In a perfect world, all of your internet communications would be completely private. Unfortunately, this is not the case. While you are surfing (or streaming, for that matter) your internet service provider, marketers, hackers and the government have full access to your online activity.
Unfortunately, many people are beginning to find this out the hard way. ISPs are now even going so far as issuing cease and desist letters to KODI users.
There’s a way to stay safe – Its called VPN
Luckily for us, there are companies that work just as hard to protect your internet traffic from snooping ISPs and government spooks by providing whats called virtual private network service (or VPN, for short). VPNs work by bypassing your ISPs network and creating an encrypted tunnel to another network, therefore making your traffic unreadable and untraceable.
While there are many benefits of using a service like this, here are just a few of the most important reasons connecting through a VPN is becoming more and more necessary:
- Hides your internet activity from your Internet Service Provider (and government)
- Allows you to get around censorship rules and laws (work, school, ISPs, or government)
- Allows you to appear as though you are in a different location in order to access services unfairly denied to you based on your location (or when you are traveling abroad)
- Protects your data against hackers when using public WiFi
- Allows you to stream content safely
- Allow you to download torrents safely.
In order to use VPN you must first sign up for a VPN service, which usually costs between $5 – $10 a month, but if it saves you from receiving even one legal notice, it practically pays for itself (lawyers can be expensive!).
With most services, you can use the same account across all of your devices: Computers, phones, streaming devices (such as your jailbroken Fire TV with Kodi.)
Our Recommendation for Best VPN for Streaming
Our favorite VPN here at Firestick.io is IPVanish. The IPVanish has worked very hard with us to create a native app for the Fire TV, which has made hiding KODI and other questionable traffic easier than ever for our readers. Best of all, the app is available directly from the Amazon App Store.
In the past, Fire TV users were provided with an APK to side-load IPVanish protection onto their devices — thankfully, those days are over. The VPN app for Amazon Appstore is compatible with all devices running FireOS such as the Kindle Fire HDX.
How to Set Up IPVanish VPN for Fire TV in 5 easy to follow steps
Use the video above or the text guide below to install IP Vanish on your Fire Stick or Fire TV. If you don’t have an IPVanish service yet, you’ll need to first sign up for an account using a device other than your Fire TV Stick or Box.
- If you’re using an Android device, download the Underground app to access the Amazon Appstore. If you are using a native Amazon device such as Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, you can skip this step.
- Search for ‘IPVanish VPN’ and download the Amazon app
- Open IPVanish VPN on your Android device running the Underground app, Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick
- Log into your IPVanish account.
- That’s it – enjoy a safe and private connection.*
*If you’re currently running a side-loaded APK installation of IPVanish VPN for Fire TV, you WILL NOT be able to receive app updates from the Amazon App Store. Instead, you must first uninstall the IPVanish APK before downloading the new native app.
Not sure how to uninstall the APK? Just follow these instructions:
- Go to the Home screen on your Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick
- Choose ‘Settings,’ and then scroll over and choose ‘Applications’
- Scroll down and choose ‘Manage Installed Applications’
- Find and select ‘IPVanish VPN’
- Choose ‘Uninstall’
That’s it! Now you can watch your jailbroken Fire TV content with the ease of mind that your privacy is 100% protected from snooping internet providers.
