Avast VPN on Firestick

Avast SecureLine VPN is a VPN service that safeguards your privacy with DNS/IPv6 leak protection and bank-grade encryption. It offers 55+ server locations across 34 countries. It also lets you unblock the US library of Netflix. Other features include 256-bit AES encryption, P2P support, lightning-fast servers, automatic kill switch, and more. The following guide will show you the steps to install and use Avast VPN on Firestick devices.

The following are the different subscription plans available on Avast VPN:

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.

NordVPN Deal:

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 68% instant discount + 3 months free.
