How to use your Amazon Fire Stick securely

The popularity of Amazon Fire TV and FireStick continues growing and in order to get the most out of them, it is advisable to use a VPN. A VPN will allow you to get around restrictions that prevent you from accessing the content that you want to watch and it will also protect your data from prying eyes. Many apps are subject to geographical blocks, which means that if you try to use them from outside a specific region, you will only come across an error message letting you know that it is not available in your location. If you want to access an app that is only available in the United States, but you live in a different country, you just need to connect to a VPN server in the US. This will give you a US IP address that will help you to unblock the content.

Apart from allowing you to unblock content from around the world, a VPN can also help you to enjoy a better streaming experience. Some ISPs slow down your connection, particularly when you are streaming. This practice is known as throttling. Since a VPN uses encryption to protect your internet traffic, others can’t see what you are doing online. Not even your ISP will know what websites you visit or what services you are using. This means that they won’t know that you are streaming and this will prevent them from throttling your connection. The use of encryption will also keep your internet traffic private. Your personal data, your browsing activities and everything else will be secured so third parties won’t be able to access this information. There are many VPN services available in the market, but it is important to choose wisely. ExpressVPN and NordVPN are two of the main services that we recommend due to their high encryption, advanced security features and solid privacy policies. They don’t keep logs of your activities and offer extensive networks that give you access to servers around the world.
