Amazon Firestick is a reliable source to stream media contents from the Internet. The best thing about Firestick is that you can access various legal and illegal apps to stream the media. By sideloading certain third-party apps, you will get repetitive ads while streaming contents on those apps.
Despite its popularity, Amazon doesn’t offer any tool or app to block those annoying ads. Since it runs of Android-based Fire OS, you can access the third-party sources to block the ads on your Firestick. Blokada Ad blocker is one of the applications that can be downloaded without paying any fee. Launched in November 2016, you can use this app to protect your privacy by blocking ads, malware and trackers. It also increases the performance of your Firestick/Fire TV device. Here, we will show you the procedure to block ads on your streaming device using the Blokada app.
Why you need a VPN
While Streaming online, your IP will be exposed easily. Hence ISPs (Internet Service Providers), app developers, government agencies and hackers can track your online activities with ease. At the end of the day, you may face some legal problems if you have streamed any copyrighted contents. To avoid these problems, we recommend you to use VPN (Virtual Private Network). A good VPN lets you hide your real identity by switching your IP to different locations. On the other hand, VPN is also helpful in accessing the media that are geo-restricted. Some of the apps/services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and more are geo-restricted in certain countries. To bypass those restrictions, you need to install a VPN on your device.
After trying out several free and paid VPN services, we recommend you to use NordVPN. It is regarded as the best VPN to safeguard your privacy. While purchasing the NordVPN, make sure to select the annual plans rather than selecting the monthly plans. Moreover, you will also get a 70% instant discount on a 3-year plan.
