Learn how to install a VPN on your Amazon Fire TV Stick using the easiest step-by-step videos and guides

The Amazon Fire TV Stick gives you instant access to different streaming services, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney Plus and BBC iPlayer. Sadly, all the aforementioned services geo-block their content, which means that you can't watch BBC Player from outside the UK, and can't access US Netflix from outside the country – unless you use a reputed VPN service.

These useful programs and apps serve the dual purpose of protecting your online identity while letting you "virtually" browse from any country in the world that you want. VPNs do this by creating a secure tunnel between your PC and the server that you're trying to access.

Did you know that your ISP can access everything that you do online? This is even more pertinent now that most people are working from home and accessing sensitive information on a regular basis. A VPN protects all your browsing activity from your ISP and snoopers, thereby safeguarding everything that you do online, from online shopping to banking transactions.

With regard to streaming services, you can install a VPN on your Amazon Fire TV Stick in the same way you install it on your PC or mobile device. Thankfully, a single VPN subscription covers at least five devices. After doing that, simply select the location you want to browse from to fool your PC into thinking that's where you're browsing from, and access all its streaming service content.


Using a VPN with your Amazon Fire TV Stick

We've written a detailed guide on the best VPN services. Of these, ExpressVPN, NordVPN, CyberGhost and Surfshark comprise our top four. Thankfully, they all let you install the VPN on your Amazon Fire TV Stick. We'll briefly explain the benefits of each VPN service, then show you how to install it on your Amazon Fire TV Stick. Even better, all these VPNs have at least a 30-day money-back guarantee, so you have more than enough time to use it for a few weeks and see whether it ticks all the boxes you need.

Of course, you can't install a VPN on the Amazon Fire TV Stick unless you have one. Thankfully, we've got you covered. You can buy the latest version of the Amazon Fire TV Stick from Amazon. This should work with most TVs so long as you have an HDMI port. However, if you have one of the newer TVs that support 4K Ultra HD resolution, then a better option is to purchase the Fire TV Stick with 4K Ultra HD support because this model will let you maximise your Fire TV Stick's capabilities.

We'll now show you how to install each of the different VPN services on your Amazon Fire TV Stick, starting with our best VPN services. Read the detailed VPN description and choose which VPN you want to purchase. Next, purchase the relevant VPN using the buy links below. After you've done that, simply follow the relevant VPN guide to install the VPN on your Amazon Fire TV Stick.
