Avast VPN

Many people have been looking for a way to install Avast on firestick, especially since it has become popular among Firestick users. If you’re one of these people- this post will show you the best ways to get Avast VPN on your Amazon Fire TV or Fire TV Stick! Before I show you how to do that- let me introduce the newest version of Avast VPN called SecureLine. It’s like Avast VPN but better in every way!

Secureline is Avast’s brand new VPN service (that comes with any paid license). The difference between SecureLine and regular old Avast VPN is that the security line is faster, more lightweight, more user-friendly, and uses less bandwidth which means you can stream content while using the VPN. This is a HUGE plus if you’re using KODI and streaming movies or TV shows because the dreaded “streaming blocked” message will never come up with Secureline active.

SecureLine: Avast’s new VPN service that all paid Avast users get for free! (you must download Avast VPN to access the secure line feature)

How to Install Avast on Firestick – Method 1

It has been reported by several people in the comments section below that this method does NOT work with all firesticks. I have not tested it myself so I cannot confirm or deny whether or not it works, but several people seem to be having success with it. Nevertheless-this guide will show you how to install avast on a firestick:

  • First, go to the search bar and type in “Downloader”
  • Click on “Downloader” once it appears so that an icon appears on your screen.
  • Click on the Downloader app and open it up so that you can begin downloading Avast onto your Fire TV Stick! It will automatically download the .APK file for Avast onto your device. (You may have to click “Allow” if you get a message about unknown sources)
  • After Avast is finished downloading, click on the A symbol and choose install (after it’s done installing, launch Avast
  • Enjoy having added security for free. There is no reason not to use this great app as it does not affect your device’s performance in any way.

I have taken the liberty of mirroring Avast for your easy download. Download Avast Now.

This method is a little more complicated but much more effective than Method 1. This method will allow you to install the newest version of avast so that you can get all of its great new features! I am going to show you exactly how to do this- so let’s get started:

  • First, go to settings and click system (on older remote controls, click “Device”)

  • In developer options, scroll down until you see “Apps from unknown sources” and make sure it’s clicked ON (if not, go ahead and click it)
