How to Install VyprVPN on FireStick?

Is it possible to setup the VyprVPN app on an Amazon Fire TV or FireStick? The Amazon Fire Stick has become one of the most popular streaming devices. It’s cheap, Android-based, and offers a wide range of streaming apps. The only issue is that these streaming channels are geoblocked. In other words, the channels you can access on your FireStick depend on your current location. That can cause you to lose the ability to view these channels if you are currently travelling abroad. Using VPN allows you to bypass these regional restrictions. In case you have signed up with VyprVPN, or are thinking about registering a new VPN account with them, you’re probably wondering how to install VyprVPN on FireStick.

Installing VyprVPN on FireStick – Is It Doable?

VyprVPN do have an Android VPN app that you can find on Google Play Store. However, the VyprVPN application was not designed with Amazon Fire Stick in mind. Due to the fact the FireStick does not support touch screens and is limited to a landscape view, lots of VPN apps don’t work properly on it. That means that even if you manage to load the VyprVPN app to your FireStick, using it would be extremely restricted due to compatibility issues. Therefore, you’d have to sign up with a VPN service provider that does offer a VPN app that actually works on FireStick. Two good examples are IPVanish or BulletVPN.
