If you’re using a Kodi media player on your Amazon Fire Stick, you may want to consider adding a VPN to keep your streams private and secure. In this article, we’ll show you how to set up a VPN on your Fire Stick so you can start watching Kodi with peace of mind.
Before we get started, please note that we do not condone the use of Kodi for illegal streaming purposes. This guide is intended for educational purposes only. With that said, let’s get started!
1. Choose a VPN service that supports Amazon Fire TV and Fire Stick devices. We recommend ExpressVPN because it offers fast speeds, strong security features, and easy-to-use apps for all popular platforms (including Amazon Fire TV).
2. Sign up for an account with your chosen VPN provider and download the app onto your Fire Stick device (this will usually be done via the Amazon Appstore).
3. Open the VPN app and sign in using your account credentials. Keep the app open while we proceed to the next step
One of the simplest ways to add a VPN to your Firestick is by using an app called Downloader. Downloader is an app that allows you to download and install other apps on your Firestick, and it’s available for free from the Amazon Appstore. Once you’ve installed Downloader, open it up and enter https://www.firetvtricks.com/bestvpns into the URL bar at the top of the screen. This will take you to our list of recommended VPNs for Fire TV devices. Find the one you want to use and click the link to go through to their website. From here, follow their instructions for installing the VPN on your device.
Alternatively, if your chosen VPN doesn’t have an app available on the Amazon Appstore, you can still install it on your Firestick using another method. Many VPNs provide what’s known as an OpenVPN configuration file – this is a file that contains all of the necessary information for connecting to a VPN server. To use an OpenVPN config file with your Firestick, first download it from your chosen provider’s website onto your PC or Mac (you’ll need somewhere accessible like Dropbox or Google Drive). Then open Downloader on your Firestick again and enter http://www .highproxies .com/download/configs into the URL bar at the top (replacing www with whatever address hosts your config files). This will take you through to High Proxies where you can select which config file you wantto download – just find yours in the list and hit ‘Download’. Once it’s downloaded onto your device, open it up in any text editor (we recommend ES Note Editor) and copy all of its contents into clipboard memory (Ctrl+A then Ctrl+C on Windows/Linux or Cmd+A then Cmd+C on macOS). Now go back into Downloader and enter http://pastebin .com/raw / into the URL bar followed by whatever random string of characters appears when holding down Alt+V (so if it says jKas83hd9iX5b4l0LOcxv3JFyLNg4kjdSa90LP1O6DU= , then type that after Pastebin). This should take you through directly editing a new paste on Pastebin – simply paste in ( Ctrl+V or Cmd+V) what was copied from earlier then hit ‘Create New Paste’. When asked whether or not this content should be made publically viewable, select ‘Yes’. You should now see a page with something like http://pastebin . com / jKas83hd9iX5b4l0LOcxv3JFyLNg4kjdSa90LP1O6DU= at
