Youtube is the most famous and most used video-sharing website on the web today. Millions of users have uploaded videos in it and there are videos which have crossed a
Customers always wish to use YouTube on all their devices and when it is not available on the Amazon app store, then it will be the major disadvantage of Firestick. However, the issue between two digital giants have solved now and YouTube is finally available to download through the Amazon app store. Other Google applications like YouTube TV and YouTube Kids are also released on the Amazon store.
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.
NOTE: If you previously installed YouTube through the sideloading method, uninstall it and install the official version from the app store.
