NordVPN is one of the best VPN services available on the internet as it provides no-log security. In case you are using 3rd-party apps for streaming or Kodi then you must learn how to Install NordVPN on Firestick. Because these types of apps can contain pirated content which may lead to some serious trouble.
In this guide, you will learn the installation process for FireTV Stick 4K and for the FireTV Cube as well. All the steps are the same so you don’t need to worry about anything. If you are facing any problem with any step just make sure to check out the screenshot attached below.
How To Install NordVPN On Firestick
For those who are using the 1st generation of FireTV Stick then make sure to upgrade it as in the old version, it doesn’t work. This is for the 2nd and 3rd generation only so we can easily download it using the Amazon App Store.
There is no need to make any changes as this is now officially available on the Store, just follow the steps given below to install NordVPN on Firestick:

1. Close all programs if you are running any and then from Home Screen hover to the above menu and select Search.
2. From there using the keyboard type NordVPN and then press the search button.
3. You will then see many apps related to this term so just open the first result (see screenshot below).
4. Now just click on the Download (You Own it) button and wait for a while.
5. The app will start downloading and within a few seconds it will be installed, when the installation completes just click Open.
The app will be launched so now input the login credentials that you used at the time of purchasing the plan. If you don’t purchased yet then first make sure to go here and purchase a premium plan.
NordVPN doesn’t come with any free plan but it only provides users with 7 days of a free trial. After the trial ends you will be required to buy a monthly package which is quite affordable.
Their apps are available for various platforms not only on FireTV only, however you can use on multiple devices at the same time. It is in the list of our Top best VPNs for Firestick that I tested personally and would recommend using.
Install NordVPN Using Downloader
Now as we learn the process of installation directly from the App Store but our job isn’t done yet. Because in most cases it may not work properly or somehow you face issues as well. In this way, we can use an alternative method of sideloading NordVPN using Downloader.
Basically, Downloader is a free application that is available on the Amazon Store which helps a user to get 3rd-party apps. But to use Downloader we first need to enable the installation of Unknown Source on our device as you won’t be able to install any app except App Store.
Below are the quick steps for enabling Unknown Source:
- Open Home Screen and from the above menu go to Settings.
- Move forward and then select My FireTV.
- After this open Developer Options.
- Scroll down and select Unknown Sources.
- A prompt will appear so again select Enable.
Now the installation of 3rd-party apps is enabled so we can now move to the further guide. Although if you want complete details on Unknown Sources then you can check it out here: How to Enable Apps from Unknown Sources on Firestick
Ok, so make sure to follow the below steps carefully:
If an application is running then close it and from Home Screen just hover above the menu and press the Search box.
Now you need to type Downloader on the next screen and hit the Search icon on the keyboard.
At this time you will see the Downloader icon appears with the orange background so just click on it.
After this, you just need to click on the Download button and when it’s completed then click on Open to launch it.
When you launch it for the first time you will then notice it asks for several permission just to allow everything.
After allowing every request now you will see a box appears there with the http:// prefix. Navigate to that box and then press the select button, so now remove everything and then type https://firesticklab.com/nordvpn.apk and click Go.
At this time Downloader will start connecting to the server and then NordVPN starts downloading.
Just wait for a while until the download completes and then you will see the installation menu appears so from here click Install.
When NordVPN is installed now click Done.
You will then see the Downloader again so now click the Delete button, in the next screen you will be asked for confirmation so again click Delete.
That’s it now the NordVPN apk is deleted but the application is installed which you can launch by going to Your Apps & Channels and then See All. Just navigate below and then you will see the icon there so just press the select button to launch it.
