How can I set up SaferVPN on my Amazon Fire Stick TV?

Updated on: 2017-08-13 08:36:11 UTC

Introduction

Amazon Fire TV does not have built-in VPN or MediaStreamer DNS functionality.

In order to use a SaferVPN on your Amazon Fire TV, you need to connect your Amazon Fire TV to a VPN-enabled virtual router or router. 

Two alternatives:

A. Use your laptop to create a virtual WiFi

Whether you’re using Windows or Mac, you can set up a virtual hotspot manually. It means that you’re turning your computer into a router, making all your traffic reroute through it.
You can also try Virtual Router, a free open source software that easily lets you create a WiFi hotspot in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012.

 

B. Get a VPN enabled DD-WRT router

We’ve partnered with Flashrouters to deliver the fastest routers with SaferVPN preinstalled. With such a router, connect to your desired server location to surf the web as if you were there!
Follow the tips above to make all your traffic run through a VPN. Then, connect your console or Apple TV or firestick to a VPN through the virtual hotspot you’ve created and you’ll be able to use it just as if you were in your desired location. No more geo-restrictions!
