Even so, I would prefer to alert you the whole stuff you stream on GAIA is easily seen by your ISP and government. Which means if you dare to stream any copyrighted stuff, you may fall a prey to legal trouble.
Installation of IPVanish
Well, I can take you out of this disturbance by suggesting you a way to keep your content away from the eyes of ISP and government. For this approach you need a satisfactory VPN for fire stick. VPN will allow you to deceive ISP, geo restrictions and government.
However, I like and recommend “IPVanish”, which is not only the fastest but also the safest VPN. And the plus point is that it is very easy-to-install on Fire Stick. It serves in 60 countries.
Before proceeding, I would like to clear you that I’m not promoting the violation of copyright legislation. But, sometimes you may stream a copyrighted content unknowingly. So, for such reasons I’ll guide you how to hide your streams from evil eyes.
1: Register yourself by using the following link:
2: Navigate towards the search icon of your Fire Stick and type: “Ipvanish”.
If you are a user of Android TV Boxes, phones and tablets, you can easily download the Ipvanish app in the google play store.
3: Click where it reads “Ipvanish”, in the current prompt.
4: Tap on IPVanish icon, on the left side of the window.
5: Click where it reads “DOWNLOADS”.
6: NOW, the download option will be replaced by “OPEN”, Click over it.
7 You are required to enter your username and password for the cause of login. Basically it is required to register you for IPVanish Service
8: Click on the connect button, which is the first option.
9: If you encounter a connection request appears, click on “OK”
10: You may notice that your IP address varies along with your location of connection. You are now in “Incognito” mode.
Now let the VPN run in the background, And enjoy your Addon.
You have secured your connection with the most reliable VPN for fire stick.
