Governments and ISP (Internet service provider) across the world monitor their users’ online activities. So if you are planning to stream online then we recommend using a VPN for your safety and privacy. You may face some legal problems if you have streamed any copyrighted content on your device. Many people received a legal notice from the government and the only fool can challenge copyrighted law of government. So always use a VPN to hide your identity.
A VPN network will encrypt all your data as soon as you install its software on your android device or Fire TV Stick. VPN is a good way to hide your identity and improve your online security. Also, you can change your IP to simulate that you are connected from another country. It will help you to see another live-streaming app that is forbidden in your country.
I personally use IPVanish VPN to protect my privacy. IPVanish offers a 7-day money-back guarantee so you can ask for a refund if you don’t like the service. We are currently offering a discount to FirestickApps readers. Get IPVanish VPN.
