The five VPN providers below all offer slick, dedicated apps for the Amazon Fire TV Stick and Fire TV Cube.
They deliver smooth streaming, allow P2P traffic (for Kodi users) and provide total protection for the utmost privacy.
Whether you’ve got a Firestick, FireTV, or any other Amazon device, these are the best VPNs for you.
Wondering why you should trust our reviews? Take a look at How We Test VPNs
While you could use almost any VPN with your Fire TV Stick by installing it at router level, or side-loading it, our top five picks all have their very own dedicated Fire TV apps that you can download from your streamer’s app store.
Security and privacy are also key concerns: all our recommendations successfully hide your IP and DNS with no leaks. They also won’t store logs of your viewing or downloading habits.
In addition to downloading the app directly from the Amazon Appstore, you can also sideload any Android VPN app from another Google Play-connected device.
If you want to use Kodi, you’ll need to install that, too. There’s a few different methods depending on the generation of your Fire TV device. Whatever it is you’re doing, be sure to connect to your VPN before you start streaming.
When so many top-tier providers have dedicated apps available on the Amazon Appstore there’s really no reason to consider anything else.
It’s by far the quickest and easiest way to ensure that your Fire TV device is fully protected.
If you have a first generation Fire TV Stick then your options are more limited compared to newer devices. You need to have second generation or newer to be able to take advantage of the custom apps.
The first generation was released in 2014, the second in 2016 and the third in 2018.
Look for a VPN that’s as close as possible to ‘zero logs’. Some will log a degree of usage stats in order to maintain performance on huge, busy networks – that’s fine.
What’s not fine is a VPN that keeps track of exactly when and what you streamed, or what app was used. Be sure to check logging policies carefully.
You need reliable, fast download speeds combined with low ping to watch silky smooth Full-HD, or even 4K, video streams via your Fire TV streaming device.
When reading one of our VPN reviews, be sure to check our detailed speed test results for the location and server combinations that you’ll be using the most.
Do you watch Netflix or BBC iPlayer? Not every VPN will work with these apps. We continuously test whether each VPN is working with Netflix and other apps and share the results in our VPN reviews.
Even the most expensive VPN plans are very affordable but you will likely have a budget in mind. 12-month plans typically offer the best value and you can reduce the risk of buyer’s remorse by choosing a VPN with a long refund period, preferably 30 days and with no questions asked. These guarantees are much more common than traditional free trials but are essentially the same thing.
