Why is it recommended to have a VPN for FireStick?
Before we get into the process of installing the Spectrum App on firestick, I will highly recommend you get a VPN. Having a VPN is recommended because, without any VPN solution, your device’s IP address is easily exposed to the Internet. Hence, anyone can advantage of and track your activities without even you realizing it.
Also, as you will be watching copyrighted content for FREE using the Spectrum TV app, there can be legal issues if your IP is so readily available to track. Therefore, using a VPN is the best choice before continuing this further.
The right VPN solution can high your real identity and makes it very difficult for anyone to track your online activities and data. With a VPN, you can even switch your device’s location and go to restricted content on your favorite apps and websites.
If you are looking for VPN recommendations, I would suggest you go for a reputed VPN brand like ExpressVPN or NordVPN; they both are very secure and provide fast services that will suit your requirements.
