There aren’t many VPNs with apps for Amazon Fire TV & Fire TV Stick. Many of those that do have Firestick apps leave out key features, which makes it even harder than on other devices to find a safe and reliable VPN for streaming or torrenting.
Only the best apps will let you watch Netflix or BBC iPlayer and stream on Kodi. Even fewer come with the advanced features we’ve come to expect in desktop and mobile VPNs: kill switches and split tunneling.
We’ve tested the most popular paid VPN apps for Firestick to find the few that are both easy to use and totally safe. All the VPN apps we cover are native Firestick apps – which means they can be downloaded directly to Firestick.

When you stream or torrent without a VPN your real IP address is visible to everyone, including your internet service provider. That’s why it’s important to use a safe VPN.
Many streaming apps on the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Cube are also geo-restricted. This means certain video content isn’t available based on your location, and the only way to bypass these geo-blocks is to use a good VPN.
Every one of the VPN we recommend in this list is compatible with Kodi, and allows torrenting and P2P traffic on at least some of its servers. In cases where not every server allows P2P traffic, the ones that do are well marked and easy to find.
