Let us discuss more on how to install Lime Player for Firestick, and Windows in this post.
Lime Player & Showbox
Lime Player is a media streaming application that manages your local media files as well. It can be used to stream online video content. Showbox is an application that allows users to watch movies and videos for free. A recent update from Showbox allows users to watch videos only through Lime Player. There are two alternatives available which include MX Player & XPlayer but as of now, only Lime Player is used to watched Showbox movies.
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.
