How to Download and Install NordVPN on Amazon Firestick

By Srijani Ghosh / July 25, 2023

To install NordVPN on Amazon Firestick devices, you need to rely on the Amazon App Store. This is a simple procedure that takes no more than a couple of minutes, and there's no need for any kind of manual configuration. However, you can also install the NordVPN app manually if you wish to avoid the App Store for any reason.

Also, NordVPN works on a vast range of Fire TV devices. More precisely, only the first generation of Amazon Fire TV Stick (launched in 2014) does not support VPN apps. All other Firesticks come with the Amazon App Store, making NordVPN compatible with those devices.

How to Install NordVPN on Firestick

There are 2 ways to obtain the NordVPN app and install NordVPN on your Fire TV Stick. These are the options available right now:

Method #1: Install NordVPN on Firestick via Amazon App Store

Before you proceed to download and install NordVPN on a Fire TV Stick, ensure your device is connected to the Web. You'll also need a computer or phone nearby. Follow these steps:

1. Subscribe to NordVPN using your computer or phone and any Web browser.

2. Use your Firestick's Search tool to look up 'NordVPN.' You should see it listed among the search results, so go ahead and select 'Get.'

Method #2: Install NordVPN on Fire TV Stick Manually

Another way to install NordVPN on a Firestick is to sideload the app. That means you'll get its APK file and then install the app manually - like so:

1. Get your NordVPN subscription using your phone/computer and any Web browser.

2. On your Firestick, go to Settings > Device > Developer Options. Then, select 'ON' for these menu entries - 'ADB Debugging' and 'Apps from Unknown Sources.'

3. Return to your Firestick's home screen and search for 'Downloader.' Open the app's overview on the Amazon App Store and then download/install the app.

4. Launch Downloader and navigate to 'Browser' on the left. Then, input the following Web address: Click on 'Download App.'

5. Open the newly downloaded APK file and install the app manually. Just follow the prompts on the screen and select 'Install.' Then, open the app (you might need to go to Settings > Manage Installed Applications > NordVPN > Launch Application).

6. Pick 'Log In' and follow the prompts you'll see on your screen. After that, you'll gain unlimited access to all NordVPN servers, features, and options. That's it!

In some cases, sideloaded apps might have a hard time working with your Firestick remote. So, if you encounter issues with navigating the NordVPN app, we recommend trying CetusPlay, a free app that gives you additional input methods.

Final Thoughts

As this guide illustrates, installing NordVPN on a Firestick is a dead simple procedure thanks to the VPN's effort to bring multiple ways to install its native FireOS app. That said, we recommend using the Amazon App Store primarily, as that's the easiest way to get started with NordVPN.

Also, keep in mind that you'll get 6 simultaneous connections. So, why now try out this VPN on more devices? Our central guide on how to set up NordVPN will help you do that just.
