Attention: Read before you continue
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.
Currently, the following information is visible:
- Your IP: 18.104.22.168
- Your Country: United States
- Your City: Ashburn
- Your ISP: Amazon Technologies Inc.
If this is your real information, you need to use a VPN to protect your identity.
We strongly recommend you to get a good VPN and hide your identity so that your online experience doesn’t take a bad turn.
We use IPVanish which is the fastest and most secure VPN in the industry. It is very easy to install on any device including Amazon Fire TV Stick. Also, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you don’t like their service, you can always ask for a refund. IPVanish also runs a limited time offer where you can save 76% on your VPN and they allow you to use one account on unlimited devices.
This is a flash sale that can expire at any time!
Use a VPN
First things first, protect yourself with a good quality VPN. This will keep you safe from shady online lurkers who’re always looking to steal other people’s data and identity while streaming and downloading content. This could be anyone, from your government to your ISP, a cybercriminal and even some random mass surveillance program that you’re not aware of.
Either way, it’s always best to use a VPN like IPVanish to protect yourself when using your Fire TV or any digital device for that matter. IPVanish provides you with an encrypted connection. It locks your private information away so that no-one can even see your location or your online activity.
We recommend IPVanish because it’s really compatible with Firestick, Fire TV and many other types of devices. Not only that but IPVanish offers a really handy app that’s easy to use and incredibly responsive on the Fire TV. All you need to install the hardware is a simple click and you’re good to go. Next, you’ll sign in and allow it to keep running in the background. That’s it. It’s literally that simple and pretty much anyone can use it.
It’s worth noting that IPVanish offers its users access to a vast network with almost 1,000 servers spread across 60 different countries. This means you’ll have an endless array of IP addresses to choose from. This is the easiest way to stay anonymous online. On top of that, IPVanish protects your connection with DNS leak protection technology and an automatic kill switch that prevents you from connecting when the VPN is disabled. Other notable features from IPVanish include 256-bit AES encryption and a zero-logging policy which means they won’t save any of your traffic history.
