However, due to regional restrictions, each area can only watch local programs, so you can switch to different regions of the world via VPN, so you can watch programs in each region. Here are some recommended VPN software for Fire TV Stick devices. These VPN softwares are all suitable for Fire TV Stick devices, ensuring a safe and smooth viewing of programs.

Then, What Is The Best VPN For Amazon Fire TV Stick?

 

1.     NordVPN          >>Get Deal

NordVPN has servers optimized for ultra-fast streaming and can unblock US Netflix and Hulu from the Android app. The Panama-based provider holds to a true zero-logs policy and maintains strong security standards. A single subscription nets you six simultaneous connections. Tutorials for a wide range of router firmware are available on its website as well. The app automatically opens to a map view, which might be a bit wonky to use with a Fire TV remote, but a list view is available. You may need to use a Bluetooth mouse.

 

2.     VyprVPN          >>Get Deal

This VPN is blazingly fast and delivered more than twice our normal download rates, which will be pure streaming heaven for users watching 4K content (or HD, for that matter). The server count is very impressive as well, with more than 700 servers in 70+ locations around the globe.

 

VyprVPN has its own Fire TV app, available in the APK format or directly through the Amazon Store. The app offers lots of speed optimisation options and will automatically connect to the fastest server available, also providing you with upload and download speed graphs, a ping test and so on.

 

OpenVPN and Chameleon protocols are used here, with the latter being VyprVPN’s proprietary solution that’s designed to avoid deep packet inspection, and your VPN connection being detected and throttled or blocked (note that this is only available on the Premium plan).

 

The provider also has its own DNS solution, and maintains a ‘no logs’ policy, although that said, some session logging does take place, such as connection times and IPs – which might not be ideal for everyone.

 

3.     IPVanish

IPVanish certainly delivers on the performance front, over both short hops and long-distance connections, with the former being up to five times quicker than some rivals, and the latter showing a commendable average increase of 15% in download speeds. There are plenty of servers to choose from, with impressive global coverage.

 

There’s also a dedicated Fire TV app that is easy to setup and use. It has some handy options like automatic IP switching and fastest server optimisation, although note that it doesn’t support the first-generation Fire Stick. IPVanish doesn’t log any traffic or connection data when you use the service.

 

One downside worth mentioning is that when we tested out the firm’s customer support, we found it sluggish to respond, which obviously isn’t ideal if you do run into a problem.

 

4.     ExpressVPN

ExpressVPN offers an excellent level of technical support, including lots of troubleshooting guides and 24/7 live chat support, plus you can also get in touch via email if that’s more convenient.

 

The Android app uses the OpenVPN protocol, encrypting all traffic with 256-bit encryption. The privacy policy clearly explains that the company doesn't collect or log traffic data, connection IPs, or browsing activity from individual users, a huge plus for Kodi users. In our testing, we confirmed that ExpressVPN unblocks Netflix US, BBC iPlayer and a wide range of streaming services. ExpressVPN also provides Fire TV-compatible MediaStreamer DNS services, for those who wish to unblock content even when not connected to the VPN.

 

Price plans aren’t the cheapest, but may be worth the added cost for the best possible streaming experience on Fire TV / Fire TV Stick. The pricing is somewhat mitigated by ExpressVPN's ‘no hassle’ money-back guarantee which allows you to try the full service for up to 30 days, with no sneaky small print restrictions on bandwidth or similar.

 

5.     PrivateVPN

PrivateVPN recently launched a Fire TV version of its app, which you can download and install directly from the official Amazon app store on your Firestick with no workarounds or hacks. PrivateVPN, not to be confused with Private Internet Access, is a fresh up-and-comer in the VPN industry. While it has a smaller VPN server network than the other options on this list, it performs just as well when it comes to unblocking geo-locked content like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and BBC iPlayer.

 

PrivateVPN also uses encryption standards on par with its veteran counterparts. It boasts a no-logging policy and allows up to six simultaneous connections.

 

6.     Windscribe

Windscribe makes a dedicated app for Firestick users available on the Fire TV app store. It’s super easy to install without tweaking any settings and doesn’t require any third-party apps to control. A Windscribe subscription nets you fast speeds, unlimited simultaneous connections, and strong security. It unblocks US Netflix as well as a handful of other streaming video sites from abroad. Windscribe works in China and allows torrenting. It keeps no logs of user activity. In addition to Fire TV, apps are available for Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, along with browser extensions for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.

 

7.     Buffered VPN

This Hungarian-based provider offers impressive performance levels, with five simultaneous connections supported. In our review, we encountered an issue where a website wouldn’t load due to the VPN – and this might well be a one-off, but it’s still something to note. Buffered has 45 server locations and while that number isn’t as big as some other VPNs, they are all major locations so it shouldn’t make a huge difference.

 

The network has a detailed tutorial on how to set up Amazon’s Fire Stick so there shouldn’t be any problems on that front. If any occur, there is an extensive FAQ and live chat support to help you troubleshoot. This VPN makes it clear that it doesn’t log any online activity, so your privacy will be well protected. One of this provider’s strong points is a generous 30-day refund policy that’s valid for up to 10 hours of usage time, 100 sessions or 10GB of bandwidth – whichever comes first.

 

8.     Ivacy

Ivacy is another good choice for Amazon Fire TV Stick users.  It provides a fast and protected VPN for FireStick device. It allows you to download and stream online content with complete freedom. It provides total anonymity and keeps zero logs, meaning you get complete internet freedom.

 

9.     Betternet

Betternet has over 38 million users worldwide and it keeps improving with the passage of time. The good thing about Betternet is that it is a free one due to which it has been much successful among Firestick users. However, it also offers a premium version with 7-day free-trial.

 

10.  HideMyAss

HideMyAss is no doubt a top-rated VPN to use on Amazon Fire Stick that lets you stream various media content on FireStick device. Get your device protected for online browsing with a faster speed possible. It can be used in many devices including gaming consoles.
