Amazon Firestick is now a handy streaming device for everyone. If you are owning a TV with an HDMI port, then Firestick will be the best product to convert your TV into a Smart TV. Even inbuilt Smart TV users feel comfortable using the Amazon Fire TV stick. Firestick works on the Android platform and there are a series of updates released now and then like other Android devices. Mostly updates are automated and the device updates automatically whenever it gets an update. But for people who wonder on how to Update Firestick, here are the steps to be followed:
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.
