Screen
- You can click any Multi-Screen block to view the streaming channel in the full-screen mode. Press the back button to get back to the Multi-Screen interface
- You need a fast internet connection to use Multi-Screen as each channel will use its own bandwidth
If you are interested in the catch-up of the past broadcasts, you could explore the Catch Up section. However, don’t have high hopes. There are just a handful of options here.
Click Catch Up on the main screen
Select the channel category and select one of the Catch Up streaming options
How to use External Player with Sapphire Secure
Sapphire Secure has a built-in player, which in my opinion is quite decent. However, it also lets you configure an external player of your choice, such as MX Player, VLC, Kodi, etc.
Here are the steps to set up an External Player with Sapphire Secure:
Go to the top-right section of the main window of the Sapphire Secure app and click the gear icon to open Settings
On this screen, select and open External Players
Click Add Player on the next window
You should see the list of the installed external players on this screen
Click the player of your choice (I am using MX Player for demonstration)
Click ADD when this prompt is displayed
Now, go back to the Settings screen and click the option Player Selection
Here, you can use different players for different categories. For instance, you may choose MX Player for Live TV while continuing to use the Build-in Player with Catch Up.
Let’s change the external player for Live TV. Click where it says Built-in Player
Select MX Player on the dropdown
That’s it! This is how you set up and use external video player with Sapphire Secure on FireStick.
Lost the Sapphire Secure IPTV Password?
When you subscribe to the Sapphire Secure service, there are two login passwords you need to deal with:
- Online Portal Password
- App/APK Password
Online Portal Password
You set up this password when you fill-up the Billing Details during the sign-up process. This password will be used to log in to the online portal of Sapphire Secure and manage your subscription.
From the online portal, you can renew the service or request the cancellation of the service. You can also update your billing information.
The online password is NOT used for the Sapphire Secure app. We will talk about the app password in the next section.
To reset your online portal password, follow these steps:
- Go to https://sapphiresecure.net/clientarea.php
- Click Forgot? next to the Password box
- Enter the email address on the following webpage and choose Submit
- Check your email inbox now. You must have received an email from Sapphire Secure with the instructions to change/reset the online portal password.
- If you can’t see the email, check the spam folder
Sapphire Secure App Password
You use this password to sign in to the Sapphire Secure app as well as with the EPG and M3U URLs (covered later) for streaming purposes.
Once you have purchased a Sapphire Secure plan, they will send an email with your login details. The subject of the email is usually ‘Your Login Info’.
In case you can’t find the email, you can view the password as well as reset it from your Sapphire Secure online portal. Follow these steps:
- Log in to your online portal at https://sapphiresecure.net/clientarea.php
- Click the Services block on the next webpage
- Click your subscription on the next screen
- Choose Login Details on the following webpage
- You will be able to see your app Username and Password on the next page.
- Click Show to reveal the password
- To change the password, click Update
How to find and use EPG and M3U with Sapphire Secure
If you have one of the Android (Mobiles & Tablets) or Android-based (FireStick, Fire TV, Android TV, Android TV Boxes), use the link bit.ly/sapphireiptv to download and install the Sapphire Secure client for streaming.
You don’t really need the EPG and M3U links on Android devices as they have their dedicated apps.
However, if you would like to use Sapphire Secure with any third-party IPTV Player (say IPTV Smarters), you will use these links.
Once you have successfully bought a Sapphire Secure plan, they send an email with the subject ‘Login info’, which also contains the EPG and M3U URLs.
They used to provide these URLs in the online portal as well, but not anymore.
Lost your login info email? No problem! Sapphire Secure has a generic EPG and M3U URLs for everyone. All you need to do is insert your app username and password in the URLs.
Replace YourUsername in this link with your Sapphire Secure username
Replace YourPassword in the link with your Sapphire secure password
How to install Sapphire Secure on Android TV and Android TV Boxes
If you are using an Android TV or an Android TV Box with Android TV OS, you can easily sideload Sapphire Secure with the Downloader tool.
Follow the steps below:
- Power on your Android TV device. On the home screen, click Apps on the left
- A popup will slide out from the right. Click Get More Apps to access Google Play Store for Android TV
- Search for Downloader and follow the onscreen instructions to install it

Install Sapphire Secure on iOS Devices
Sapphire Secure team has yet not developed an app for the iOS platform. If you have an iPhone or any other iOS device, you will need to use an IPTV player to use Sapphire Secure.
You can use IPTV Smarters. It is a lightweight and easy to use IPTV player. Here are the steps:
- Access the Apple Store and download IPTV Smarters
- Launch the app
- Use the first option that says Load Your Playlist or File/URL
- Enter the M3U URL for your Sapphire Secure subscription. I have given the URLs in one of the sections above
Sapphire Secure is a cost-effective way to watch your favorite channels online on FireStick and other devices. The app offers more than 1500 channels for just $5 per month for the single connection. You can use Sapphire Secure not only on FireStick, but on other devices as well, including Android TV, Android Mobiles, iOS devices, etc.
