How to Install a VPN on a Firestick

Internet providers are increasingly blocking access to content and even spying on your Internet activities. We know how you feel. In order to take control over your privacy online and to prevent your activities from being recorded, there’s one option: a VPN. We’re here to show how to install a VPN on a Firestick or similar device.

A VPN, or virtual private network, encrypts your traffic and provides you a new IP address. This means installing a VPN ensures security and anonymity on the Internet to hide your activity from your Internet provider. In addition, you no longer have to worry about bandwidth limitations from your Internet provider because you will no longer be limited to one service.

The IPVanish VPN uses cutting edge tunneling and encryption to hide your IP address. Essentially, your connection to the Internet will no longer be tied to your home location and instead you can choose to become anonymous to finally have the privacy you deserve.

We have created a tutorial below to walk you through the step-by-step details on how to install a VPN on a Firestick.

Why IPVanish is the best VPN service?

After testing many VPN providers, we discovered that first, only a few are compatible with the FireTV or Firestick. Secondly, many aren’t comprehensive privacy protectors. Just to mention a few issues, some forget to delete entire log files, while others didn’t prioritize privacy first and foremost. Rather than comparing the “less than optimal” providers, we’ll cut to the chase. 

Here’s our favorite – the VPN with best performance, usability, security, privacy, and pricing: IPVanish.

IPVanish does not keep track of any traffic logs. This means that if your activity history were ever requested, it simply won’t exist. It also provides the best VPN speeds, the most secure connections, and the most competitive pricing.

Another cool point is that there is no limit to the number of VPN you can install on a Firestick. IPVanish will allow you to use their VPN service on up to 10 devices at the same time with one account. This is great for those of us who want to extend privacy protection to every device. You can now use a VPN service on your computer, phone, tablet, FireTV or Firestick, and more. It is compatible on different platforms such as Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Hi I am currently using Nord VPN on my Sony Bravia Android TV. However every time I connect Nord my TV reboots after 30 minutes or so. Would this issue happen with IP Vanish. I don’t want to pay out again for a VPN that I can’t use.
