I have seen many people who still don’t know how to Install  VPN on Firestick. However, I also received many emails regarding this issue so now I am finally here with this guide. In this article, I will share with you a complete step-by-step guide regarding this topic.

Installing a VPN is not a big issue but the problem that many people face is they don’t know how to use them. This is the reason why I am writing this article so make sure to stick with this guide till the end so you don’t miss any information.


What Is VPN?


Virtual Private Network full form of VPN is the connection that is used to hide IP address so a user can access Geo-Blocked websites or apps. However, there are many types of Virtual Networks available on the internet which can be used for different purposes. This feature is mostly used to secure our identity while using any public WiFi.

But nowadays people use it to use apps that are banned in their country like in case of Firestick we use this Network so we can access Netflix on geo-restricted countries like China.

On the other hand, it can be also used when a user Jailbreak their Firestick TV device. Because by doing this we install many 3rd-party applications that can access our private data.
