If you’re one of the many people using an Amazon FireStick around the world, you’ve probably thought about the security of your browsing data. If you haven’t already, you should.

While you may enjoy FireStick’s simple downloading, browsing, and streaming experience, keep in mind that your internet service provider (ISP) can see your data unless you use a virtual private network (VPN) like Nord VPN on FireStick.

That’s right—regardless of what you’re doing, your ISP has the authority to report such information to local authorities or even block websites and apps. Because of this risk, you should think about using a VPN.

Features of NordVPN on FireStick?

NordVPN adds a slew of new features to your FireStick. Here are some useful features.

Worldwide Servers

NordVPN has over 5,310 servers in 60 countries to which your FireStick can’t connect. This means you can bypass any geo-restrictions and improve your streaming experience.

No-Logs Policy

Some VPNs log and sell your browsing history, which defeats the purpose of using a VPN in the first place. NordVPN for FireStick does not do this, instead enforcing a strict no-logs policy to ensure the security of your data.

Ad Blocker

NordVPN includes an ad blocker for your FireStick called CyberSec. When you enable NordVPN for FireStick, malware, ads, and other threats will be blocked while you browse.

Official Sports Servers

How to Install NordVPN on FireStick

Now that you already have an account you can download the VPN on your Firestick. And there are mainly two methods of downloading this VPN on your Firestick. 

Firstly, you can easily download the VPN on your Firestick by downloading it from the Amazon App Store. But some developers feel lazy to develop apps for the Amazon App Store. 

So that’s the second method. You can download Nord VPN on your Firestick by downloading it from Downloader. Most users use this method to download any third-party app on their Firestick. 

We are going to guide you on this effective method.

First, you have to download that third-party app called Downloader.

Step 1: Browse to the Settings section of your Fire TV Stick.

NordVPN Server Options

Let’s take a look at some of NordVPN’s specialty server options.


P2P is an abbreviation for peer-to-peer. It’s typically used for one-to-one file sharing between users. You don’t need to enable P2P if you’re just browsing or watching a streaming service.

Onion Over VPN

Onion Over VPN is exactly what it sounds like if you’re familiar with The Onion Router (Tor). This option routes your data through the VPN server and Tor before reaching its destination, doubling the encryption of your data.


If you want to get more involved with VPN connections, you can buy a dedicated IP address. This means that you will not share an IP address with other users.

Instead, NordVPN will assign you a unique IP address for browsing. This comes at an additional cost, so if you want to use it, you must add it to your plan on the NordVPN website.


Is it possible to get NordVPN for free?

Technically, you can install the NordVPN app on your FireStick for free. NordVPN’s service, on the other hand, is not free. When you sign up as a new user, you will receive a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Will NordVPN make my FireStick faster?

Installing NordVPN on your FireStick will not speed up your internet connection. In fact, installing any VPN will reduce your speeds slightly. This is due to the fact that your connection is being routed through a different server.

However, you will have privacy from your internet service provider, which prevents the company from discovering that you are streaming videos and throttling you.

To help mitigate speed loss, stream videos, and other bandwidth-intensive activities on the nearest server possible.


This guide will teach you everything you need to know about installing and using NordVPN on FireStick. You can now take your FireStick anywhere and enjoy secure browsing and streaming content from around the world without having to worry about your privacy. If you want to improve your experience, take advantage of the app’s specialty servers.
