Amazon Fire TV Stick and Amazon Fire TV ExpressVPN app setup tutorial


Let’s go through the steps for setting up
ExpressVPN on an Amazon Fire TV Stick or Amazon Fire TV. To complete this tutorial, you’ll need an
Amazon Fire TV Stick or Amazon Fire TV, and an ExpressVPN subscription. Begin by turning on your Amazon device. Select the magnifying glass in the top-left
corner and search for “ExpressVPN.” The ExpressVPN app should come up as a result
under “Apps & Games.” Click on the app, and then click on the download
button. When the app finishes downloading, click “Open.” The ExpressVPN app will appear onscreen. To activate the app, select “Sign in”. Enter your account email, followed by “Next.”Do
the same for your password. Now you’ll configure the VPN on your Amazon
device. Select “OK.” You’ll be asked to allow ExpressVPN to accept
connection requests. Select “OK” again. Your app will ask if you’d like to share
anonymous information to help make ExpressVPN faster and more reliable. Click “Allow” if you’d like to share
anonymous analytics, or “Don’t allow” if you’d rather not. Your app is all set up! Now you can connect to ExpressVPN. You can navigate the app with your Amazon
remote, with a red outline indicating the current position of your cursor. By default, ExpressVPN will suggest a Smart
Location, the location that provides you with the most optimal experience. To connect to the Smart Location, simply click
on the central “on button.” The button will glow green when connected. To disconnect, click the on-button again. To change locations, select the “Choose
location” button. A triangle next to a country indicates that
there are multiple VPN locations in that country. If you simply click the country, you’ll
automatically connect to the optimal server location in that country. However, if you want to choose a particular
server location in that country, highlight the country in question and hold down the
selection button. The server locations will drop down, allowing
you to select a particular location. To delete the ExpressVPN app from your Amazon
device, highlight the ExpressVPN app under “Your Apps and Games”—not under “Recent.” Then click the menu button in the bottom right
of you remote (it looks like three horizontal lines). An option menu will appear in the bottom-right
corner of the screen. Select “Uninstall.” Congrats! You’ve learned how to set up ExpressVPN
on your Amazon Fire TV Stick or Amazon Fire TV. If you have any questions, ExpressVPN Support
is available 24/7. Thanks for watching!

  • You forgot to mention Amazon will not let you view movies or tv from Amazon while using the VPN. It says that you are not in the area.

  • Wir haben EXPRESSVPN getestet! Schaut auf unserem Channel vorbei und informiert euch über die wichtigsten Fakten rund um die VPN-Verschlüsselung!

  • I'm from Israel and I would like to buy an Amazon Fire TV in order to unblock Prime Video library of the US and UK. Will it be possible to do that ? Can I even get the ExpressVPN app from my area ?

  • This does not work on the Fire Stick for Amazon video for us, it only works for Netflix on the Fire Stick. Amazon is now blocked in our home country as well on the fire stick after installing Express VPN.. is there a solution for this?

  • ok i downloaded the ap, signed in and it says its connected… on the "connection request" (1:03 mark in the video) screen it claims that there will be a little key on my screen when the VPN is active.. i do not see this for some reason.. am i still connected ?

  • Not working – even reset password, but still just sits with rotating circle (of frustration), and a little blue sight saying ‘still trying to sign in’ anybody ?
