How to Install VPN on a Firestick / FireTV (the easy way)

This guide will show you how to easily install the IPVanish VPN on your Firestick. It also has a guide for installing Private Internet Access(PIA) on your 2nd Gen Amazon Fire Stick, 1st Generation Fire TV or 2nd Generation Fire TV. You can use the guide for other VPN Clients but you will need to find a link to the Android VPN client of your VPN service. When you have that you can replace the bit.ly link I use in the guide below.


I recommend using a VPN to help keep yourself anonymous and protect yourself online. You can get 25% off any package from IPVanish which allows you to connect 5 devices to an encrypted VPN connection at any one time.
