Why You Need a VPN on Your Firestick
The main reasons for using a VPN on Firestick are to unblock locked video content or protect yourself while using Kodi:
You want to watch more video content
Loads of content on Fire TV is geo-restricted, so you may not be able to access certain videos or apps depending on your location. A good VPN service will unlock all of this content.
You need to use any Kodi add-ons
A reliable VPN service is also essential if you’re planning on using any Kodi add-ons such as Yoda or Exodus Redux.
Why is this, though?
Because you may accidentally stream copyrighted content, which could land you with a hefty fine – or even a prison sentence!
Using a VPN with Kodi hides your true IP address so your streaming activity is private.

You don’t want your ISP (Internet Service Provider) to see what you’re doing online or throttle your speeds
ISPs all over the world monitor your internet and can slow down your internet connection speed depending on the websites or apps you use.
This means that streaming Netflix or BBC iPlayer on your Amazon Fire TV Stick could be a lot faster.
That doesn’t seem fair, right?
You can prevent this from happening with a secure VPN, as it will prevent your ISP from being able to see what you’re doing online.
