VPN is a great feature to use if you want to protect your private data while browsing on the internet. Using the Opera VPN on your Google TV, you can safely browse & access any geo-restricted websites and content. Also, this app is highly secure and will hide your online activity by changing your IP address.

Unfortunately, the Opera browser is not compatible with Firestick. But don’t worry, because you can still use the app on Firestick by sideloading it through the Downloader app. In this article, we will guide you through how to use the Opera VPN on Firestick.

Tip-off !!

Streaming without a VPN exposes your IP address, making you vulnerable to privacy breaches and hacker attacks. Without encryption, your online activities are more susceptible to monitoring by ISPs, snoopers, and the government. Lastly, accessing geo-restricted content may be impossible without a VPN, limiting your entertainment options. Hence, it is recommended to use a VPN.

Of all the available VPNs, I recommend NordVPN if you ever want to watch the desired movies, TV shows, or sports events on your Firestick without risking your privacy. NordVPN is the fastest and best VPN service provider with global coverage. You can now avail yourself of the New Year's deal of 67% off + 3 Months Extra of NordVPN to stay anonymous.
