The ProtonVPN Android TV app protects your privacy and allows you to access blocked and censored content while using your smart TV. Although not currently available yet on the official Amazon Appstore, it can be quite easily sideloaded onto Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks using the following instructions. Once installed in this way, the app works just like any regular Fire TV app.
The ProtonVPN for Android TV app supports Fire OS versions 6+ and instructions vary a little depending on which Fire TV device you are using. If you’re not sure about this, search for and install the free Informer app. This will tell you which device you have.
1. Install the Downloader app
Search for the Downloader app on your Fire TV device and install it in the usual way. Don’t open it yet.
2. Enable Unknown sources
If you have a Fire TV, go to Settings → Device & Software → Developer Options.
If you have a Fire TV box, Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Fire TV Cube, go to Settings → My Fire TV → Developer Options.
If you have a Fire OS 6 device, simply switch Apps from Unknown Sources to ON. There is no need to enable ADB Debugging.
If you have a Fire OS 7 device, click Install unknown apps and select the Downloader app from the list. Press the Home button on your remote to return to the Home screen.
3. Install the ProtonVPN for Android app
Open Downloader and allow the app to access files on your device. Then type the following address into the URL bar:
Scroll down to Assets and select to expand. Select the ProtonVPN-xxxx.apk file ( xxxx is the latest version number. For example, ProtonVPN-188.8.131.52.apk). This will always be the latest version of our app.
The Downloader app will automatically download and start to install our app. Simply select Install when prompted.
Once the app is installed, open it.
You can now log in to the app in the usual way. Full instructions for this are here. If you don’t yet have a Proton account, you can sign up for a free plan for Android to use ProtonVPN on your Amazon Fire device.
Once the app is installed, we recommend disabling Apps from Unknown Sources in order to protect your device from malicious apps. To do this, follow the steps outlined in Step 2 of this guide.
