Governments and ISPs across the world monitor their users online activities. If found streaming or browsing content on your Fire TV Stick, mobile or PC, you could get into serious trouble.

Let’s take a look at how to install and use Top TV Launcher 2!

The first thing you should do is to turn on the ‘ADB Debugging‘ and ‘Apps from Unknown Sources.’

You need to go to ‘Settings’ > Search for ‘My Fire TV‘ >Open ‘Developer options’ and turn the ‘ADB Debugging‘ and ‘Apps from Unknown Sources’  ON.

Installing TV Launcher for Firestick via FileLinked

By using FileLinked, you will be able to access a lot of apps that you can’t find on the Amazon App Store. 

It has never been easier to install on your Fire TV and Firestick than with FileLinked codes.

Before you can start, it is needed to customize your Firestick and enable apps from unknown sources to continue installing apps in your device.

We recommend you use the WebSafetyTips store to access the latest APKs available.

TV Launcher is the best custom launcher for Firestick in our opinion and works flawlessly on all versions including the 4k Firestick.

So let’s jump right into the installation and setup process.

1. Launch FileLinked on your Fire Tv Stick, and enter 11111111 (eight ones).

2. Scroll down to the  TV Launcher and click on it.

This app is so easy to use that you’re almost done at this point.

5. You will now be guided through some tips which you can read attentively or simply click through.

When you have clicked through the tips you will see the following screen.

7. In this step you will see a document file, just as in the photo below. But wouldn’t it be nicer and easier if there was a logo of the app you just added?

8. Click on the document file. Go for “Change tile image.”

9. Four options will be available for you to decide what kind of image do you want to use.

The easiest way is the first option “Create tile from application icon/banner.” This is where all the icons of your apps are available. You just decide which icon matches with the app you added in step 5.

10. To move the tile from one position to another one, go for “Move tile” and adjust in what row and position the tile would fit your screen.

11. To remove a tile, click on “Remove tile” option and the tile will be deleted right away.

Now you know how to add and remove a tile on Top TV Launcher 2.

Here are a few basic instructions on how to customize the launcher and make it more attractive for the eye.

At the option “Appearance” you can optimize tile text size, border, colour, brightness, etc. Feel free to make your own decisions and why not even show your designing skills.

“Wallpaper” is an option to set a wallpaper image to make the screen look more attractive and personalized.

How to set the Top TV Launcher 2 as Default Launcher:

1. Go to the toolbar at the end of your screen and choose the third option.

2. Click on “Set default launcher” and choose Top TV Launcher 2 as your Home launcher.

Top TV Launcher 2 has limited compatibility and in some devices it can’t be launched as a default launcher. We have thought about that too!

Most people don’t know how to clean cache or hidden files. My uncle had a tv app that stored 2.3gb of data for some reason, all hidden. I had to ES File explorer it.

In response to Margaret Williams…..the next big thing would be the Nivea Shield, but it’s quite pricey at just about $200 dollars, if that’s to much for u I would recommend a android box that runs the android tv operating system, stay away from stock android boxes as some can’t run Netflix, Hula, or Amazon Prime. I would recommend at least 3 GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB ROM, a good choice would be the TZ95 Plus as it also is 4K and hard wired capable and is priced around $100 dollars, Good luck.

next best thing is a Formuler Z8, about $140-$150, then Nvidia Shield.

Shield is overkill if all you are doing is streaming IPTV or TV/Movie APKs
